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.

Events will include panels, a book exhibit, a garden tour of the UF campus, and a guided tour of the Asian gardens at the Harn Museum. Elizabeth K. Helsinger, the John Matthews Manly Distinguished Service Professor of English, Art History, and Visual Arts at the University of Chicago, will deliver the keynote address. Other participants include Verena Conley (Harvard), Lisa Moore (University of Texas), Elise Smith (Millsaps College), and Katharine von Stackelberg (Brock University, Canada), as well as several speakers from UF.
