Kritikai geográfusok (szerkesztés alatt!)

Ez az oldal azt a tájékoztató célt szolgálja, hogy bemutasson a magyar közönség számára néhány, a nemzetközi szakirodalomban gyakran hivatkozott (és nagyhatású), rendkívül inspiratív szerzőt, akik kritikai geográfusoknak tartják magukat. Szeretnénk persze elkerülni a részrehajló kanonizálás ártalmait, és ez a "lista" nem jelenti azt, hogy egyedül ők lennének kritikai geográfusok, ezért igyekszünk a későbbiekben minél több szerzőt megemlíteni. Fontos továbbá, hogy a "kritikai" szerzők között jelentős különbségek vannak, amelyekkel itt nem célunk foglalkozni (bármiféle csoportosítás "kompartmentalizáló" és meglehetősen önkényes lenne), mivel az alábbi geográfusokat a "kritikai" elhivatottság iránti érzékenységük fogja össze. Ez az oldal folyamatos feltöltés alatt áll, és a linkekkel való ellátása, magyarra fordítása is még folyamatban van!
