Abstract:
EN: Mangrove forests are located at the in-between of the sea and the land. People around the world have made sense of mangroves in many different ways, ranging from mangroves as „home of ghosts“, „resources“, „biodiversity reserve“, „coastal protection“ to „death bringers“. The aim of the research project is to understand how people in Southern Ecuador have made sense of their mangrove surrounding at the Gulf of Guayaquil over the last 200 years, and how this guides the use of mangrove areas around the Gulf of Guayaquil. The research draws on Communicative and Discursive Constructivism and the Sociology of Knowledge Approach to Discourse. The research data is composed of ethnographic and historical data, collected online, in archives and in an eight months' field research from 06/2019 until 02/2020 in Southern Ecuador. Besides unfolding empirically how meaning is attached to mangroves around the Gulf of Guayaquil and how discourses have shaped these meanings, the results aim to contribute to the ongoing discussions about the methodological framework used.
ES: Los manglares se encuentran en el intermedio del mar y de la tierra. Personas en todo el mundo han entendido los manglares de muchas maneras distintas, desde „casa de espíritus“, „recursos“, „reserva de biodiversidad“, „protección costal“ hasta „traedor de muerte“. El objetivo de este proyecto de investigación es entender cómo la gente en el Ecuador del sur entiende a los manglares de alrededor del Golfo de Guayaquil a lo largo de los últimos 200 años, y cómo esto guia el uso de los manglares alrededor del Golfo de Guayaquil. Esta investigación se refiere al constructivismo comunicativo y al análisis de discurso de la sociología del conocimiento. Los datos de la investigación están compuestos de datos etnográficos e históricos, recabados online, en archivos y durante un trabajo de campo desde 06/2019 hasta 02/2020 en el Ecuador del sur. Además de revelar empíricamente cómo se asigna un significado a los manglares alrededor del Golfo de Guayaquil y cómo los discursos han formado estos significados, los resultados quieren contribuir a las discusiones actuales acerca del esquema metodológico usado aquí.
