SEVALHO, Gil  e  STOTZ, Eduardo. The symbolic cartography of epidemiological risk: an incursion into the thinking of Boaventura de Sousa Santos. Hist. cienc. saude-Manguinhos [online]. 2012, vol.19, n.3, pp.899-918. ISSN 0104-5970.  https://doi.org/10.1590/S0104-59702012000300007.

Adopting an interdisciplinary approach, the concept of epidemiological risk is critically discussed. The work of Elizabeth Teixeira, who uses the ideas of Boaventura de Sousa Santos, is presented. The proposal for symbolic cartography of epidemiological risk is sketched out, defining analytical scales ranging from exteriority and distancing from the field of science to the proximity of territory and place, conceptualized on the basis of the geography of Milton Santos, in which conceptions of risk are drawn up from the perspective of the everyday routine of social existence. Questions relating to space, territoriality, subjectivity and time give meaning to a cartography of risk which is proposed as a model for epidemiological investigations.

Palavras-chave : interdisciplinarity; symbolic cartography; epidemiology; risk.
