TL;DR: In this paper, the authors discute the uso del termino "desterritorializacion" in Ciencias Sociales and las concepciones del territorio, generalmente implicitas, relacionadas with the same.
Abstract: El presente articulo discute el uso del termino “desterritorializacion” en las Ciencias Sociales y las concepciones del territorio, generalmente implicitas, relacionadas con el mismo. Se cuestionan las dicotomias con las que suele abordarse el territorio y se propone trabajar la desterritorializacion, no solo en el sentido generico de destruccion o abandono de un territorio, sino tambien en el sentido de precarizacion territorial de los grupos subalternos. En general, lo que los grupos hegemonicos consideran como desterritorializacion, representa en realidad la vivencia de una multerritorialidad.

TL;DR: A desterritorializacao deve ser enfatizada em seu sentido social, ligada a crescente dinâmica de exclusao socio-espacial a que denominamos "aglomerados humanos da exclusao" as mentioned in this paper.
Abstract: Um dos problemas dos discursos sobre a desterritorializacao, amplamente difundidos nas Ciencias Sociais na ultima decada, e que com frequencia eles nao fazem referencia ao conceito de territorio ao qual se referem. No lugar de desterritorializacao, na verdade o que temos hoje e um novo tipo de apropriacao e dominacao do espaco atraves de territorios-rede onde podemos ter acesso a uma multiplicidade de territorios, configurando outro(s). A desterritorializacao deve ser enfatizada em seu sentido social, ligada a crescente dinâmica de exclusao socio-espacial a que denominamos "aglomerados humanos da exclusao".

TL;DR: Este trabalho e uma introducao ao verificação das novas territorialidades emergentes emergente neste final de seculo, epoca que, genericamente, convencionou-se denominar de globalizacao.
Abstract: Este trabalho e uma introducao ao estudo das novas territorialidades emergentes neste final de seculo, epoca que tantas vezes e definida como aquela mareada por um processo que, genericamente, convencionou-se denominar de globalizacao. Esboca-se uma sintese das principais linhas de interpretacao ainda hoje vigentes sobre este conceito (ou nocao), incluindo a proposta para uma caracterizacao das multiplas faces do territorio, verificando como se manifestam novas territorialidades como o territorio-mundo no âmbito dos processos de globalizacao/fragmentacao.

TL;DR: In this article, the authors explore the concepts involved in the term "territorio", the nature of its uses and the interpretations given to it by different user groups in Latin America and find that despite its ubiquitous nature, polysemic use and its hybrid conceptual construction, the concept is a specific Latin American concept that can shed light on power relationships in space, triggered by the confrontation between global forces on the one hand and local, place-based, or territorially anchored groups on the other.
Abstract: This article explores the concepts involved in the term territorio , the nature of its uses and the interpretations given to it by different user groups in Latin America. In so doing, the authors find that despite its ubiquitous nature, polysemic use and its hybrid conceptual construction, territorio is a specific Latin American concept that can shed light on power relationships in space, triggered by the confrontation between global forces on the one hand and local, place-based, or “territorially anchored” groups on the other. The article unfolds across two sections. The first summarizes diverse conceptualizations of space, power, and locality, which are understood to be core elements of territorio, particularly when these are linked through actions, demands, or claims of a collective. The second section approaches the thematic contexts in which territorio and its associated concepts are used: as spatial entities of jurisdictional administration, appropriation by indigenous, afro and peasant communities, political demands and social movements, control-dispossession and reconstruction, spatial entities of assets, and place-based development. We argue that an understanding of the multiple uses and interpretations of territory in Latin America does not just reveal the uniquely nuanced ways of thinking about geography in the region, but it also raises questions over the possibility of a multiple construction of key geographical concepts. Resumen: Este articulo explora los conceptos envueltos en el termino territorio , la naturaleza de los usos del mismo y las interpretaciones dadas por distintos grupos de usuarios del termino en America Latina. Sostenemos que, a pesar de su naturaleza ubicua, su uso polisemico y la hibridez de su construccion conceptual, territorio es un termino especifico latinoamericano, que puede contribuir al analisis de las relaciones de poder en el espacio, activadas por la confrontacion entre fuerzas globales, por un lado, y grupos con “anclaje territorial”, por el otro. El articulo presenta dos secciones. En la primera se explican diversas aproximaciones a los conceptos de espacio, poder y localidad, que son elementos centrales para el entendimiento de territorio, particularmente cuando estos estan conectados a traves de acciones, demandas o reclamos de un colectivo. La segunda seccion aborda los contextos tematicos en los cuales territorio y sus conceptos relacionados son usados: como entidades espaciales de administracion jurisdiccional, apropiacion por grupos indigenas, afros y campesinos, demandas politicas y movimientos sociales, control-desposesion y reconstruccion, como unidades espaciales de recursos y desarrollo basado-en el lugar (o desarrollo territorial). Creemos que el entendimiento de los multiples usos e interpretaciones de “territorio” en America Latina no solo revela los distintivos matices del pensamiento geografico en la region, sino tambien, plantea cuestiones sobre la posibilidad de una construccion multiple de conceptos geograficos fundamentales.

TL;DR: In this paper, the relational and contested nature of territories and territorial praxis is examined in Latin America, and the centrality of power to territory is explored, with a latent attachment to sovereignty which marginalize counter-hegemonic territorial politics.
Abstract: Territories in contestation: relational power in Latin America. Territory, Politics, Governance. Situated in geography’s recent territorial (re)turn, and drawing on Latin American theory and research, this paper examines the relational and contested nature of territories and territorial praxis. Engaging with contemporary literatures, we note the centrality of power to territory. However, as we explore in this paper, many analyses of power are too simplistic, with a latent attachment to sovereignty which can marginalize counter-hegemonic territorial politics. To combat this we explore two conceptions of power, as found in open and autonomist Marxism – poder (understood as power over) and potencia (understood as power to) – and how they function territorially. While such an understanding of power frames the complex production of territories, it is important to also reflect on how movements intervene in producing their own territories. Accordingly, the paper examines the territorial struggles of the ...

TL;DR: In this article, the authors describe and analyze discourses regarding environmental governance held among key actors in a region of expanding high-input, high-output agriculture, highlighting major differences and agreements among social perspectives, in addition to the arguments used to justify claims.
Abstract: This article describes and analyzes discourses regarding environmental governance held among key actors in a region of expanding high-input, high-output agriculture. Q-method, an intensive (small n) and quantitative technique in which n tests are measured by m individuals, was used to determine four empirically significant social perspectives: critical environmentalism, agri-environmentalism, private environmentalism, and statist environmentalism. The article highlights major differences and agreements among social perspectives, in addition to the arguments used to justify claims. These findings help fill a knowledge gap in the literature on governance debates between farmers and environmentalists; moreover, the findings contribute to a concern in the literature regarding the role of discourses in producing policy solutions to environmental governance problems. The article also supports continued use of Q-method in human geography, suggesting the value of Q as a research ends and means, particularly when ...
