The 9th international conference at the Queluz National Palace organized by
DS-CEMSP aims to investigate the role of women in the musical and
theatrical worlds of the early modern age, with special reference to the
17th and 18th centuries. The conference promotes research into the careers
of women as impresarios, singers, actresses, composers, no matter how
resounding their activity was in their heydays. Emphasis is also placed on
their travels, contacts, and repertoires, and on the strategies adopted by
female patronage in order to support the organization (and the memory) of
theatrical and musical events throughout the continent.

TOPICS:

   - Female performers: singers, instrumentalists, dancers and impresarios.
   Their roles and repertoires.
   - Female composers, librettists and choreographers.
   - The feminine in music: women as subjects in the musical literature.
   - Women as music and theatre patrons. Political uses of female musical
   patronage.
   - The importance of music in the education of aristocratic and royal
   women.
   - The female public.
   - Women as music collectors.
   - Women and music sociabilities.

Scholars are invited to submit individual proposals. Papers shall not
exceed 20 minutes. Session proposals will be accepted as well: a maximum of
three or four papers will be taken into consideration, and the session
