Gendering the Garden Conference
from Antiquity to the Present: Cross-cultural and Interdisciplinary Perspectives
Thursday, March 15, 9:30am-5:30pm

This one-day symposium aims to create new cross-disciplinary and cross-cultural dialogues about how gardens often become the locus for gender definitions and transgressions in literature and culture. The chronological scope of this conference will encompass antiquity to the present, with topics ranging from literature to garden design. Talks will discuss gardens in Ancient Roman and classical Urdu literature, Hebrew studies, John Donne, Chinese private gardens, Women as professional landscape designers, Vita Sackville-West’s Sissinghurst, and the racial history of UVA’s own Pavillion Gardens.
