  • Applying Friedrich Ratzel's political and biogeography to the debate on
           natural borders in the Italian context (1880–1920)

      The paper examines the contribution of Italian academic geography to the processes of nation-building between ca. 1880–1920, especially in defining the national space and its boundaries. Italian geographers were particularly influenced by new approaches introduced by German scholars such as Friedrich Ratzel. Scientific theories and representations proved highly significant in influencing the political debate.

      The relevance of the outbreak of the First and Second World Wars to the posthumous reception of Ratzel's work cannot be overestimated; Kjellen in particular was one of the main protagonists of Ratzel's revival. Kjellen and Schmitt appropriated and transformed Ratzel's concepts for their research aims, in order to highlight a new turning point in the political and juridical sciences and in politics. As a consequence, their Ratzel was oriented toward militant aims.

      Lilith Kuhn
      Geogr. Helv., 78, 15–27, https://doi.org/10.5194/gh-78-15-2023, 2023
      This article examines a collaborative theatre project on the climate crisis from an autoethnographic perspective. The collaboration of scientists and artists created affective atmospheres that opened up spaces for reflection on scientific practice in the context of posthumanist theories: To what extend do we perceive our material environment as powerful' How are bodies and affects entangled in knowledge production' In what ways we still reproduce dualisms and fixed identities'

      Wir untersuchen wie BürgerInneninitiativen im Kontext emotionalisierter Umweltwahrnehmungen Rhetoriken von Nähe nutzen, um sichere Fahrradinfrastruktur einzufordern. Wir zeigen durch Bild- und Sprachanalysen wie Anliegen von Sicherheit und Lebensqualität in einer Sprache der Nähe artikuliert werden. Nahes wird so zum Eigenen und Selbstbestimmten. Diese Raumaneignungen markieren Fahrraddemonstrationen als relevante Protestform, die Emotionen transformieren und Umweltwahrnehmungen intensivieren.

  • Dal Lebensraum allo spazio vitale – la ricezione politica del pensiero

    • Abstract: Dal Lebensraum allo spazio vitale – la ricezione politica del pensiero di Ratzel in Italia, 1900–1943

      Geogr. Helv., 77, 547–558, https://doi.org/10.5194/gh-77-547-2022, 2022
      The paper explores the reception and re-elaboration of Friedrich Ratzel's political geography in Italy from the beginning of the 20th century to the Second World War, by focusing on the concept of spazio vitale (living space) and its use by fascist intellectuals and propagandists, who promoted expansionism and the trilateral collaboration with Germany and Japan.

      We modelled potential regional energy landscapes that can be derived from the two-degree target and visualised them based on Geographical Information Systems by using five scenarios involving changes to the planning guidelines. The analyses reveal that the development of a carbon-neutral energy system is possible. Yet the potential spatial patterns of renewable energies differ considerably.

    • 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.

      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.

      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.

      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.
