5-7 April 2018, London
Call for Papers
CFP Deadline: November 6, 2017
an academic session within the Association for Art History Annual Conference
Conference venue: Courtauld Institute of Art and Kings College London, UK
There is a long and fruitful scholarly tradition of exploring the relationships between art and music. Amongst other things, the study of both entails working with objects, spaces and practices that are profoundly embodied, sensory and emotional. To work with and between art and music means becoming acutely attuned to the visceral as much as to the analytical. Yet there is still more to be gained. Recently, when commenting on the relationship between art history and musicology, Jonathan Hicks speculated that ‘it may be precisely in attending to the locations of expressive culture – whether noisy, spectacular, or a combination of these and more – that our disciplines might find most common ground’. Our strand will explore this proposition. What may be learned from focusing on how music and sound – or even the silent evocation of sound – is framed by places, spaces, objects, rituals and other performative contexts and vice versa? More broadly, how does this common ground helps us to map out and explore the problems and challenges currently facing art historians who work with music and musicologists working with art? For example, is it still a problem that many of our current methods of enquiry have come from studies of European modernism? What happens when they are applied to earlier periods and/or different cultural contexts?
We welcome papers that address these and cognate issues, from any period and anywhere.
