The last forty years of scholarly research on the Eighteenth century and on
the Enlightenment have deeply modified, enriched and maybe also confused
our understanding of that century, softening the disciplinary boundaries
and bringing social, gender and economic issues to the fore.

What impact, if any, have these studies had (or could these studies have)
on the history and study of XVIIIth Century Musical Aesthetics? Is it still
possible to pursue the study of XVIIIth Century Musical Aesthetics as if it
were a separate, independent, autonomous realm?

This International conference wishes to tackle these issues, in order to
build a more complex and varied picture of XVIIIth Century Musical
Aesthetics and to further a fruitful dialogue between musicologists and
eighteenth century scholars coming from other disciplinary perspectives.

We invite proposals for 20-minute papers. Please email abstracts of no more
than 500 words to msemi -at- unito.it by the 30th of July 2017*.*
Acceptance of proposals will be confirmed by the 30th of September.

Please read the complete call on the conference’s website.
