Editorial: Geographie als Geisteswissenschaft - Geographie in den Geisteswissenschaften


Korf, Benedikt; Verne, Julia (2016). Editorial: Geographie als Geisteswissenschaft - Geographie in den Geisteswissenschaften. Geographica Helvetica, 71(4):365-368.

Abstract

This editorial provides the intellectual background for a themed issue that argues for a (re)consideration of human geography as a “Geisteswissenschaft”. Engaging with the question of how a geography anchored in the arts and humantities might look like today, it tries to unsettle the kind of “theory-driven”, post-structuralist research that has come to dominate human geography following the “cultural turn”. In proposing a more thorough engagement with the potential of intrepretative, hermeneutic and phenomenological approaches, we conceptualize a “geisteswissenschaftliche” human geography as a much-needed irritation of the social scientific mainstream.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
