‘After Idealism: Sound as Matter and Medium in the 19th Century’ 

17-18 March 2017, University of Cambridge


Conference details, registration & full programme: http://www.crassh.cam.ac.uk/events/26935

This conference aims to enlarge substantially our understanding of the dialogue between 19th-century music and natural science, examining in particular how a scientific-materialist conception of sound was formed alongside a dominant culture of romantic idealism. It takes as its subject sound as matter and medium, focusing on the domains of natural science, emergent technologies, sentient communication and acoustics.


Registration is now open via the conference site (£40 full fee -- £15 student or unwaged)
