HISTORICAL GEOGRAPHIC THEORY AND KNOLEDGE
The course will analyze the main methodologies of historical research, the historiographic theories and the sources necessary to construct the historical narrative. During the lessons the concept of archive will be explained and the methods of access to the sources will be described
The course aims to provide the main theoretical references and foundations of human geography and to illustrate some case studies for a reading of the territory in space / time.
Through a reflection on the scientific status of the discipline in its relations with other historical-social disciplines, the course aims to promote the acquisition of a critical awareness of the analytical categories used by historical knowledge.
The course aims to present the main conceptual categories related to space (territory, territorialization, place, region, etc.) as well as to the relationship between man and the environment (natural and cultural) over time.
