Alain Touwaide, historian of botany, medicine, and medicinal plants, explores related topics in a four-part seminar series. The theme for the 2020 season is Reading Historical Gardens, with monthly sessions focusing on gardens in ancient Rome and Pompeii, Byzantium and the Arabic world, and Europe in the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Touwaide is the author of multiple publications on these topics and teaches at UCLA.
