The Place Where Waters Murmur: Taught and Learned Andean Space
Garrido Pereira, Marcelo
Review of International Geographical Education Online, v3 n1 p26-55 Spr 2013
This text studies the phenomenon of teaching and learning of space, particularly the one inhabited and produced by those who live in a place of the Andes known as "the place where waters murmur" (Lugar donde murmura el agua or Putre). Notions of Humanistic Geography and Sociology of Social Experience are used to understand education as an essentially space-related experience. Likewise, ethnography is used as a methodological tool for an effective interaction. In this respect, one can state that there is a profound and accelerated process of de-spacing, where space is predominantly considered as a mere pause in the passage of time. Teaching and learning are configured in a spatiality that tends to fragment individual and collective projects of socialization and subjectivation. The informal education of space is strained by the development of a dual model of identification that tears up the unique experience of being a Putre local (putreño).
