Both as physical locations and as fantasies of selfhood, gardens always speak of where—and how—we see ourselves in the world. Focusing on the imagination and creation of gardens in the disparate geographies of eighteenth-century Europe, the Caribbean, and North America, this conference explores transatlantic ideas of nation, location, and self, and asks how the experience of gardens might be shared across nations, oceans, and cultures.

This conference is co-sponsored by The Huntington's William French Smith Endowment and the USC-Huntington Early Modern Studies Institute.
