António Alves Esta imagem representa a intensidade de comunicações móveis e os movimentos pendulares dos utilizadores de telemóveis em Portugal. Quanto mais clara a cor das ligações maior a sua intensidade. O estudo que lhe dá origem [1] é um dos componentes utilizados para determinar a geografia das duas Macrorregiões funcionais portuguesas: Noroeste e Lisboa [2][3].
Como se pode observar na mesma, Coimbra comunica e comuta principalmente com a Macrorregião do Noroeste, particularmente com a cidade de Aveiro e sua envolvência. Tendo Leiria, uma cidade que fica a 150 km de Lisboa, sido inserida na Macrorregião de Lisboa, não se compreende que Coimbra tenha sido deixada isolada, em terra de ninguém, sem pertencer a qualquer uma das macrorregiões quando fazia todo o sentido, tendo em consideração as suas relações pop…

Mansfield College, Oxford, United Kingdom

Space and place affect the very way in which we experience, understand, navigate and recreate the world. Wars are fought over both real and imagined spaces; boundaries are erected against marginalised individuals, groups and populations, constructing a lived landscape of inclusion and exclusion. Space and place are also the focus of the creation and contestation of uncontainable mobilities — be they human, identities, cultures, meanings, information, finances and objects — that are causing geographies to shift and change. Moreover, the existence of space and place are (is?) irrevocably intertwined with, and created by, technologies, communication and culture, knowledge, politics, economics, power and lived experience. Understanding spatial relationships and the tensions and dynamics that inform them enables us …
