Abstract [en]

For centuries the Swedish landscape has been assessed on account of its natural and cultural heritage. The 20th century however, marks an especially dynamic period of preservation and conservation acts, due to the extensive transformation of natural habitats, cultural scenery, space and society in the wake of modernity. Over the course of this period the motifs and values embodied in the landscape's natural and cultural heritage undergo significant changes, as the landscape perception of aniquarians and environmental preservationists shifts. This thesis is concerned with how the Swedish landscape has been viewed and taken in use by these subjects to materialize ideas of nature, culture and heritage over the course of the 20th century. Its inquiry is geographical and historical. By studying the transformation of the spatial setting, and the agenda of agencies of natural and cultural heritage, these perspectives merge to create a synthesis, bringing new insights to the relations between natural and cultural heritage, antiquarians, conservationists and the landscape and last – but not least – the historically constructed spatial realms of nature and culture in the Swedish landscape.
