*XXIst Century Challenges to the History of XVIIIth Century Musical Aesthetics* *Call for papers* Dates: 11-12 June 2018 Venue: University of Turin (Italy) Organizers: Maria Semi – Alberto Rizzuti *Proposal deadline*: 30 July 2017 Conference website: https://xviiithcenturymusicalaesthetics.wordpress.com/ *Keynote speakers*: Vanessa Agnew, Suzanne Aspden, Philip Bohlman, Tomas McAuley 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. _______________________________________________ AMS-Announce mailing list and bulletin board: READ THE GUIDELINES prior to submitting a post: http://www.ams-net.org/announce.php TO SEE THE ARCHIVED POSTS: http://listserv.unl.edu/cgi-bin/wa?A0=AMS-ANNOUNCE TO UNSUBSCRIBE, or switch to/from Digest mode: log in to http://listserv.unl.edu and edit your subscription.
