Recent rural community studies

Crow, Graham (2008) Recent rural community studies International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 11, (2), pp. 131-139. (doi:10.1080/13645570801940848).

Record type: Article


This article examines recent rural community studies by considering, in turn: comparisons, methods, theories and community studies as vehicles for developing social scientific arguments. 'Recent' is defined as from 1980 onwards. 'Rural' is taken to include research conducted in country towns. And 'community studies' is understood as an inclusive term embracing various research methodologies. Because this field cannot be covered exhaustively, attention is focused on research that has a special bearing on the future of community studies. Particular reference is made to the work of Colin Bell, which helped to shape recent research agendas.
