Europe, what’s next? Changing geographies and geographies of change
What is the destiny of continents in an era of globalization? And what is the future for Europe? The answer to these questions is intertwined and depends upon what the destiny of geography is to be. Geography has been called upon to question the validity of the concepts and logics inherited from modernity. In times of crisis, geographical thought has to respond to realities which are shifting not only in form but also in nature. For the first time in the history of humanity we fully realize that we must conceptualize the world as a sphere, a globe which functions as a singular unit, a unique, complex system.
This brings about a need to re-assess, with reference to the actual state of affairs in the European continent, the entire project of modernity as well as to rethink the elements through which we describe it: states, boundaries, urban systems, landscapes, regions. The challenge - and the hope - is to envision a new representation which is already forming. In doing so, we must look back and reflect upon the most archaic concept we can imagine: the Nomos of the Earth, the nature of relations between land and sea.
