Belonging to this place: A conversation with Yi-Fu Tuan

Belonging to this place: A conversation with Yi-Fu Tuan | Aboriginal histories and contemporary perspectives | Scoop.it

Humanist geography, a movement within the field of human geography (itself a sub-field of geography) arose in the 1970s as a way to counter what humanists saw as a tendency to treat places as mere sites or locations. Instead, a humanist geographer would argue, the places we inhabit have as many personalities as those whose lives have intersected with them. And the stories we tell about places often say as much about who we are, as about where our feet are planted.

Romana Quintel's insight:

An interesting way to view Aboriginal people's link to country.

Anytime a geographer uses the phrase "sense of place," they owe an intellectual debt of gratitude to Yi-Fu Tuan This article is an introduction to the man and his work that is accessible to all audiences.

Céline's curator insight, May 26, 2013 7:25 AM

Le géographe sino américain a joué un rôle décisif dans l'essor du point de vue humaniste dans la nouvelle géographie. C'est l'un des premiers à avoir 

étudié l'expérience que les hommes se font des lieux (à travers plusieurs ouvrages : Topophilia, 1974 ; Espace et Lieu. La perspective de l'expérience, 1977 ; Segmented Worlds and Self, 1982).

Yi-Fu Tuan s'est vu décerné le prix international de géographie Vautrin Lud 2012, considéré comme le «prix Nobel de géographie». Ce prix lui a été remis de la 23e édition du Festival international de géographie (FIG) de Saint-Dié-des-Vosges.

 

En 2002, Tuan dit de sa géographie humaniste qu’elle «doit attirer celui qui a l’esprit solide et se montre idéaliste, car elle repose en définitive sur la croyance que nous, les hommes, avons à faire face aux faits les plus déplaisants, et parvenir dans le même temps à faire quelque chose à leur sujet, sans désespérer».

Pour le géographe Paul Claval, il est «une personnalité hors du commun, un être attachant» auteur d’une «œuvre inclassable tant elle est originale par sa forme et son contenu» (revue «la Géographie»).
