This thesis is on the elements which compose the peasants’ socio-territorial reproduction. It aims at analyzing the strategies used by settled peasants to guarantee their families remain in the lot. Its fundamental element were the reflections on the intergenerational conflicts and negotiations between peasants and mediators which are, in different levels, the foundation to allow the process of socio-territorial reproduction in rural settlements to continue. The research was conducted in the area of Pontal do Paranapanema, in the far west of São Paulo State, more specifically in the settlement of Nova Conquista – SP, which has 104 lots, from which 77 are in the city of Rancharia – SP and 27 in the city of Martinópolis – SP and in the settlement of Porto Maria – SP which is situated in the city of Rosana – SP and has 41 lots. The choosing of the settlements is due to the fact that the former present a meaningful amount of household peasants in wage earner position and the later is the result of struggles of household peasants from Gleba XV de Novembro settlement. The methodologies used in this research were bibliographic research, documentary research, interviews, field diaries and social cartography. The theoretical approach is based on the concept of labor, territory gender, rural youth and socio-territorial reproduction. (AU)
