SPACES IN TRANSLATION: JAPANESE GARDENS AND THE WEST
The German author of Spaces in Translation: Japanese Gardens and the West discusses his provocative and groundbreaking theories that the idea of the Japanese garden has less to do with Japan’s history and traditions than with the country’s interactions with the West. Tagsold, who has researched over eighty Japanese gardens in ten countries, explores their history, popularity, and shifting aesthetic, as well as that most elusive concept - authenticity.

About the Speaker

He writes on Japanese garden in the West, sport mega-events in Japan, and Japanese diasporas in Europe. He has been researching Japanese gardens in Europe and the USA since 2006.  Spaces in Translation(Penn Press) appeared in August 2017.

A limited number of discounted student tickets will be available for $5.
