Landscape research in a world of domesticated landscapes: The role of values, theory, and concepts
Stockholm University, Faculty of Social Sciences, Department of Human Geography.

Abstract [en]

This review takes as its starting point the relationship between landscape history and environmentalpolicy. Landscape historians now face the same problem that social scientists have long faced, i.e., how torelate to values and to the political use of scientific results, which demands greater conceptual andtheoretical rigour from integrative landscape studies. The concept of socialeecological systems is criticisedfor its reduction of the complexity and human agency involved in land use; in contrast, ClarkErickson’s concept of domesticated landscapes offers an approach that can incorporate humanist as wellas scientific considerations. The roles of surplus production and labour allocation in early societies areseen as crucial for understanding early domesticated landscapes. Different social formations result indifferent landscapes, but landscapes also have an earthly inertia. Investments in land govern, steer,impede, or inspire land use in subsequent social formations. This specific understanding of time andplace is shared by Quaternary geology, landscape archaeology, and historical geography, and distinguishesthem from both history and physics.
