Conference: "Musical Culture in the Wars of Religion, 1550-1650" (Cambridge University, 17-18 March 2018)

Conference: "Musical Culture in the Wars of Religion, 1550-1650"

Conference outline

Music was a crucial battleground during the age of the Wars of Religion. In spite of this, historians and musicologists have rarely combined their approaches to try and understand the full significance that music had in the civil wars. Historians, for example, have primarily studied how music shaped confessional identities, such as when Protestants sang the Psalms together in worship or on the battlefield to express their solidarity and take comfort in their faith despite [...]

CFP: Music and Musicology in the Age of Post-Truth

By J. P. E. Harper-Scott from MUSICOLOGY-ALL List. Published on Feb 15, 2018.

****Forwarded message from Wolfgang Marx <wolfgang.marx@ucd.ie>****

Music and Musicology in the Age of Post-Truth

7-8 September 2018 University College Dublin

In recent months alternative facts, fake news and similar terms have become more and more commonplace among politicians, media and other public influencers alike in what is now often called the age of post-truth. Expertise appears to be discredited, gut feeling at least as important as facts, and facts themselves no longer valid and reliable. Often postmodernism and poststructuralism are blamed for the rise of a relativism that lies at the heart of post-truth attitudes. But is this really the [...]

thereby they may gain skills, knowledge, pleasure, companionship and so on.
Music provides the means for performing and creating identities, which

I would like to share with you my holographic music production, Tinderdust's The Forest of Phantasmagorias, which I will be unleashing at VAULT Festival in London on February 15th and 16th.

CFP: Music, Medievalism, and Modernism: Between Old and New

University of Huddersfield, 27-28 June 2018, In association with the Institute of Musical Research
