Music and Late Medieval European Court Cultures

26-27 September 2019, Oxford
Faculty of Music, University of Oxford
Deadline: 5 May 2019.

The MALMECC project explores late medieval court cultures and the role of sounds and music in courtly life across Europe in a transdisciplinary, team-based approach that brings together art history, general history, literary history, and music history.

In the project conference, we hope to unite as many strands of court studies as possible and invite speakers from any discipline engaged with the long fourteenth century (c. 1280-1450) to join us in exploring phenomena of late medieval courtly life from a transdisciplinary angle. 


Submissions for papers may address (but need not be limited to) one or several of the following strands:

New and unusual methodological approaches to the study of European courts and court cultures

Blurring anachronistic boundaries set by modern scholarship

Consciously exploring the interstitial spaces of the sacred-secular, courtly-urban-rural, virtuous-obscene, courtly-uncourtly-pastoral

Forging links between liturgy, sound/music and space/architecture

Music and the senses at court

Space and place, visibility and invisibility, hearing and overhearing, silence and noise in late medieval courtly life

Gender, genealogies, sexualities, marriage and celibacy at secular and ecclesiastical courts

Court careers, courtly roles and their performativity

Court communications: speech and language, multilingualism, speaking and singing, crimes of speech and slander

Patronage, performance and cultural productions at courts: art, literature, music and entertainment, courtly diversions and their audiences

Memory, identity and lineage

Courtly ecologies of sounds, bodies, materials, identities, power

Economics of the court; the court and the city; the court and the countryside

The geography and limits of the court: boundaries, definitions, territories, institutions

Courtly alterity: courtly discourses on race, sexuality, (social) differences and disability

European courts and court studies in a global context
