Landscape, the Individual and Society: Change, Meanings and Goals
Regional Science Research Unit, University of Karlstad.
1993 (English)Report (Refereed)
Abstract [en]

This is the final report of the project "A Changing Natural and Cultural Landscape" (Research Council for the Humanities and Social Sciences). One of the overarching aims of this project was to develop a theoretical frame of reference for the attitudes one can or should adopt towards changes in the landscape.

The work entailed an attempt to develop a theory on perceptions/meanings of the landscape and a method for testing this theory. This is a research field which has received little attention in Sweden. Even internationally the field has only attracted limited interest, basically in the form of limited studies of details. My research resulted in the generation of a theory based on the idea that the landscape had various types of mental meanings: "pictorial value", "identity value" and "perceptual value with all the senses". A pictorial test was developed to illustrate the various perceptions of the landscape. The test was used on both local residents in the various study areas in Värmland and on groups of students from the university.
