Islamic Gardens: The Meaning of Beauty

Dr. D. Fairchild Ruggles of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is professor in the Department of Landscape Architecture at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign, with additional appointments to the School of Architecture, Program in Art History, Women's Studies Program, and Medieval Studies Program. She trained as an historian of Islamic art and architecture, and her first body of research examined the medieval Andalusian landscape as a complex working system in which culture and ideology were inseparable from agricultural practice and economy, water management, and systems of representation. She is the author of two award-winning books on gardens: Gardens, Landscape, and Vision in the Palaces of Islamic Spain (2000), and Islamic Gardens and Landscapes (2008).

The Center for the Humanities presents Dr. Ruggles' lecture entitled 'Islamic Gardens: The Meaning of Beauty'. Her talk will expand on the ideas raised by the 2013 EIUReads! selection, The Submission by Amy Waldman, which discusses the selection of a Ground Zero Memorial.
