In 40 years of symposia, the Garden and Landscape Studies program at Dumbarton Oaks has addressed a nearly global range of cultures, epochs, and subjects. But one region is conspicuously absent: sub-Saharan Africa. This omission is particularly glaring, given that the subcontinent is one of the oldest inhabited landscapes on earth, with a staggering range of geographies, cultures, histories, and patterns of settlement.
Confirmed speakers include: Suzanne Blier, Harvard University; Lazare Eloundou, UNESCO World Heritage Center; Joost Fontein, University of Edinburgh; Jeremy Foster, Cornell University; Grey Gundaker, William and Mary; Charlotte Joy, University of London; Paul Lane, University of York; Neil Norman, William and Mary; Akin Ogundiran, UNC Charlotte; Ikem Okoye, University of Delaware; Innocent Pikirayi, University of Pretoria; Maano Ramutsindela, University of Cape Town; Gemma Rodrigues, UCLA; and Michael Sheridan, Middlebury College.
