Journal of Sociology
Special Issue: - ‘Transforming Rural Futures’
Dear ~~first_name~~,
We are very happy to share the news of the Journal of Sociology Special Issue on 'Transforming Rural Futures'. Guest editors for the issue are Christina Malatzky and Kiah Smith. Below is the abstract from Christina and Kaih's editorial as well as links to each paper included in the issue. 
"Historically and now, the rural is frequently relegated to the periphery of broader public and policy debates, and within the discipline of sociology. At this moment in time, where the world needs radical re-imagining for the future, rural perspectives and realities must be visible and addressed. This article introduces a special issue of the Journal of Sociology which seeks to articulate how rural sociology is a crucial field of study for (re)imaging rural futures. In this article, we provide an overview of the research included in the collection, which draws much needed attention to some of the specific contemporary challenges encountered in rural places and some of the possibilities for transforming rural futures, and rural sociology. We argue that rural places are a key site where transformative change can, and does occur, and that rural sociologists are ideally positioned to work with and for rural communities in effecting desired change."
