Visiting Fellow, Magdalen College
Laurent Châtel

Laurent Châtel is working on the completion of a book on Beckford's orientalism, while continuing his field work on British gardens in view of a monograph on eighteenth-century garden history.

His current foray is the exploration of a connection between Georgian garden writing and practice with today's eco thinking, whether it be Gilles Clément's garden precepts or British ecological outlook.
