Fellows and Visiting Scholars in Garden and Landscape Studies

The fellowship program in Garden and Landscape Studies at Dumbarton Oaks seeks a balance between historical research and investigations of current practice, between inquiries at the scale of the garden and those addressing larger landscapes.

The program invites consideration of all aspects of this interdisciplinary and international field: agricultural, architectural, art historical, botanical, cultural, ecological, economic, geographical, horticultural, social, and technological. Fellows are encouraged to consider topics from a variety of perspectives, including design, patronage, iconography, ideology, reception, preservation, landscape performance, and user experience; and using methods from other relevant fields of the humanities (art and architectural history and criticism, literary studies, philosophy) and of the social sciences (social history, cultural geography, cultural studies, social anthropology). Complementing a traditional focus on garden history, the program invites research into the histories of landscape architecture and culturally-significant landscapes of all kinds.

Recently, following the award of a major grant from the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, Dumbarton Oaks launched a new interdisciplinary fellowship program in urban landscape studies, which will involve new semester-long fellowships to be shared among designers and academics and shorter-term invitational residencies for senior practitioners. Learn more about the Mellon Initiative in Urban Landscape Studies.
