Time boundaries and landscape change: collective farms 1947-1994

The paper explores time boundaries in landscapes on the example of collectivization of Estonian agriculture after the Second World War. It argues that changing political regimes leave their imprint also in landscape, causing temporal boundaries. These temporal boundaries work as screens that influence our understanding of the past landscapes. The paper explores the "transparency" of these boundaries in the context of landscape change and continuity and tries to explain the essence of landscape change, combining different approaches to landscape.
