  • Perspektivenwechsel der Politischen Ökologie – Back to the
           roots!

    • Abstract: Perspektivenwechsel der Politischen Ökologie – Back to the roots!
      Helmut J. Geist
      Geogr. Helv., 77, 511–522, https://doi.org/10.5194/gh-77-511-2022, 2022
      Political ecology emerged half a century ago and was introduced in German speaking countries twenty years later. The article evaluates perspectives (views, arguments, positions) of the first generation of research and compares them with second generation research. It is argued that old and new approaches are to be blamed for their ambivalence towards policy. With a focus on emancipatory perspectives, a repositioning is suggested on radical geography roots.

    • Abstract: Mortalität aus kritischer Perspektive sehen – Plädoyer für eine kritische Diskussion struktureller Einflüsse auf die Sterblichkeit
      Mathias Siedhoff
      Geogr. Helv., 77, 505–510, https://doi.org/10.5194/gh-77-505-2022, 2022
      With this contribution (which is designed as a positioning), the author pleads for a more consistent consideration of structural influences in the discussion of mortality in (textbook) population geography, and for a critical discussion of these influences. He refers to various conceptions that already have fixed places in human geography – but not in population geography – and that offer starting points for corresponding discussions.

      While a broad debate on carceral geographies has been part of human geography and related disciplines in English-speaking academia, there are only scarce publications among German-speaking geographers. This special issue aims at bringing different researchers and their rich and diverse research insights in the carceral field into a dialogue.

  • A theory for the “Anglo-Saxon mind”: Ellen Churchill Semple's
           reinterpretation of Friedrich Ratzel's Anthropogeographie

    • Abstract: A theory for the “Anglo-Saxon mind”: Ellen Churchill Semple's reinterpretation of Friedrich Ratzel's Anthropogeographie
      Ian Klinke
      Geogr. Helv., 77, 467–478, https://doi.org/10.5194/gh-77-467-2022, 2022
      This paper examines the intellectual relationship between the influential American geographer Ellen Churchill Semple and her professor, the German geographer Friedrich Ratzel. Semple clearly developed her own theory of anthropogeography from a reading of Ratzel. But she did so in a political context, i.e., post-slavery North America. Her theory clearly expresses that context and her dissatisfaction with particular elements in Ratzel's corpus.

      In (Anthropo-)Geography, especially in the Anthropocene, the question of what constitutes the human is of utmost interest. In the process, this human is often strangely assumed to be self-evident, almost (self-)explanatory. In the sense of a German Theory, we want to encourage to pose these question on the human anew with Helmuth Plessner and to point out new possible answers. Otherwise these questions are in danger of withering away into a Minimal Anthropology.

      This paper assesses peoples' knowledge and perceptions of the invasive palm (Trachycarpus fortunei) in Ticino, Switzerland. Such information is important for guiding decision-making and management planning. In general, although the palm induces positive perceptions in most respondents, the majority of people realise the threat that invasions pose to the region. Therefore, most respondents supported the regulations and management for this popular ornamental plant.

  • Between climates of fear and blind optimism: the affective role of

    • Abstract: Between climates of fear and blind optimism: the affective role of emotions for climate (in)action
      Lena Maria Schlegel
      Geogr. Helv., 77, 421–431, https://doi.org/10.5194/gh-77-421-2022, 2022
      Emotions play an underestimated role for how humans make meaning about their place in the world and respond to problems. What is most puzzling about climate inaction is that it occurs in spite of the overwhelming knowledge about the problem at stake. By looking at how emotions connect knowledge and action in how humans respond to environmental problems, we can better understand how climate inaction can persist and how transformative change might be enabled.

      Geogr. Helv., 77, 405–416, https://doi.org/10.5194/gh-77-405-2022, 2022
      This article reviews concepts for understanding how urban housing policies are mobilized in between cities and localized in particular contexts. The article brings geographical understandings of local knowledge, translation, and topological thinking into conversation with the contemporary mobilities turn in housing studies. The article offers a nuanced conceptualization of the movement of housing policies in between cities and enhances future empirical studies on urban housing policy.

      In den letzten Jahren hat die Wissenschaft vermehrt das "Ende der Natur" proklamiert. Im Anthropozän verliert die Natur ihre Existenz als Gegenpol zur menschlichen Welt, was zu tiefgreifenden Verunsicherungen der Subjekte führt. Im Gegensatz hierzu zeigen wir auf, dass die Natur - als phantastischer Raum jenseits des Alltags - auch unter heute noch sicherheitsstiftend auf Subjekte wirkt und adressieren hierbei auch die Ambivalenzen und Probleme, die mit dieser Persistenz der Natur einhergehen.

      Population development of German municipalities is characterised by pronounced regional disparities. In recent years, we have witnessed population growth in most large cities and their suburban hinterlands and shrinkage in structurally weak rural areas. We shed new light on the patterns, trends and drivers of population development between 1990 and 2019. Using spatial autocorrelation and hot-spot–cold-spot analysis, we identify short- and long-term population trajectories.

      This article questions an essentialist view of modern water, finding new relevance regarding models of blended finance that rely on transparent data of digital systems to close the financing gap in water provision. Ethnographically tracing the implementation of pay-as-you-go (PAYGo) water dispensers in two settings in Kenya, I show that the transparent performance data form part of the enactment of only one water reality amidst multiple waters in relation to their sociotechnical environments.

      The article suggests that assemblage theory offers a fruitful approach to study territorializing and de-territorializing tendencies of far-right movements given its relational approach to discourses, materialities and affects. It redirects attention to the geographies of election battles, helps to interrogate the mediated geopolitics of far-right movements, and allows examining the territorialization of discourses and affects by considering differentiating geographies of fear and anger.
