Abstract: 本文主要分析了近十年來西方人文地理學的旗艦期刊,隊當中與人口遷移研究相關的研究議題、取鏡與方向做進一步的剖析與討論,目的在使國內從事相關研究的地理學者可以清楚的掌握此一研究範疇的發展脈絡與未來的可能發展,以與國際學術有更多對話的空間。文中首先對199年代後期以後國內人文地理學領域的人口遷移研究做了初步的分析同時也透過近十年來英美主流的西方期刊,對人文地理中人口遷移研究的始祖-人口地理學80年代以後的發展、背景以及爭議做了回顧,並與國內的人口遷移研究做一比對,以彰顯出不同的社會脈絡下,不同的研究發展方向,以及兩者之間相互對話的可能。
This paper aims at investigating potential research issues, methodology and
approaches in the area of migration studies. It also serves to expose Taiwan’s human
geography studies to the international research community and to intrigue a
comparison across the national borders. I first review the migration studies done by
Taiwanese human geographers since late 1990s. Through the study of English journals
and literatures of the past decade, a thorough retrospect of development and major
issues since the 1980s, in population geography which is often referred to as the
foundation of migration studies, is then attempted. Migration studies done in Taiwan
are then compared to their Anglophonic counterparts. Consequently, we are able to
distinguish the different research directions in different societal contexts and explore
the possibility of a dialogue between the two.
In my analysis, migration studies of population geography in Anglophonic world
have so far established the discipline as an interdisciplinary paradigm: its research focus and methodology transcend the disciplinary boundaries on the one hand and
depict the relationship between population and natural environment and social issues
on the other hand. In addition to the trend of accumulation and analysis of data on
migration and dispersion at a macro-level, micro-level studies with cultural
implications, such as the migrants’ identification of place, “self”, and “others”, or
power-related subjects like “exclusiveness” and “boundaries”, are also popular. In
regard to migrant types, modern population geography turns to studies of minority,
minority of international migrants, communities with disadvantages, and females.
Despite the growth of migration studies to cover the diversity of migration types, key
issues and methodology, migration studies of population geography done in Taiwan
still lean toward those fashioned in the 1970s and 1980s, a period which is
characterized by low development in theories. By reviewing the development of
Anglophonic human geography and other sub-disciplines, we conclude that migration
studies can transcend the boundaries of academic disciplines, embrace issues that are
related to the reality of society, use a diversity of methodology, and intensify in
