How do remote southern hemisphere residents perceive the world? Mental maps drawn by East Timorese and Mozambican islanders

Authors(s) and Affiliation(s)



The paper uses mental maps to explore how residents of remote islands perceive the world. Hand drawn mental maps are produced by young people in East Timor and Mozambique. Three episodes of globalisation have had an impact in Portuguese speaking countries through military presence, political dominance, commercial and cultural influence. Evidence of this impact was sought in the mental maps, but they were influenced by remote islanders' geographical education and by their personal and family experiences with the lack of globalisation influences
