ABSTRACT

The cultural landscape of a coastal regions serves as a trace of humanity's adaptation and evolution to the marine environment, exhibiting several distinct cultural characteristics as compared to inland regions. Therefore, a separate system of interpretation is necessary for comprehensive understanding. In this context, this paper establishes an system of interpretation based on the recently increasing discourse on cultural memory, and examines the methods that are applicable to interpreting cultural landscapes in coastal regions. Since cultural memory theory addresses memory at the internal, social, and cultural levels, the cultural landscape of a coastal regions can be interpreted from various perspectives within the cultural memory framework. As cultural memories are stored in media and temporarily fixed, three types of interpretation methods were employed for each type: text, arena, and performance. Considering that memory at the internal and social levels is an ongoing process that is continuously changing, an interpretation method for each stage — these being formation, storage / conversion, and transmission — was applied. The analytical framework presented in this study is expected to contribute to the empirical investigation of cultural landscapes in coastal regions. It is anticipated that this framework will facilitate the current generation's appreciation of these landscapes' values and assist in establishing a foundation for sustainable development
