Indian Gardens: KFG Post-Doc Sara Keller on ZDF Terra X History

Historian and building archaeologist Sara Keller currently conducts a research project on Water and Water places in urban South Asia in the framework of the KFG “Religion and Urbanity: Reciprocal Formations” (FOR 2779). In this regard, she is particularly looking at gardens and green landscapes as unique spaces of urbanity.

Her paper “Der frühe südasiatische Garten. Sinnlichkeit und Spiritualität rund um die Stadt” discusses the features of early gardens in the Indian subcontinent, while her upcoming article on “Alternative Urbanities. Mapping gardens and reservoirs in pre-modern Indian cities (the case of Vadnagar)” is forthcoming in Religion and Urbanity Online.

She recently contributed to Terra X History – Der Podcast’s new episode Gärtnern: zwischen Schreber und Guerilla, which covers the practice and concept of gardening. You can listen to the podcast here:
