The Glorious Gardens of Spain and Portugal – 2017

This coming May I will have the opportunity to travel abroad with a small group of students and faculty from my university to tour historic landscapes, gardens, and architecture across Spain and Portugal.  As part of the trip, I will be keeping a small side blog for those interested in following along on our adventures.

The Glorious Gardens of England and Scotland – 2014

In August of 2014 I had the opportunity to spend roughly three weeks roaming England and Scotland (with a brief jog into Wales) under the direction of Garry Menendez and Brad Collett, faculty members at the University of Tennessee.  A link to the trip blog, curated by two former MLA students, can be found below.
