Three scholars from disparate disciplines will come together to discuss how landscape has been perceived, altered and imagined in modern history.

Katrina Jagodinsky, associate professor of history; Sarah Karle, associate professor of landscape architecture; and Tom Lynch, professor of English, will deliver the presentation at 6 p.m. Nov. 1 in the Sheldon Museum of Art's Abbott Auditorium. The lecture is free and open to the public and is in conjunction with the Sheldon exhibition, "Approaching Landscape."

The faculty members' diverse academic backgrounds will serve as a complement to the exhibit, which features more than 90 works from the museum’s permanent collection. "Approaching Landscape" considers how artists depict natural, built and imaginary environments as ways to explore the complex relationships humans have with the places they choose to inhabit.
