Por une releture du Marco Polo de Paul Vidal de La Blache

Guy Mercier
RE-READING PAUL VIDAL DE LA BLACHE'S MARCO POLO - Although Paul Vidal de La Blache's work has been widely commented upon, his first works are barely known. This is the case, for instance, of his first book, "Marco Polo. Son temps et ses voyages", published in 1880. My purpose is to analyse the geographical content of that book and to elaborate a hypothesis as to its role in the institutionalisation of Vidalian thought.

Planteamientos críticos y alternativos en Geografía

Paz Benito Del Pozo
This paper is a product of the reflection on geographic thought carried out in the defence of the author’s teaching material at the University of León, Spain. Reviewed and adapted for publication, this summarised version analyses the contribution of so-called radical or critical geographies to the construction of current human geography, as well as other influential approaches derived from the limitations and the wearing-down of radical discourse, paying special attention to humanistic geography.

Eduardo Brito Henriques
The present paper tries to look at the culture-innovation nexus in periphery. Starting with a theoretical discussion on this issue, in which the role of culture in current capitalism is analysed, we raise the question whether the increasing imporance of culture in the present economic context has been creating new opportunities for peripheral regions to innovate, namely by the valorization of tradition.The paper will highlight the results of four case studies from the handicraft pottery...

Mediterranean Migrations: Regionalisms Versus Globalisation

Martin Baldwin-Eduards
This paper challenges the claim of globalisation as a cause ofimmigration into Southern Europe and, on an empirical basis, identifies regionalisation as being the primary issue, along with networked migratory patterns. However, the changing patterns of immigration do present challenges to both state and society. It is argued here that recent policy responses in Portugal, Italy and Spain have been inconsistent and irrational – reflecting more the ‘securitisation’ of migration than European reality. Earlier policy...

Paisagem e geografia

Teresa Barata Salgueiro
LANDSCAPE AND GEOGRAPHY – The word landscape was first applied to renaissance paintings, but the concept really emerged during the scientific revolution that replaced the theological explanation of the world and was part of the events that led to the making of the modern world. Landscape has a central place in classical geography because of the importance romantic aesthetics attached to nature in the early 19th century. It was then seen as a piece of...

'Greenfields' and 'Brownfields': automotive industrial development in the UK and in Portugal

Andrew Pike & Mário Vale
The industrial policy in the UK and in Portugal, as in most EU countries, seeks to attract new investment capacity, to create jobs and to promote the impact of the so-called "demonstration efect" of "greenfield" development strategies pursued in the new plants of inward investors on existing or "brownfield" plants.

Inundações na Cidade de Lisboa durante o Século XX e os seus factores agravantes

Pedro Elias Oliveira & Catarina Ramos
INUNDATIONS IN LISBON DURING THE 20TH CENTURY AND THEIR URBANAND PHYSICAL CAUSES. Lisbon often suffers inundations, which must be classified as urban inundations, because the flooded areas involved are impermeable due to urban development. These inundations are not related to the overflow of watercourses, but can be classified as flash inundations because of the speed with which they form and spread. The present study covers a time period from 1918/19 to 1997/98, during which 420...
