About the seminar

The History of Gardens and Landscapes Seminar provides a forum for historians and researchers, artists, practioners and interested members of the public to explore and discuss issues related to the history, use and meaning of gardens and the designed landscape and their importance in the public realm today.

The seminars are designed to advance knowledge and create discourse across differing but related disciplines, all of which look to gardens, landscapes and their histories as a key focus or inspiration. It aims to explore new ideas, discover new voices and define new approaches to the subject as well as to provide an opportunity to critically explore more traditional approaches and concepts.
