Abstract

Mickey Dewar made a profound contribution to the history of the Northern Territory, which she performed across many genres. She produced high‑quality, memorable and multi-sensory histories, including the Cyclone Tracy exhibition at the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory and the reinterpretation of Fannie Bay Gaol. Informed by a great love of books, her passion for history was infectious. As well as offering three original chapters that appraise her work, this edited volume republishes her first book, In Search of the Never-Never. In Dewar’s comprehensive and incisive appraisal of the literature of the Northern Territory, she provides brilliant, often amusing insights into the ever-changing representations of a region that has featured so large in the Australian popular imagination.&#xD;

Abstract

Rééditer Pour une géographie du pouvoir près de quarante ans après sa publication initiale en 1980 constitue une forme de manifeste, tant la réception de ce livre a été contrastée : décrié par ses pairs au moment de sa sortie, reconnu aujourd’hui par Claude Raffestin lui-même comme « hétérodoxe », il s’agit d’un ouvrage qui continue de marquer durablement ses lecteurs. S’il reste d’une actualité si vive aujourd’hui, c’est parce qu’il aurait pu s’intituler Pour une géographie du territoire, notion centrale dans la géographie contemporaine. Il définit en effet la territorialité comme médiation spatiale des rapports sociaux, un apport majeur pour toutes les sciences sociales. Proposant de mettre en avant l’espace d’autonomie qui existe dans la perception et la construction d’une relation de pouvoir, l’ouvrage exprime une géographie engagée qui pose les bases de la géopolitique critique. Par la centralité de son analyse relationnelle, son examen des ressources et des flux, il ouvre des pistes vers une écologie politique alors inédite.

Abstract

This book represents the first consolidated history of vocational education and training in the Northern Territory. Not only does the story present a chronological account of events, people and institutions, it also offers an explanation of how the system actually works and this has application well beyond the Territory. The mix of historical accounting and operational analysis comes from a unique perspective. It is proposed that the best way to understand the behaviour of the government ministers who have responsibility for vocational training is to compare their decisions and actions with those of wealthy philanthropists.

Abstract

Western Arnhem Land, in the Top End of Australia’s Northern Territory, has a rich archaeological landscape, ethnographic record and body of rock art that displays an astonishing array of imagery on shelter walls and ceilings. While the archaeology goes back to the earliest period of Aboriginal occupation of the continent, the rock art represents some of the richest, most diverse and visually most impressive regional assemblages anywhere in the world. To better understand this multi-dimensional cultural record, The Archaeology of Rock Art in Western Arnhem Land, Australia focuses on the nature and antiquity of the region’s rock art as revealed by archaeological surveys and excavations, and the application of novel analytical methods. This volume also presents new findings by which to rethink how Aboriginal peoples have socially engaged in and with places across western Arnhem Land, from the north to the south, from the plains to the spectacular rocky landscapes of the plateau. The dynamic nature of Arnhem Land rock art is explored and articulated in innovative ways that shed new light on the region’s deep time Aboriginal history.

Abstract

Esta obra busca comprender las construcciones de sentidos sociales del espacio denominado Araucanía-Norpatagonia. Y es importante destacar que los sentidos no son unívocos. En este caso, la pluralidad de lo territorial se intuye en las diferentes perspectivas de acercamiento, mostrando tanto la polisemia como las tensiones detrás de conceptos tales como espacio, frontera o representación.Para ello, los investigadores y cientistas sociales que escriben este volumen, asumen el debate centro-periferia entendiendo que la particular mirada desarrollada desde un territorio de integración tardía, como es la Patagonia tanto en Argentina como en Chile, construye una mirada epistemológica necesaria y singular.Así, la Patagonia adopta un carácter plural, las naciones se diversifican y los sentidos y prácticas de lo estatal se complejizan. Además, las territorialidades y las subjetividades forman parte de los desafíos que se abordan, reconociéndose como abiertos.

Abstract

Este libro publica una serie de estudios transfronterizos argentino-chilenos y articula trabajos conjuntos de investigadores de ambos lados de la cordillera de la Patagonia. El camino recorrido por las investigaciones atraviesa tres ejes: circuitos, relaciones y representaciones de prácticas políticas y económicas; territorios, itinerarios y expresiones materiales; prácticas culturales y sociales en el marco de la interculturalidad. Los textos fueron puestos a consideración de distintos referentes académicos especializados y buscan constituir una conversación provocadora y provechosa. Por otra parte, pretenden consolidar el imaginario de un territorio común en el tiempo y el espacio, a través de la cordillera como eje integrador y no como límite político nacional.

Abstract

Este libro reconstruye la historia de la instalación de la Estación Experimental del Instituto Nacional de Tecnología Agropecuaria en San Carlos de Bariloche, desde la hipótesis de que se trató de uno de los modos de establecimiento del Estado nacional en el espacio patagónico. El INTA es analizado como engranaje del paradigma desarrollista y pieza central de la política nacional de ciencia y tecnología para ordenar el territorio y traducir los planes regionales impulsados por el Estado en riqueza económica. Este libro evalúa el impacto de este proceso en los dinamismos productivos, sociales y políticos del territorio.

Abstract

Considered as one of the main factors in erosion of the biodiversity, land take describes the global reduction in the proportion of land allocated to farming and forestry or to natural spaces. This work identifies the decisive economic and social factors in land take and its impact on the environment and agriculture. It suggests levers of action likely to limit its development and its negative effects. &#xD;
