Abstract

'Rising China' - the nation, the notion, and the buzzword - sparks dreams and triggers fears. Borders that were closed during the Cold War era have again become zones of contact and exchange. At the same time, security concerns remain high, territorial disputes still loom large. In this context, engaging in everyday neighbouring relations has become a necessity for those living in these zones of contact and exchange. The experiences and realities of relation-making across China's borders shape life in profound and lasting ways.

Abstract

In March 2014, the e-mail list of the European Academic Network on Romani Studies1 hosted a discussion on definitions of the population known as ‘Roma’. It began when one of the subscribers to the list – which at the time brought together some 350 academics who specialised in Romani/Gypsy studies – asked for reactions to two generalisations which she came across while preparing a legal review of a document on cultural rights: (1) that all Roma speak a variety of the same language, Romanes; and (2) that Roma generally consider themselves to be a nation. Some two-dozen scholars posted their reactions, which together offer a fairly exhaustive summary of contemporary views on the subject

Abstract

Western military presence wanes in Afghanistan and a transformed security environment challenges borders and stability in Central Asia. This book examines how the tensions relating to the reorganization of external military presence interact with regional states’ ambitions and challenge the borders already contested by numerous dividing lines. It studies a complex political landscape across which radical Islam connected with international terrorism is feared to spread as the international mission initiated in the wake of the 9/11 attacks winds down.

Abstract

En dépit d’une image stéréotypée d’un monde globalisé et ouvert, la notion de frontière ne cesse d’interpeller les chercheurs au travers de deux questions majeures : que deviennent alors les frontières entre espaces géographiques, linguistiques et culturels dans notre société cosmopolite, urbanisée, mobile ? Comment sont-elles produites, (re)produites et/ou configurées par les pratiques sociales ? À partir de disciplines aussi variées que sont la linguistique, la sociologie, l’anthropologie et la géographie, cet ouvrage propose de réfléchir à la façon dont les frontières sont repérées, conçues, ou encore produites par les pratiques des acteurs sociaux en interaction. Dès lors, elles ne sont plus appréhendées comme un produit fini et irrévocable, mais comme une matière en train de se faire, dessinée par une multiplicité d’acteurs et située dans une diversité de contextes.

Abstract

Esta obra busca comprender las construcciones de sentidos sociales del espacio denominado Araucanía-Norpatagonia. Y es importante destacar que los sentidos no son unívocos. En este caso, la pluralidad de lo territorial se intuye en las diferentes perspectivas de acercamiento, mostrando tanto la polisemia como las tensiones detrás de conceptos tales como espacio, frontera o representación.Para ello, los investigadores y cientistas sociales que escriben este volumen, asumen el debate centro-periferia entendiendo que la particular mirada desarrollada desde un territorio de integración tardía, como es la Patagonia tanto en Argentina como en Chile, construye una mirada epistemológica necesaria y singular.Así, la Patagonia adopta un carácter plural, las naciones se diversifican y los sentidos y prácticas de lo estatal se complejizan. Además, las territorialidades y las subjetividades forman parte de los desafíos que se abordan, reconociéndose como abiertos.

Abstract

Los textos aquí reunidos buscan reflexionar acerca de algunas representaciones, discursos y prácticas que construyen el espacio denominado Patagonia. Para ello, los autores parten de marcos teórico-metodológicos diversos y transdisciplinares como los estudios subalternos, la teoría decolonial, las investigaciones de género, la ética ambiental, la geografía cultural y religiosa y el ecofeminismo. Los temas abordados son: la relación entre cultura-naturaleza como reflexión política; religiosidad de migrantes latinoamericanos en San Carlos de Bariloche; producción de territorialidad a partir de la cartografía colonial; desierto y política pública en la Patagonia.

Abstract

Este libro reúne diversos estudios sobre la población migrante de países latinoamericanos en la Patagonia argentina. Los autores analizan las experiencias y prácticas culturales de estos grupos habitualmente ignorados o invisibilizados por los discursos dominantes, con el objetivo de comprender y aportar al conocimiento de la trama social patagónica. Los estudios abordan cuatro ejes temáticos: los desplazamientos y las dinámicas migratorias; las configuraciones productivas a partir de relaciones laborales, trayectorias familiares y cuestiones de género;las representaciones sociales de experiencias locales y barriales;la construcción de sentidos de pertenencia a partir de prácticas religiosas.
