Disciples of Flora: Gardens in History & Culture

Posted by Robyn, February 21, 2013

This interdisciplinary conference will explore the place and vitality of gardens as cultural objects and repositories of meaning.  Diverse writers and artists have used the subject matter of gardens, landscape, and plants to educate their audience, to enter into political and cultural debates, particularly around issues of gender and class, and to signal moments of intellectual and spiritual insight. Sessions begin at 10:30AM on Friday in Ustler Hall. Click here for an event program.
