|Abstract: ||This study concerns the social changes resulting from Structural Adjustment in S. Tomé e Príncipe and the access to nationalized land. Our subject is the particular case of a new farmer category called “medium sized agricultural entrepreneurs” and our aim is to identify the strategies of these farmers, through the understanding of transfer between their individual and collective stories.
For this purpose we used the comprehensive interview method semi-structured in two main subjects: the social and work story and the technical and economic behaviour and practices assumed in their medium sized agricultural entrepreneurs role. From these, a social identity typology was defined. This concept, belongs to the constructivist and interpretative sociologies, and allows targeting the relational mode of identity construction giving a closest look on social change.
The proposed typology consists in three ideal types: Business Mans, Farmers and Farm Directors.|
