SCHOLARLY WRITING AND TRAVELS - This paper will examine the relationship between the geographic discourse on place and the experience of otherness, or alterity. Through the enunciation dimension of discourse, one can find signs in texts that indicate the degree to which the discourse is open to otherness. The openning of discourse to alterity offers to geographic discourse the possibility of integrating different meanings to place and therefore presenting more complex representations.
