TEXT SIZE

2:11 p.m., March 12, 2013--Registration is now open for Earth Perfect? Nature, Utopia and the Garden, a four-day symposium scheduled June 6-9, that combines themed garden tours and exhibitions with lectures and academic papers on the relationship between humanity and the garden.

Based on the book of the same name, the symposium – with sites including at the University of Delaware -- explores the garden as “the result of humanity’s attempt to carve out an ideal place in nature, thereby fashioning a ‘perfect’ earth.”

Successful job fair

The University of Delaware recently held its 38th annual Project Search education fair, with representatives of school districts from across the country interviewing students and educational professionals.

The symposium will feature voices and experts from architecture, history, geography, literature, law and other areas, with their shared perspectives illuminating the garden as a site of contestation and a repository for symbolic, spiritual, social, political and ecological meaning. 

The cost of early-bird registration is $250, and there is a reduced rate of $150 for students. (Prices increase by $25 on May 4). 

The price of registration includes transportation between official symposium hotels and symposium venues (the University of Delaware, Longwood Gardens, Chanticleer, Winterthur, Mt. Cuba Center and the Delaware Center for Horticulture), admission to the gardens, and garden tours. 

Registration also includes receptions and lunches, except lunch on June 8 at Winterthur. All official symposium hotels include breakfast in the room rate, and some include mid-week dinners.
