Pour une géographie culturelle de la ville : « A passage to India »

Abstract : . Abstract Through a "Passage to India", this paper proposes an approach to a cultural geography of the City. It aims to avoid both cultural essentialism and European ethnocentrism. To understand the signification of City in India, we have to understand Indian spatiality as a construct and in its multiple patterns. That is "to undo our "reality" under the view of other configurations, other syntaxes" (Barthes, 1970). This "Passage to India" can then open up broader perspectives : to consider City and its signification, City as a concept in the light of an "other" pattern.
