Regional Cultural Heritage versus National Heritage in Scania’s Disputed National Landscape

Germundsson, Tomas LU (2005) In International Journal of Heritage Studies 11(1). p.21-37
Abstract
This article argues that the official landscape heritage in Sweden is formed in an interplay between regional and national discourses, and that the national ideology during the last century has promoted the preservation of stereotyped landscapes that partly ignores the conditions under which these landscapes were actually formed. A conclusion is that Skåne's landscape heritage runs the risk of being alienated when it is valued from a national criterion, and that a critical questioning of official heritage practice is therefore needed.
