    The Knowledge Cultures of Changing Farming Practices in a Water Town of the Southern Yangtze Valley, China.Pingyang Liu, Neil Ravenscroft, Marie K. Harder & Xingyi Dai - 2016 - Agriculture and Human Values 33 (2):291-304.
    This paper presents an oral history of farming in the Southern Yangtze Valley in China, covering the period from pre-liberation to recent market liberalization. Using the stories and observations of 31 elderly residents of a small water town, the paper describes the hard labor of traditional farming practices and the acquiescence of many when, post-liberation, they could leave farming for better-paid factory work. However, in a departure from conventional analyses, these oral histories suggest that the co-dependency culture of traditional farming (...)

    Beyond Agriculture: The Counter-Hegemony of Community Farming. [REVIEW]Neil Ravenscroft, Niamh Moore, Ed Welch & Rachel Hanney - 2013 - Agriculture and Human Values 30 (4):629-639.
    In this paper we seek to understand the interplay between increasingly widely held concerns about the hegemony of industrialized agriculture and the emergence of counter-hegemonic activities, such as membership of community supported agriculture (CSA) initiatives. Informed by Blackshaw’s (Leisure, Abingdon, Routledge, 2010) work on “liquid leisure,” we offer a new leisure-based conceptualization of the tactics of counter-hegemony, arguing in the process that food politics offers a rich site for new, transitional identity formation. Using a case study of a well-established community (...)

    Growing Intimate Privatepublics: Everyday Utopia in the Naturecultures of a Young Lesbian and Bisexual Women’s Allotment.Neil Ravenscroft, Amelia Lee, Claire Holmes, Jacqui Gabb, Andrew Church & Niamh Moore - 2014 - Feminist Theory 15 (3):327-343.
    The Young Women’s Group in Manchester is a ‘young women’s peer health project, run by and for young lesbian and bisexual women’, which runs an allotment as one of its activities. At a time when interest in allotments and gardening appears to be on the increase, the existence of yet another community allotment may seem unremarkable. Yet we suggest that this queer allotment poses challenges for conventional theorisations of allotments, as well as for understandings of public and private. In this (...)

Raymond, Jorge Rodríguez-Morales & Samarthia Thankappan - unknown
    This paper concludes a special feature of Sustainability Science that explores a broad range of social value theoretical traditions, such as religious studies, social psychology, indigenous knowledge, economics, sociology, and philosophy. We introduce a novel transdisciplinary conceptual framework that revolves around concepts of ‘lenses’ and ‘tensions’ to help navigate value diversity. First, we consider the notion of lenses: perspectives on value and valuation along diverse dimensions that describe what values focus on, how their sociality is envisioned, and what epistemic and (...)
