In this course, we will explore the rise of the country gentry, the landscape garden movement and the wars of religion in the 17th century, scientific inquiry and the Enlightenment, the changes to the rural economy in the 17th and 18th centuries, urbanization and the Industrial Revolution, global plant exploration, the Darwinian revolution in the 19th century, and several threads of reaction, reform, and renewal into the early 20th century. Thoroughly interdisciplinary in nature, this course links social and political development with changing land-use patterns, environmental history, horticulture, aesthetic and ornamental designs, scientific discoveries and technological innovations, all the while keeping in focus the central elements linking culture and society with the landscape.
