Internal and external perception in conceptualizing home landscapes: Japanese examples
2014 (English)In: Geografiska Annaler. Series B, Human Geography, ISSN 0435-3684, E-ISSN 1468-0467, Vol. 96, no 1, 51-65 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
Employing the conceptual pair external-internal, the present article traces how meanings and ideals are generated in landscapes. It analyses the dialectics between the firsthand landscape experiences acquired in the course of everyday life activities and externally created models of value and meaning that have been adopted by the locals, replacing or dominating over the former ones. With rice and reed fields at the banks of Lake Biwa in Central Japan as a backdrop, this phenomenon is described at personal, community and cultural level.
