International Symposium on work in agriculture at Maringa State University (ParanĂ¡, Brasil), 8 – 11 November 2016

This symposium aims to gather and consolidate a wide community of researchers, academics and advisors dedicated to studying the various facets of what constitutes “work in agriculture”. The common theme is the reference to the diversity of farming models to explore:

  • employment and the remuneration of work;
  • operational conditions of the farming activity (the form of work organization, the pace and the pressures, health at work);
  • accessibility to the profession (installation, professional paths);
  • professional identities under discussion within the farming world and the image of farming occupations as seen from society at large.
