May 9-10, 2014 - Symposium "Sound and Scent in the Garden"


The program

The program in Garden and Landscape Studies was established in 1969 to support advanced scholarship in garden history, landscape architecture, and the study of other culturally- and artistically-significant landscapes around the world from ancient times to the present. The program seeks to deepen the understanding of landscape both as a field of knowledge and research and as a practice carried out by landscape architects, landscape artists, and gardeners. The activities of the program include residential fellowships, short-term pre-doctoral residencies, one-month post-doctoral stipends, project grants for field research, public lectures and symposia, summer internships for landscape architecture students, and a new series of temporary installations of contemporary art. An active publications program produces symposium proceedings, studies in contemporary landscape design, and occasional monographs. Staff and fellows have access to a research library, including an extensive Rare Book collection and a collection of contemporary design documents, and to the incomparable gardens of Dumbarton Oaks.
