Landscape and Sacred Architecture in Pre-modern South Asia
Fall 2014 Colloquium
November 14, 2014
Dumbarton Oaks, Washington



Dumbarton Oaks announces the annual fall colloquium for 2014 titled
"Landscape and Sacred Architecture in Pre-modern South Asia." To be
held on Friday, November 14, the colloquium is co-organized by John
Beardsley, Director of Garden and Landscape Studies, and Subhashini
Kaligotla, doctoral candidate in the Department of Art History and
Archaeology at Columbia University and predoctoral fellow at the Getty
Research Institute. Because Dumbarton Oaks and the field of garden
and landscape studies more largely have already seen extensive
research into Islamic gardens generally and Mughal gardens in South
Asia particularly, we want to push the focus back in time. The
colloquium will focus heavily though not entirely on temples, which
form the bulk of the extant remains from the pre-modern era: Buddhist,
Hindu, and Jain, both constructed and rock-cut. Speakers will also
address other kinds of ritual sites, including monastic complexes,
rock reliefs, water monuments, and funerary structures. Whatever the
type, the architecture will be considered in connection to landscape:
its relation to topography, climate, and hydrology; to water
engineering and management; and to larger landscape contexts such as
nearby settlements, rivers, and roads. Departing from the
monument-based perspectives that have dominated architectural
histories so far, presentations will explore the spatial
configurations of sacred complexes, including the interrelationships
of component structures, as well as the distribution of the larger
built environment. Speakers will engage with the multiplicity of ways
in which sacred places have been constituted: from worship rituals
such as festivals and processions to the economic practices of food
production and irrigation; from the pragmatic transformation of remote
wilderness areas to the expression of landscape cosmology and
symbolism; from spatial concerns such as circulation, approach, and
orientation to the exigencies of transport and trade. Gardens and
landscapes are also imagined realms. We therefore expect consideration
of discursive modes as they pertain to material culture—how
inscriptions, courtly texts, or architectural treatises, for example,
gave rise to or relate to specific landscape practices. Much of the
research to be presented in the colloquium is new and unpublished and
marks both a paradigm shift within architectural history and an
important contribution to the emerging field of South Asian landscape
studies.

Upcoming Talk: Botanically Queer: Plants, Sex, and Biopolitics

Dr. Catriona Sandilands

Professor, Faculty of Environmental Studies
York University

Social Justice @ UBC Noted Scholars Lecture Series
The Intimate Public Sphere: Thinking Through the Skin

Wednesday, October 29, 12pm
2080 West Mall, Room 028,
Jack Bell Building
University of British Columbia, Vancouver, BC

Institute for Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice, UBC

Plants have been profoundly queer players in modern projects of
describing "life" for ethical and political consideration. From their
taxonomic destabilizations of colonial order in the eighteenth century
to their questionings of agency in recent posthumanist discourses,
plants demand that we think about living, being, and becoming in ways
that interrupt anthropocentric, heteronormative figurings of agency,
futurity, and life generally.

This presentation will explore "botanical queerness" with an eye to
thinking through the complexity of humans' relations to plants beyond
habitual modes of address. Plants are not simply object of human
concern; they offer up modes of being, becoming, and living that have
been overlooked in more animal-centric accounts, and that point to a
more queer and ecological understanding of life in relation to power.

Dr. Catriona (Cate) Sandilands is Professor in the Faculty of
Environmental Studies, York University, where she teaches and writes
at the intersections of environmental humanities/ecocriticism, social
and political theory, and feminist/sexuality studies; she is also Vice
President of the Association for the Study of Literature and
Environment (ASLE). Among her many publications, she is the co-editor
of Queer Ecologies: Sex, Nature, Politics, Desire (Indiana, 2010) and
has written numerous articles and essays exploring different facets of
sexual/ecological intersection; her most recent writings on
plant-human relations will be collected in the forthcoming volume
Plantasmagoria: Plants and the Politics of Urban Habitats

Lunch will be provided to those who RSVP. RSVP here:

Ecofeminism and the Reproductive Strike

Tuesday, 28 October 2014
2:00 p.m.

At the time of the Chernobyl disaster in April 1986, the government of
Finland was planning to expand its nuclear power program with the
construction of a new reactor. As public opinion turned sharply
against nuclear, resistance to the project was led by a group of
feminists at the University of Tampere who organized a petition asking
women to pledge not to bear children for the next four years unless
the plans were abandoned. They rapidly garnered over 5,000 signatures,
and within months the government conceded.

Is the reproductive strike relevant to ecological struggle in the
North American context? Could it, for instance, be effective in a
potential campaign against the Alberta tar sands? Given Canada's
reliance on immigration (versus reproduction) for the expansion of its
labour force, would such a movement have any political leverage? And
would it be complicated by the ethnic diversity of the Canadian body
politic?

To address these questions, I examine the shifting cultural
significance of reproduction in the Canadian context, with a focus on
our transition, circa the 1970s, from a zeitgeist of nation-building
to one of market-building. Although a tactical reproductive strike
would present unique difficulties in the contemporary moment, I
suggest that it may nonetheless be effective in galvanizing critical
public discourse on the meaning of childrearing amidst ecological
crisis.
