Event Description

Al-Bustan is pleased to co-present the third event of Words Adorned with Bryn Mawr College’s Middle East Studies Program and Arabic Program

Presenting: A Talk by Dr. Dede Fairchild Ruggles
Islamic gardens were richly sensory environments: the poets tell us so, the manuscript paintings show us, and our own encounters with modern gardens reminds us of these pleasures. Dr. Ruggles will discuss the Andalusian Garden as she tries to answer the question: how do we study the sensory experiences of the past, given that the ephemeral effects of scented flowers and fleeting sounds leave so few traces?
