The essay is a first result of a research project aimed to investigate the features and causes of the lack of communication existing between the Anglo-American disciplinary context in human geography and other non-Anglophone geographical milieus in western Europe. Considering that the Anglo-American geography/ers dominate unchallenged on the international disciplinary domain and that this hegemony becomes more and more problematic in the framework of the globalisation and neo-liberalisation of the Academia, the paper claims the need to (re-)start a debate on the epistemological and theoretical premises of geographical research within the different existing traditions focusing attention on the ways in which space, culture and their relationships are theorised within them.

Abstract

The essay is a first result of a research project aimed to investigate the features and causes of the lack of communication existing between the Anglo-American disciplinary context in human geography and other non-Anglophone geographical milieus in western Europe. Considering that the Anglo-American geography/ers dominate unchallenged on the international disciplinary domain and that this hegemony becomes more and more problematic in the framework of the globalisation and neo-liberalisation of the Academia, the paper claims the need to (re-)start a debate on the epistemological and theoretical premises of geographical research within the different existing traditions focusing attention on the ways in which space, culture and their relationships are theorised within them.
