With the project reaching its midpoint as of now, we are ready to share the findings, ideas and difficulties we have encountered so far. To that end, we are organising an international conference to be held in Cascais - a charming coastal town 30 Km west of Lisbon - on 27-30 June 2018. We would like to invite colleagues working in the music from the aforementioned period to join us in the discussion.
Keynote speakers will include Agnese Pavanello (Schola Cantorum Basiliensis), Andrew Kirkman (University of Birmingham), and David Burn (KU Leuven). There will also be a concert by the Portuguese ensemble Polyphonos, and a concluding discussion panel on the conference main topics.
This conference is co-hosted by CESEM-Centre for the Study of the Sociology and Aesthetics of Music at the Lisbon Nova University through the FCT-funded project PTDC/CPC-MMU/0314/2014, and the Fundação Dom Luís I, Cascais.
Organizing committee: João Pedro d'Alvarenga, Esperanza Rodríguez-García, Nuno Mendonça Raimundo (CESEM), and Isabel de Alvarenga (Fundação Dom Luís I).
