La diffusion de la "géographie théorique et quantitative" en France : quel modèle de diffusion spatiale ?

Abstract : The spread of “theoretical and quantitative” geography in France: which model of spatial diffusion?The localization of research centers in theoretical and quantitative geography is highly asymmetrical. This subfield is strongly rooted in France’s south-east whereas it is almost nonexistent in outh-western universities. Which spatial diffusion processes produced this configuration ? This paper offers an original bias by which to study the spatial diffusion of a scientific movement. Using the Répertoire des géographes français, a systematic directory of geographers published every four years from 1969 to 2007, we first implemented a generic method to describe the spatial and temporal spread of keywords. This in turn established that this spatial asymmetry is the result of a hierarchical diffusion process.
