image of Worldviews: Global Religions, Culture, and Ecology

The argument of this article is that perceived landscapes are the results of processes of articulation of territory. Landscape features, be they mountains or rivers, nature reserves, man made monuments, or technological artefacts (roads, bridges, lighthouses etc.), have been reproduced socially and culturally through a number of text genres, art forms, media, and through scientific description, particularly the field sciences and the historical and museum sciences. The results of these processes are perceived, 'inner', landscapes which are deeply embedded in the image and self understanding of nations and regions. Articulation of territory is in itself an important part of the historical emergence and growth of nationalism and regionalism.
