Lis Pankl GEOG 820 Annotated Bibliography--Humanistic /Critical Geography Antonsich, Marco. (2010). Meanings of place and aspects of the Self: an interdisciplinary and empirical account. GeoJournal 75: 119-132. In this article, Marco Antonsich tackles the role of the Self within the geographic realm. Antonsich contends that although humanistic geographers made great strides toward the investigation of the individual within a phenomenological spectrum, the idea of the Self has been largely ignored in recent scholarship. Antonsich cites the proliferation of social theory in geographic studies as one reason for this decline of the intimate and the personal. However, Antonsich claims that the inclusion of political, economic, and cultural forces do not preclude a focus on the Self. To demonstrate his point, Antonsich discusses his empirical study of “the ways in which meanings of place intervene in the construction of the Self, both at a personal and social level” (120). Antonsich’s study consists of interviews and focus groups of ordinary people living in Western Europe. Antonsich’s study is unique in that it takes humanistic concerns and couples them with objectivist research strategies. Arreola, Daniel D. (2010). Personality, geographical art, and lessons from Sauer’s Mexico. The Geographical Review 100(3): 291-294. Arreola points to the work of Carl Sauer, specifically Sauer’s essay “The Personality of Mexico,” as an excellent example of the humanistic voice within the dominating paradigm of systems science human geography. From Sauer’s essay, Arreola lifts the terms “geographical art”; “curiosity”; and “interpretation” as key terms that drew him to examining the personality of a landscape. For Arreola, Sauer’s work opened up an alternative approach to the data accumulation

and manipulation that defines the systems science that David Harvey describes in his seminal work Explanation in Geography (1969). In his discussion of the passion that led him to pursue geography as a profession, Arreola makes reference to the inspiring work and legacy of Edward Relph who, willing, gave immense power by proclaiming “the philosophies and methods I use seemed to choose me” (292). Arreola draws heavily from Sauer’s emphasis on historical contextualizing in order to understand the complex personalities of places. Arreola ends his article by calling geographers to be humanists, “to produce works that are individual creations and that contribute to a fuller and richer appreciation of people and place” (293). Blake, Kevin S. (1995). Zane Grey and images of the American West. The Geographical Review 85(2): 202-216. Kevin Blake examines the creation of western imagery in the popular novels of Zane Grey. Blake contends that Grey did not merely represent the American West in his novels, but rather helped to shape the dominant perceptions of the West in American culture. Although Blake’s focus in the article is the power of literature to shape place imagery, he also notes that the American West was shaped by several other representative sources, including: newspapers, paintings and, in more recent times, film and television. According to Blake, one of Grey’s most significant contributions was providing unifying images to the vast region of the American West. In particular, Grey’s obsession with the Colorado Plateau created a strong image of the quintessential West in the imaginations of his readers, and later viewers of the films his stories were connected with. Blake asserts that Grey’s creation of iconic Western imagery for the public created a sense of both timelessness and nostalgia for the unique landscape. According to Blake, without the novels of Zane Grey the image of the American West in the popular imagination would be a very different and a much fainter one.
