SELL, JAMES LEE. January 1983 (has links)
This dissertation is a study of territoriality as it may appear in children's experience of the neighborhood. A review of the literature on human territoriality reveals six major dimensions: boundaries and markers, defense and control, resources and activities, social relations, psychological qualities and identity. There is also an important developmental aspect, in which territoriality may be a natural outgrowth of human learning and maturation. An examination of theoretical approaches to child development provides some important insights toward uncovering a common process underlying territoriality and development, including an ecological definition of environment, the developmental theories of Piaget and the organismic-developmentalists, the psychoanalytic views of environmental mastery and transitional phenomena, play research, and the developmental approaches to spatial cognition. In a case study in Tucson, Arizona, the territorial dimensions of boundedness, activities, control, social relations, and identity were used as a framework for study of children's perception of and behavior in their neighborhoods. A sample of 100 children in Grades 4-6 at an elementary school were interviewed using an aerial photograph, as well as asked to provide a written description of their neighborhoods and take a Locus of Control Test. A smaller subsample of 15 was used for a more detailed study involving sketch maps, diaries, neighborhood tours, subject-employed photography, the Who Am I Test, and interviews with parents. The results suggested children's neighborhoods are well-defined spatially, and are seen primarily as an activity space. The neighborhoods were distinct from outside areas in terms of the amount, variety, and type of games and other activities, with a social organization that seemed to built upon play. However, a major portion of children's social relations, as measured by the locations of best friends, was not associated with their neighborhoods. Inside their neighborhoods were found most of the children's forts, playhouses, hideouts, and special play areas, but their favorite places were about evenly divided between locations inside and outside the neighborhoods. Neighborhood place associations were somewhat linked to personal identity, but not to locus of control. Limiting factors on the extent of the children's neighborhoods were parents, streets, and mode of transportation.

Loss of control is a well-documented human response to hospitalization. The purpose of this study was to construct and test a theoretical model of perceived territorial control among hospitalized adults. Territorial control was defined as the freedom or choice one has in regulating or influencing the objects, activities, and social intereactions within a particular space claimed or identified as one's own. The space of concern in this study was the patient's hospital room. The study focused not on the negative aspects of a loss of control but on the positive outcomes of having a sense of control. A three-stage, multivariate, causal-modeling design was used to estimate the impact of perceived territorial control on state anxiety and satisfaction with care in a convenience sample of 80 Hispanic and Anglo-American males and females between the ages of 18 and 79 who were in the hospital for short-term orthopedic care. Attitudinal, self-report measures were used predominantly. Instruments were constructed to index centrality of territory and territorial control perceptions. Correlational and multiple regression statistical techniques were used to estimate the theoretical model. Tests for violations of the statistical and causal assumptions were performed. Centrality of territory, assistance needs, and the powerful others locus of control significantly influenced patient territorial control perceptions. Temporal duration, internal locus of control, and chance locus of control made no significant impact on perceived territorial control. Patient territorial control perceptions significantly decreased state anxiety and significantly increased satisfaction with care. Perceived territorial control explained 24 percent of the variance in patient state anxiety and 21 percent of the variance in satisfaction with care. An unstaged, empirical test of the model increased the explained variance to 32 percent for state anxiety and 40 percent for satisfaction with care. There was a positive relationship (r = .41) between age and centrality of territory and a negative relationship (r = -.31) between age and state anxiety. The implications were related primarily to continued theory-building and the development of nursing practice theories.

Desde a década de 1960, o Rio Grande do Norte, ao priorizar o turismo de "sol e mar", vem promovendo profundas transformações no seu litoral. Com o megaprojeto Parque das Dunas - Via Costeira, na década de 1980, definitivamente, o estado incorpora, através das políticas públicas de turismo, no litoral, as demandas da economia globalizada. Na década de 1990, com a implantação do PRODETUR (considerada a maior política pública de turismo do Brasil), este processo se aprofunda e todo o litoral norte-rio-grandense passa a exercer um papel definitivo no jogo das disputas internacionais por lugares turísticos, principalmente no seu trecho oriental, que corresponde na política de turismo atual ao Polo de Desenvolvimento Integrado do Turismo Sustentável Costa das Dunas. Contudo, em nenhum destes processos, as populações locais, afetadas por estas políticas, foram consultadas de forma que se promovesse uma participação efetivamente democrática e emancipatória, como prescrevem as orientações de uma política que se afirma como sustentável. Neste sentido, o que se coloca, como objetivo desta tese, é analisar como as comunidades litorâneas vêm entendendo o desenvolvimento destas políticas, que apenas têm desempenhado um papel que não favorece o seu protagonismo e nem o surgimento de uma proposta de turismo solidário e comunitário / Abstract: Since the last decades of 20th century, tourism has been considered the most economic activity which has a great capacity to promote local sustainable development by generating development and income and improving the quality of life in developing countries. Since 1960 Rio Grande do Norte - Brazil, by prioritizing "the Sun and sea tourism", has promoted deep changes in its coastline. With the mega Project "Dunes Park - Coastal road" in the 1980ths, the government incorporated by through tourism's public policies, the coastal to demands of the globalized economy. In the 1990s with a Project called "PRODETUR" - considered the largest public policy of tourism in Brazil - this process deepened and all along the coast of Rio Grande do Norte began to take part in the game of international disputes for tourist spots. Mostly in the eastern part, which are considered by the current policy the Integrated Development of Sustainable Tourism of Coastal Dune's Polo. But, in none of these cases, the local populations affected by these policies were consulted, in order to promote a democratic and emancipator participation (as prescribed by the guidelines of a policy) that is considered itself as sustainable. So, the aim of this thesis is to show that the coastal's communities throughout the period of implementation of these policies, has not played a roll that could to favor the communities "protagonism" and neither a solidary's tourism / Doutorado / Análise Ambiental e Dinâmica Territorial / Doutor em Geografia

Metes and bounds : a search for archaeological indicators of hunter-gatherer territoriality

Burnard, Linda Louise January 1987 (has links)
The subject of hunter-gatherer territoriality is still a matter of some debate in the anthropological literature. It has been asserted that territorial systems involving perimeter defence and exclusive use rights by fixed membership groups are rare among hunters and gatherers. It has also been suggested that there is an association between this form of land tenure and the evolution of complex society. Since the problem is a developmental one, archaeology, with its developmental and temporal perspective, should be able to contribute to an understanding of this phenomenon. Unfortunately, little attempt has been made to identify material correlates of territorial land use. This thesis seeks to facilitate the development of an archaeologically operational definition of hunter-gatherer territoriality. Toward this end a number of propositions are formulated which postulate relationships between territoriality and various classes of archaeologically observable data. In a comparative/contrastive format the propositions are then applied to data derived from two hunting and gathering societies, the Gitksan and Chilcotin peoples of British Columbia, the one highly territorial, the other with a flexible land use strategy of loosely defined borders and unrestricted access to resources. The study is ethnoarchaeological in that the data base against which the propositions are evaluated, is derived from ethnographic, archival, and archaeological sources. A number of kinds of material patterning related to Gitksan territoriality are identified. Whether the kinds of patterning identified here can be successfully recovered and interpreted in an archaeological context awaits the application of these findings to an archaeological data base. The degree to which the material expression of territorial land use identified in this study are typical of territorial hunters and gatherers in general, also needs to be demonstrated. / Arts, Faculty of / Anthropology, Department of / Graduate

Tais tipologias, muitas vezes, classificam as cidades a partir do porte populacional, o qual, não representa a real hierarquização entre os espaços urbanos. Nesta tese, buscamos através da análise crítica de outros aspectos, apontar a complexidade que é a classificação hierárquica de cidades, principalmente no tocante às cidades médias, cuja classificação por porte populacional inclui cidades que não exercem tais funções no âmbito da rede urbana. Partindo deste contexto, destacamos como determinantes, para se realizar a classificação hierárquica das cidades, a situação geográfica e a estrutura das mesmas, associada à distribuição das expressões de centralidade voltadas ao consumo de bens e serviços no bojo do espaço intraurbano. Deste modo, realizamos a análise de três situações geográficas distintas: metropolitana, não-metropolitana e um centro urbano regional, com cidades do mesmo porte populacional, buscando identificar se estas cidades exercem as mesmas funções no âmbito da rede urbana e desenvolvem características estruturais semelhantes no âmbito do espaço intraurbano. Partindo deste princípio, realizamos uma análise da estrutura das cidades com porte populacionais médios com situações geográficas distintas, sendo elas: Taboão da Serra em uma situação metropolitana; São Carlos em uma situação de aglomeração não-metropolitana e; Marília em uma situação de centro urbano regional. Diante da análise da distribuição das expressões da centralidade pelo espaço intraurbano e suas características, observamos que as cidades de porte médio em situações não-metropolitanas e que exercem funções médias no âmbito de sua rede urbana regional, têm em sua estrutura maior complexidade, com a ocorrência de múltiplas formas de expressões da centralidade, enquanto cidades de porte-médio em situações metropolitanas, apesar da complexidade de sua estrutura, apresentam menor quantidade e diversificação de expressões da centralidade. Deste modo, esta tese considera que é essencial à classificação hierárquicas de cidades relacionar características e aspectos interurbanos e intraurbanos, bem como, considera que são essenciais para tal classificação evidenciar a função que a cidade exerce no conjunto de sua situação geográfica, além da associação com a estrutura da cidade e sua morfologia, o que pode ser realizado através da identificação e caracterização da distribuição das expressões da centralidade no âmbito de seu espaço intraurbano / Abstract: Many contemporary analysis of urbanization include the formulation of cities typologies, concerned with metropolitan areas, medium-sized cities and small towns. Such typologies often classify cities from population size, which does not represent the real hierarchy between urban spaces . Through critical analysis of other aspects, in this thesis we seek to point out the complexity that is the hierarchical classification of cities, especially with regard to medium-sized cities classified by population size, what includes cities that do not perform such functions within the urban network. In this context, we highlight as determinants to perform the hierarchical classification of cities the geographical location and its urban structure, associated with the distribution of centrality expressions geared to consumer goods and services on intraurban space. This way, we analyze three different geographical situations: a metropolitan, a non- metropolitan and a regional urban center with cities of the same population size, in order to identify whether these cities perform the same functions within the urban network and develop similar structural features in under the intraurban space. With this assumption, we conducted an analysis of these cities structures, with medium population size but with different geographical situations, namely: Taboao da Serra, in a metropolitan situation; São Carlos, in a situation of non-metropolitan agglomeration; and Marilia, in a situation of regional urban center. After analyzing the distribution of the expressions of the intraurban centrality and their characteristics, we observe more complexity in structure of non-metropolitan medium-sized cities with medium functions on its regional urban network, with the occurrence of multiple forms of centrality expressions, while medium-sized cities in metropolitan situations, despite the complexity of its structure, showed a smaller amount and diversity of centrality expressions. Thus, in this thesis we consider it¿s essential to the hierarchical classification to relate intraurban cities features, aspects and intercity; as well, we consider essential for such classification to highlight the role a city plays in all of its geographic situation, besides this association with the city structure and morphology, which can be realized through the identification and characterization of the central expression distribution within its intraurban space. / Doutorado / Análise Ambiental e Dinâmica Territorial / Mestre em Geografia
