摘要:

Social and Cultural Geography(简称为SCG)是国际社会文化地理学研究领域的旗帜性刊物。采用文本分析的研究方法,辅助运用Citespace、Histcite等分析软件,在讨论社会文化地理学与文化地理学关系的基础上,从发文作者、研究区域空间、研究热点、研究理论基础、资料收集方法、资料分析及展现形式等方面,对SCG创刊以来所有文章进行了分析与总结。结果发现:SCG作为一个国际性社会文化地理学研究刊物,其载文量持续上升且研究区域与文章来源出现了全球化的趋势。在研究热点方面,由空间、地方、文化等传统话题向物质文化地理学、少数群体及公共政策等方面的转向较为明显,权力、认同、记忆、家、流动性、种族、宗教、性别、音乐、食物、教育等成为新的研究热点。研究方法以定性为主,主要采用访谈、民族志(人种志)、参与式观察与焦点小组等资料收集方法和文本分析、分析性比较、例证法等资料分析手段。在资料佐证形式表达方面,相比于中国,西方社会文化地理学研究中资料表现更趋于多元,文字资料、照片、地图等都是使用较多的佐证资料。希望通过对西方经典杂志相关文献梳理,从研究热点到研究方法的选择等方面能够对中国社会文化地理学研究提供一定启示。

Abstract:

Social and Cultural Geography (or SCG, for short), an academic journal with an international reputation in the areas of social and cultural geography, has created an interdisciplinary platform for scholarly discussions related to the spatiality of society and culture. Based on the statistical analysis of 949 articles that have been published since 2000 when the journal was launched, this paper attempts to take a close look at the authors, research areas, topics, the methods of data collection and analysis, in SCG with the aid of Citespace and Histcite software. We found that: (1) The number of published papers substantially grew and the research areas and source of authors are continually internationalized, which implies that social and cultural geography is increasingly internationally-recognized; (2) The research interests have witnessed the "cultural turn" and "policy turn" within geography, mainly focusing upon the emerging topics like power, identity, memory, home, mobility, race, religion, music and food, all of which are human-centered and highly relevant to social issues; (3) The research articles in SCG are mainly engaged in qualitative approaches, like interview, ethnography, participant observation, and focused group. (4) The Western scholars prefer multiple ways of data collection and evidence displaying including text analysis, analytical comparison, visual aid, which are less commonly used in China's geo-journals. In conclusion, by classifying and analyzing the journal articles published in SCG, this article tries to capture the up-to-date research tendency and methodological approaches in current Western social and cultural geographical academia in order to provide some insights for domestic geographical research.
