AGM & 3rd Graduate Symposium
At The Garden Museum, London

Symposium at 10.30am, AGM at 3pm
Friday 12 July

Since we are promoting the Association of Gardens Trusts 2013 Conference this year instead of holding one of our own, our AGM will be at the Garden Museum in central London.

The day starts at 10.30 in the morning with our third Graduate Symposium at which five speakers, with an international range of subjects, will be presenting their unpublished papers on aspects of garden history.

Our speakers are:
Dr Paolo Cornaglia, Assistant Professor, Turin Polytechnic, Department of Architecture and Design,
on French gardens and gardening families in Piedmont in the 17th and18th centuries;
Jessica Tipton, PhD Candidate, University of Bristol,
on An 18th-century Russian visitor’s impressions of English gardening;
Diane James, PhD Candidate, University of Warwick, on
An endless variety of forms and proportions: Indian Influence on British Gardens and Garden Architecture;
Michal Bitton, PhD Candidate, The Hebrew University, Jerusalem,
on The Garden as Sacred Nature and the Garden as a Church: Transitions of Design and Function in the Garden of Gethsemane, 1800–1959;
Alison Wear, MA Garden History, University of Bristol,
on Roberto Burle Marx, 1909–94: Painting with Nature.

After lunch, the Annual General Meeting, at 3pm, will be followed, in the late afternoon by Drinks in the Garden of the Museum. Our Annual Report and Voting Papers will be distributed, as usual, with our June mailing.

As you will see from the Booking Form, we should like to know in advance how many will be attending the Symposium, and how many the Annual General Meeting.

We need to receive payment in advance from those who would like to order lunch between the Symposium and the AGM, and from those who would like to stay on for the drinks party in the museum’s garden afterwards.

All details are provided on the Booking Form, which we request is returned to us by 4 July at the latest, but preferably much sooner than that.
