  • Jean-Bernard Racine (born 1940, in Neuchâtel, Switzerland) is a Professor of Geography at the Institute of Geography, Faculty of Geosciences and Environment of the University of Lausanne (UNIL) and at HEC Lausanne Business School. Professor Racine received his first PhD in Geography from the University of Aix-en-Provence (1965) and his State PhD in Geography (1973) from the University of Nice. Jean-Bernard Bernard was a professor at the University of Sherbrooke between 1965 and 1969, and at the University of Ottawa from 1969 to 1973. Jean-Bernard Racine is the author of many articles and books in the fields of quantitative geography, epistemology and social geography. Influenced by Brian Berry, Walter Isard, Peter Gould and David Harvey, he published L’Analyse quantitative en géographie in 1973 with H. Reymond and was widely considered as one of the pioneers of the “new geography” in the 1970s in the Francophone world. Professor Racine has also contributed to the development of epistemology in the social sciences as evidenced by his 1981 book called Problématiques de la géographie published with H. Isnard and H. Reymond. In the 1990s and 2000s, his interests moved again, to become concerned with issues of social and cultural geography: La ville entre Dieu et les hommes was published in 1993. Professor Racine has received the Vautrin Lud International Geography Prize (France) in 1997. He holds an honorary doctorate from Iasi (Romania). (en)
