  • Contradicciones del culto a Añá: un espacio de exclusión
           femenina religiosa

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: El Complejo religioso Osha-Ifá—religión que articula la Regla de Osha y la Regla de Ifá para brindar culto a los orishas, o deidades de origen africano, en Cuba—incluye, de manera explícita, la función de cada orisha, los roles de hombres y mujeres en la religión, cómo adorar a las deidades y sus numerosos cultos. Sin embargo, prevalecen conflictos entre mitos y ritos, la práctica religiosa y la palabra escrita en los odduns—tratados, letras y mensajes de los orishas para comunicar— hasta la objeción. Uno de los ritos que mejor representa estas contradicciones se devela en el culto a Añá y su vínculo con las mujeres religiosas; conflicto entendido, por pocos, como exclusión femenina y, por la gran mayoría, una ...

  • Situating in Place Indigenous Engagements in Capitalist Market Relations

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: With the expansion of capitalism and an agrarian vision of development held by successive Peruvian governments, geographical relations in the Peruvian Amazon have changed significantly since the mid-twentieth century (Barclay et al., 1991). The main changes involve domestic colonization, road construction, deforestation, and the creation of state-demarcated native communities, all of which have affected Indigenous peoples who live off the forest resources, including their patterns of settlement (Barclay et al., 1991; Red Amazónica de Información Socioambiental Georreferenciada [RAISG],). These changes have facilitated the conditions for capital circulation and the spread of neoliberalism, particularly in areas of ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: La producción de mapeos participativos y la cartografía en general tiene en la actualidad un lugar central en la agenda de una diversidad de actores e instituciones que incluyen a movimientos sociales, ONGs y organismos estatales y que persiguen distintas finalidades. Como ya ha sido señalado, la confección de mapeos participativos no se restringe a la incorporación mecánica de una nueva herramienta por parte de estos actores, sino que dichos dispositivos suelen ser parte de procesos más amplios y de carácter fundamentalmente político (Wood, 1992; Crampton, 2001; Kitchin & Dodge, 2007). Por medio de su implementación los actores sociales en juego forjan, modelan y/o disputan identidades sociales y políticas y ... Read More

  • Socioeconomic Determinants of Homegardening in the Southeast of Mexico: An
           Endowments-Based Livelihoods Framework

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: The Yucatán region, in the southeast of Mexico, has a rich cultural and biological heritage and diversity. The biological diversity of the region has interacted and co-evolved with its cultural richness over thousands of years, where people have transformed entire landscapes and domesticated a wide array of plant and animal species (Bellon et al., 2009; Mariaca Méndez, 2012; Moreno-Calles et al., 2014).Traditional agroforestry systems, such as homegardens, are emblematic examples of biocultural management and conservation (Moreno-Calles et al., 2014; Moreno-Calles et al., 2016; Pietersen et al., 2018). In Yucatán, homegardens are characterized as small-scale agroforestry systems, formed by plants and animals, and ... Read More

  • The Pastoral City-State: A Metaphor for the Geography of Uruguay

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Metaphors are a powerful heuristic to help interpret the particularities of place. To familiarize readers with Uruguay and advance the value of metaphors in geography, in this article I coin the term “pastoral city-state.” As a historical-geographical construct, the pastoral city-state is a metaphor for the extreme primacy of Uruguay’s capital Montevideo in a territory dominated by extensive livestock raising. Commentators have pointed to Uruguay having city-state characteristics (e.g., Taylor, 1963), and have discussed the consequences of the predominance of pastoral land uses (e.g., Finch, 1971), but no one has developed a concept that succinctly combines the two in a synthetic reading of the country’s historical ...

  • Transcultural Place-Making in Little Havana

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Little Havana in Miami, Florida is often perceived as a relatively homogenous Cuban-American enclave. A large number of Cuban immigrants settled in Miami during the late 1950s and through the early 1960s, during the Cuban Revolution. Over time, the demographic make-up of Little Havana changed, and so did the material landscape. Miami as a whole, and Little Havana specifically, has seen a large influx of Latin immigrants from Central America, South America, and the Caribbean since the 1990s, and their numbers have been increasing each year. Sociologist Guillermo Grenier stated: “Little Havana could most accurately be described as a multi-ethnic Latino neighborhood where the historic demographic dominance of one ... Read More

  • Geographical Implications of Brazil’s Emerging Green Hydrogen Sector

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Converting renewable power into exportable green hydrogen for industrial use and power generation has become a leading technology in decarbonization processes. Electrolyzers powered by hydro, solar, or wind split water into hydrogen and oxygen, providing “energy storage in chemical bonds” (Luna et al., 2019, p. 2). Green hydrogen is powered by renewable or green sources, unlike gray hydrogen, which comes from natural gas, brown hydrogen from coal, and blue hydrogen from natural gas with CO2 capture and storage. The electrochemical process for splitting water through electrolyzers has been known for several decades, but the industrial scale-up is occurring rapidly. Described as “bottling renewables” (Nature Energy ... Read More

           Nancy Hiemstra (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Detaining and deporting suspected unauthorized immigrants has become increasingly common, politically popular, and profitable in the United States. The practice predates Trump’s policies by decades, even though his administration’s worst practices drew heightened attention. This timely book by geographer Nancy Hiemstra offers an insightful and important understanding of the detention/deportation system in the United States. She focuses on the drivers and consequences of the system, asking how it developed and what is accomplished by the increasing reliance on detention and deportation as part of immigration enforcement. Hiemstra uses a transnational ethnography of policy to unearth the hidden truths that undergird ... Read More

  • Landscapes of Inequity: Environmental Justice in the Andes-Amazon Region
           ed. by Nicholas A. Robins and Barbara J. Fraser (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: For those captivated by the andes-Amazon region’s biological and cultural diversity and are alarmed by multiple threats posed by extractive activities and infrastructure projects to its people and landscapes, this venerable volume constitutes an essential addition. Since Francisco Pizzaro’s conquest of Peru and Francisco de Orellana’s first descent of the Amazon from Quito, the region has endured successive waves of boom-and-bust cycles. Colonial governments and modern states attracted capital and promoted extraction of natural resources and production of commodities, while wealth generated was (and is) removed from the places of extraction and production to regional elites, far away capitals, and financial centers ...

  • The Adventures of Alexander von Humboldt by Andrea Wulf (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This work treating humboldtian scientific exploration, or adventuring, stems from a rich research collaboration between Andrea Wulf, the author of a renowned biography of Alexander von Humboldt, and Lillian Melcher, a graduate of the Parsons School of Design, who undertook the graphic work. The format is that of a comic book and the work is classified as graphic nonfiction, a challenging category in classification. While other authorities are treated, mainly important scientific ones, the book is structured above all around the journey made by Humboldt with his French collaborator and assistant Aimé Bonpland to the Americas between 1799 and 1804. But since the dialogs between these two figures are imagined ones ... Read More

      Abstract: Spawned from an interdisciplinary symposium held in 2013, this book examines the territorial claims, scientific and artistic methodologies, and aesthetic interpretations behind the exploration of exotic places from the North Pole to the far reaches of South America. Contested and imagined spaces captured the world’s imagination through cartography, sketches, photographs, and travelogues in the nineteenth century. In this volume, art historians, a geographer, curators, and literary scholars pen eleven chapters that are parsed into three sections: Seeing and Not Seeing; Lines and Tracings; and Art and the Expeditionary Impulse.

  • Decolonial Feminisms, Power and Place: Sentipensando with Rural Women in
           Colombia by Laura Rodríguez Castro (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: Decolonial feminisms, power and place is a formidable illustration of Laura Rodríguez Castro’s commitment to decolonial praxis in research. “Feeling-thinking” alongside women in Colombia’s countryside, Castro charts rural territorial struggles and strategies of resistance in the context of on-going neoliberal and colonial violence. In this book, women’s voices are not included as supporting evidence to illustrate some broad theoretical claim; instead critique and decolonial praxis are articulated through the words and practices of rural women themselves. In dialogue with rural women, the book addresses two main projects: the coloniality of gender—as coined from María Lugones’ extension of Aníbal Quijano and Walter ... Read More

  • Imperial Metropolis: Los Angeles, Mexico, and the Borderlands of American
           Empire, 1865–1941 by Jessica M. Kim (review)

      Abstract: The publishing parentage of historian Jessica M. Kim’s book is as varied as the topic examined. A consortium forged by the David J. Weber Series in New Borderland History at Southern Methodist University, and the University of North Carolina’s already well established Latin American focus, birthed this interdisciplinary book. Already acclaimed with the Kenneth Jackson Award awarded by the Urban History Association, the work should interest students of economic, cultural, urban and regional geography. It dives headfirst into the much-used notion of core-periphery by anchoring the discussion on how Los Angeles’ growth in the post-Civil War Era, extending through the Porfiriato Era (1876–1911), and up to the onset of ...

      Abstract: This edited, collaborative volume draws attention to the role of Latin Americans in contributing to scientific knowledge and methods worldwide. It also deals with the role of science in shaping Latin American discourse and perceptions. With fifteen contributing authors from North America, Latin America, and Europe, the volume grew out of series of conferences. While this volume addresses a variety of scientific approaches in the sciences and social sciences, the authors all take humanistic approaches in the discussions. The humanities, including language, literature, and history, have increasingly provided valuable insights on the relationships between science, society, and creative work. This book adds ...

      Abstract: What is governance, and how should local, state, and national governments and institutions govern a border region' Binational Commons is an edited volume that results from a workshop in 2016 that brought together scholars from multiple disciplines to examine the complexities of governance of the U.S.-Mexico border region. It seeks to define what governance is, and to identify the formal and informal institutions at the national, regional, and local level that create and implement policies that govern this region. The book has twelve chapters divided into two parts, as well as an introduction and conclusion. The first part consists of three chapters that provide a framework for institutional development along the ... Read More

           Nazarea and Terese V. Gagnon (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: This edited book represents the latest efforts of anthropologists to understand how a wide variety of displacements (war, migration, precarity, late capitalist modernity and so on) lead people to re-engage with plant life in ways that create meaning and sustain biodiversity. The book offers a series of examinations into how quotidian practices of gardening, seed saving, and cooking serve as ways to restore a sense of social and cultural continuity, and to connect the lost past with newly found lives and places.The introductory chapter, written by the editors Virginia D. Nazarea and Terese V. Gagnon, offers a beautifully written overview of the approach. They remind us that biodiversity “thrives best in marginal ... Read More

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: São paulo, south america’s largest industrial mega-city, underwent rapid population, industrial, and financial growth between 1891 and 1930. The Old Republic period started with a new constitution and the abolition of slavery and was characterized by oligarchical rule alternating between political elites from São Paulo and Minas Gerais states, ending in Getúlio Vargas’s coup in 1930, with the First World War serving as an “inflection point for the working class” (p. 5). During the Old Republic, approximately 2.25 million immigrants arrived in the state of São Paulo, mainly from Italy, Spain, and Portugal. Nearly 60% of arrivals were under state-subsidized programs. São Paulo’s population was 65,000 in 1890, and ... Read More

  • Colonial Debts: The Case of Puerto Rico by Rocío Zambrana (review)

    • Free pre-print version: Loading...

      Abstract: In the social sciences, puerto rico has traditionally been treated as a case study, a place for data extraction, not theory-making. Researchers come with ready-made theoretical frameworks, often drawn from European and North American intellectual traditions, to collect data on people, institutions, and sites across Puerto Rico in order to prove what they already knew. Puerto Rico is often thought about, yet researchers seldom think with Puerto Rico and its people. Rocío Zambrana breaks with that academic colonial tradition, embracing instead the motto of the Caribbean Philosophical Association: “shifting the geography of reason”. In Colonial Debts, Zambrana theorizes with Puerto Rico and the diaspora to account for ... Read More
