Beyond sociology: structure, agency, and strategy among tenants in India

Wendy Olsen ()

No 021/2008, SCEME Working Papers: Advances in Economic Methodology from SCEME

Abstract: This paper arises from the Global Poverty Research Group, under which I have conducted fieldwork about land rental relationships in rural south India. The paper introduces strategies as a solution to the theorists' dilemma of choice vs. constraints with particular respect to rural tenants' decisions. My aim is to treat tenants (as both households and as individual agents) in their structural contexts whilst respecting the complexity and co-mutuality of their agency.
