In conjunction with the Center-funded Words Adorned: Andalusian Poetry and Music, Al-Bustan Seeds of Culture presents a talk on the sound and scent in the Andalusian Garden by Dr. Dede Fairchild Ruggles of the Department of Landscape Architecture at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. Dr. Ruggles will discuss how scholars study the sensory experiences of the past, given that the ephemeral effects of scented flowers and fleeting sounds leave so few traces.
