The workings of the corporeal and spiritual body were repeatedly reimagined in France between 1789 and 1848, as successive revolutions fundamentally transformed understandings of bodily autonomy and moral responsibility. Bringing together scholars from the fields of musicology, performance studies, literature, and the history of science and medicine, this conference examines the interaction between music, science, and medicine in Paris in the aftermath of revolutionary upheavals.
