Territorio y cultura

December 1996
Estudios Sobre las Culturas Contemporáneas;dic1996, Vol. 2 Issue 4, p9
Academic Journal
On one hand, the author refutes the theories of modernization which deny any relevance nowadays to territory as far as cultural and social life is concerned, and, on the other, he criticizes some anthropologists who assert that "post-modern culture" is a wandering, undifferentiated and placeless culture. The conclusion upholds the persistence of territorial identities, even though in modified forms and according to new configurations.
