: Economic geography claims to be a critical discipline since the blossoming of the radical perspective in the 1970s. Each economic crisis has given impetus to research on the dialectical relationship between capitalist accumulation and territorial transformations at different scales. However, since the real estate and financial crisis of 2008, the study of these economic downturns and their impacts coexists with an accumulation of lines of research focused on the systemic critique of capitalism: financialisation, overpressure on the territory, real estate dispossession, social innovation, or the proliferation of critical and alternative economies are just but some of these new insights. This test summarizes the contributions of Spanish economic geography to these research concerns. A brief outline of the Economic Geography Specialty Group of the Spanish Geography Association is also included
