Le fantôme du vieux royaume dans la roumanie contemporaine. pour une géographie des imaginaires du futur

Abstract : The phantom" of the Old Kingdom in modern-day Romania. For a geographic approach to the imaginings of the future. The article offers a second-level reflection based on the results following the microgeographic research experience conducted by the author in the Romanian countryside, 25 years apart. Returning to her work performed around the decollectivisation of the 1990s, as well as to that carried out more recently on the "specter" of the Old Kingdom ("Vechiul Regat") noted on the maps for the modernization of rural houses in 2011, she shows how it has gone from a regional geography highlighted by the historical past of societies to a regional geography concurrent with their visions of the future. The initial research viewpoint is first presented by briefly restoring it with regard to the disciplinary context of French geography at the time. The presentation of new issues of interpretation posed by contemporary regional differences represents the opportunity to present at greater length the two theoretical categories employed to emerge from a historyfavoring trap which would reduce the geographic differences in terms of equipment between regions on their historical development. The article leads to an original hypothesis which renews regional approaches.
