“The Intermedia Restoration” is a one-day conference that takes the interdisciplinary conversation in media history back to an especially vibrant intersection: the English Restoration, c. 1660-1700. This conference will bring together scholars working across art history, musicology, literary study, and other disciplines to think collaboratively about this historical moment.
We are seeking papers that explore the intermedia Restoration through questions such as: What theoretical and methodological shifts do we need to better understand this period's media ecology? How might we reimagine the concept of the seventeenth-century “baroque” in fresh, interdisciplinary ways? What new histories of religion and politics can we connect to media interplay? How can transnational histories of slavery and colonization be more fully integrated into our conceptions of Restoration aesthetics and media cultures? How might we think through the period's failures and breakdowns in media interactivity?
We invite proposals for 10- or 20-minute presentations, and we welcome a broad variety of topics and methodological approaches from disciplines including literary studies, musicology, history, art history, theater and performance studies, philosophy, cultural studies, religious studies, rhetoric, gender and sexuality studies, and critical theory.
Please submit 500‐word abstracts to Scott Trudell (trudell -at- umd.edu) by September 1, 2017.
