The Geography of Representations: A Theoretical Study

Auther : Slimani Al-Arabi / Boubekraoui Al Hassane

The importance of representations lies in its direct relationship with the different components of the geographical space. Yet the geographical producction in many countries and especially in the Arab world does not take into consideration the role of the individual and the collective representations in research. In this way, the geography of representation, as a new trend, relies on the complementarity between the subject and the object in the study of space, and benefits from the realizations of different sciences like sociology, psychology, anthropology, linguistics and so on.The geography of representations is concerned with movement and action, the study of the organization of space and spatial actions resulting from these things. The geogrphical space is a domain in which the perceived, the lived and the represented merge together. It is also loaded with many interactions, symbols. individual and collective values, and it thus transcends the unidimensional Euclidean conception of the geographical phenomena. The admission of representation in the geogrphical discourse since the 50’s has shaken many preconceived concepts altogether in research study and teaching altogether like, space, scale, region, and place...This contribution aims at shedding lights on a geography of much importance called the geography of representations.

Keywords: Represented Space, Imagination, Feographical Space, Signifying, Signified, Subject, Object, Management of Space, Thought, Diffustion.
