Abstract

The aim of this paper is to exam rural transformation and the persistence of rurality in China. Using Xinxiang village as a case study, it investigates the persistence self-reliance and the collective system – after the institutional reforms of corporatisation, conversion of the villagers’ committee to the residents’ committee; and conversion of household registration status from rural to urban. The continuity of these rural practices suggests that institutional attempts to modernize rural organization and urbanize the rural residents’ household registration status do not bring the Xinxiang neighborhood to the end of rurality
