    EASA Series
    Epilogue to a book about changing concepts of place, and concepts of mobility and immobility.
  • Green, Sarah (Duke University Press, 2020)
    This chapter explores the increasing use of mathematical metaphors - particularly geometry and topology - in social science research about space, place and location. It looks at the history of how these terms have been used in mathematics and how the concepts of geometry and topology have been deployed in governance in order to look more closely at how these ideas have affected the materiality of how people live in their three dimensional world.

    Rethinking Borders
    When governments have to decide what to do about the threat of infection or contagion, their political concerns and, in particular, their understanding of the relationship between territory and people, are bound to inform their decisions. Drawing on accounts of how different political regimes responded to outbreaks of infectious disease in the Mediterranean region in the past, this chapter focuses on how different regimes understand the spread of the disease: its movement across space. The rapid spread of COVID-19 during 2020 and the highly diverse political responses to it have demonstrated the importance of this point. Close the borders or not? Quarantine the population or not? The issue here is how people understand, organize and structure spatial relations and separations, as well as how they understand the disease in itself. Given that the spread of a disease involves movement across space, including the crossing of political borders, the way that location is understood and organized is important to how diverse peoples and regimes respond to the spread of disease. The question the chapter deals with is how diseases are located – in the Mediterranean region, in this case.
  • Varstela, Risto-Pekka (Helsingfors universitet, 2017)
    Tutkimuksessa selvitettiin Helsingin yliopistollisen keskussairaalan (HYKS) alueella todettujen suun alueen neurogeenisten kasvainten yleisyys sekä niiden lokalisaatio suun alueella. Tutkimus suoritettiin, koska vastaavaa tutkimusta ei ole aikaisemmin tehty. Tutkimukseen valittiin mukaan kaikki patologian laitoksen Qpati-tietokantaan sisältyvät hermostoperäiset muutokset suun alueelta vuosilta 1974–2015. Aineiston kokonaismäärä oli 155 potilasta, joista miehiä oli 74 ja naisia 81. Neurogeenisistä kasvaimista yleisin oli jyvässolukasvain (n = 48), jonka yleisin lokalisaatio oli kieli (n = 31). Tämä voidaan selittää kielen runsaalla hermotuksella. Seuraavaksi yleisin kasvain oli neurofibrooma (n = 36).

    Culture, Economy and the Social
    This paper studies the coming together of two large-scale infrastructural failures in Greece in 2015: the banking system, which came to a halt because of the Greek fiscal crisis combined with the calling of a referendum on whether to accept further 'austerity' from the EU negotiators in return for a further bailout; and the numbers of refugees and other undocumented migrants arriving in Greece at exactly the same time, causing a general collapse in the state authority's capacity to manage the new arrivals. The paper argues that both of these failures reveal the deep interdependence of Greek infrastructures with others, and how that condition creates specific kinds of relative value for Greece and Greeks.
