What is cultural space? Why do we defend the land we believe we belong to? How is territorial memory recreated in mobility processes? The analysis of space is one of the oldest topics in the social sciences. There are various investigations on cultural geography that address the study of space both from the deepest philosophical foundations and from the design of mental and Cartesian maps based on problems that go from the abstract to the material, or studies on the implications of the physical, the ecological or the imaginary. This book analyzes the spaces and territories reconstructed in the contemporary mobility of peoples who had to leave their regions of origin as a result of forced migration, in their need to continue recognizing themselves within a threatened common territory. In this way, it is shown how in the spaces where diverse cultures converge, the territory, the region or the cultural space are lived, regulated and represented in multiple ways. In these appropriations, the territory and geography have primary relevance in the cultural and historical reproduction of societies that have survived the dispossession and mobility of their original territories.
