    Royal Scottish Geographical Society


Founded in 1884, the RSGS is an educational charity the aims of which are to advance the science of Geography and create a greater understanding of the wider world, in the belief that geographical knowledge makes a significant difference to the way in which we view and shape the world we live in.   These aims are pursued largely through: -

  1. support for geographical research and the teaching of geography;
  2. a community programme of nearly 100 illustrated talks throughout Scotland for both the Society's members and the wider public;
  3. the publication of a journal, newsletter, and occasional books and pamphlets on geographical issues;  and
  4. the provision of a geographical information service drawing on the Society's extensive collections of books, journals, maps, photographs, and archives.

Regional Geography


Contemporary Pluralism in Development Geography, By Kristian Stokke

In its short history, development geography has experienced a series of changes in theoretical foundation, thematic content and methodological approach. The evolution of development geography can be divided into three main phases of hegemonic paradigms; (1) regional geography; (2) modernization theory; and (3) dependency theory (Figure 1). A fourth paradigm, orthodox marxism, was never very influential within development geography although reactivated as analyses of articulation of modes of production in the late 1970s.

    The Rediscovery of Geography


    In the last few years there has been a dramatic increase in research on economic geography -- that is, on where economic activity occurs and why. This surge of interest has been driven to some extent by real-world concerns -- the field has been given a big boost in particular by plans to unify the European market, and the attempt to understand how this deeper integration will work by comparing international economics within Europe with interregional economics within the United States.
