Une « chute du Mur » géographique ? Les relations est-ouest dans les congrès allemands des géographes des décennies 1980-1990

Abstract : During the Cold War, the world as well as Germany were divided into two blocs. The relations between them were hindered by many obstacles, in politics but also in science – which was a rather strategic field. This master thesis aims to question the distance between GDR and FRG geographers in the 1980s, and how it played into the German scientific reunification – when this gap, presented as negative, was used to justify the reforms of East-German Higher Education and Research. This survey is based on geographical congresses archives from the Leibniz Institute for Regional Geography archives, and uses cartography, statistics and graph theory. It shows that, although the two Germanies were separated politically, links between geographers still existed in the late 1980s; which did not prevent a reconfiguration of both the locations and the networks of Eastern-German geography during the 1990s, to the detriment of the GDR scientific heritage.
