CONF: Words, Notes, and the Nineteenth Century, London, July 2007
- CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT
Words, Notes, and the Nineteenth Century
2-3 July 2007, Senate/Stewart House, University of London
Jointly hosted by the Institute of Musical Research and the Institute of Germanic and Romance Studies, School of Advanced Study, University of London
Focusing on a century that fostered a growth industry in musical writing of many kinds (musical novels, programme notes, musical poetry, music appreciation texts, journalism, scientific treatises, biography, etc.), this conference seeks to address how sound is conceptualized in various textual situations/locations between c. 1789 and 1914, and how we can best approach the relationships between music and text.
The conference aims to provide a broad interdisciplinary experience. In addition to 20-minute papers, the programme will include active learning and discussion about how we can cross between disciplines in scholarship and the classroom. The event will thus be particularly relevant to scholars and students embarking on interdisciplinary research and/or interdisciplinary teaching. The conference language will be English.
A call for papers will follow. In addition the conference will include round tables on the following topics:
Locating and using sources
Building bridges between the disciplines
Prof. Katharine Ellis (Director, IMR)
