Public Lecture Series: Gardens: History, Form, Future"

In the summer semester of 2021, the University of Erfurt and the University of Applied Sciences will once again jointly organise a public lecture series - for Corona reasons as an online event. This time, in keeping with the "BUGA Erfurt 2021", the theme is "Gardens: History, Shape, Future".

An interdisciplinary approach has been chosen for the event, which will open up historical-philosophical, sociological, pedagogical, literary and natural science perspectives and also establish local references to the topic. Experts from the university, the university of applied sciences as well as from institutions outside Erfurt are looking forward to discussing with the participants topics such as gardens in Epicurus or in the Bible, baroque or Indian gardens, the role of Benary for horticulture, the urban gardening movement, the school garden or even the future of the garden in the city.

The organising team of Alexander Thumfart, Sandra Tänzer and Bettina Hollstein, says: "We are very much looking forward to the varied programme and exciting learning experiences about a topic as significant in Erfurt's history and present as the garden."

The lecture series starts on 13 April and will then take place in a digital format on Tuesdays from 6.15 to 7.45 pm. You will find the access link shortly before each event on the lecture series website at: www.uni-erfurt.de/en/university/current/event-series/lecture-series
