Chapter 9. Landscape Amulets: Materiality, Animality and Ecological Responsibility
Jay Johnston [+]
University of Sydney
This chapter explores how the concepts of matter and perception developed in the preceding chapters (via case studies examining the intersection of religious studies and archaeology) can be applied to re-think modes of engagement with broader environments and the ramifications (individual and collective) of such a shift in perspective. It includes a discussion of several 'ritual' landscapes and their interpretation in relation to recent ecological theory.
