This exceptional occasion brings together international speakers unlikely to be gathered again in UK. Their papers will touch upon diverse aspects of Chinese gardens studies, from historical, sociological, artistic or cultural point of views; including the Western perception of “the Chinese garden” through orientalism, the “Chinese gardens” built in Western countries, the translation of Chinese sources or the study of regional gardening styles. It is relevant to Landscape, Architecture, Translation and Historical studies scholars in addition to East Asian studies and all interested.

This conference is organised to celebrate Dr. Alison Hardie’s ( University of Leeds) career upon her retirement this Summer 2015. The conference’s programme includes both international scholars and PhD students who worked closely with Dr. Hardie.
