Explanation:
Loose = vago, débil; Underpinning = soporte, apuntalamiento. Yo diría: A través de trabajos vagamente relacionados, este escrito...Explorando la literatura regional y sus soportes intelectuales. Se podría quizás cambiar vagamente por debilmente y soportes por bases. Referencia: Simon & Schuster y Diccionary of Synonyms and Antonyms. Espero sea de ayuda.

Explanation:
Por medio de estudios vagamente relacionados......

Explorando la literatura regional y su respaldo intelectual...


Apuntalamiento no se usaria en este caso ya que es un termino para la industria constructora. Tambien se puede usar soporte en vez de respaldo, pero me parece un termino que se usaria en terminologia tecnica.

Espero que esto te ayude.
