Modernity, Community and the Landscape Idea

Modernity, Community and the Landscape Idea Landscape has recently achieved a broad intellectual prominence as a theoreticalconcept across the arts, humanities, and social sciences. Its complex roots andmeanings are scrutinized with particular attention given to the pictorial and scenicaspects of landscape, which are here historicized in relation to processes ofcultural modernization. Landscape's roots in territorially based communitygoverned by customary law have never been wholly destroyed and an analysis of theevolution of landscapes in Southern California suggests that they are beingrecovered in certain respects in the context of hypermodernity. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Journal of Material Culture SAGE

Abstract

Landscape has recently achieved a broad intellectual prominence as a theoreticalconcept across the arts, humanities, and social sciences. Its complex roots andmeanings are scrutinized with particular attention given to the pictorial and scenicaspects of landscape, which are here historicized in relation to processes ofcultural modernization. Landscape's roots in territorially based communitygoverned by customary law have never been wholly destroyed and an analysis of theevolution of landscapes in Southern California suggests that they are beingrecovered in certain respects in the context of hypermodernity.
