Ancient Greek and Roman music : current approaches and new perspectives
APA 146TH annual meeting January 8-11, 2015, New Orleans, LA
Date limite : 1er février 2014
Organized by Pauline LeVen, Yale University
Sponsored by MOISA: Society for the Study of Greek and Roman Music and Its Cultural Heritage
Ancient Greek and Roman music, song, and dance is currently an area of academic growth. Recent conferences and collected volumes on performance, sound, the chorus, the aesthetics of mousikē, modern musical reception, and various aspects of lyric poetry illustrate the diversity of methods and approaches in the field: from classical philology, philosophy, material and cultural history, performance studies, and music history to anthropology, history of religion, cultural studies and reception, archeology, papyrology, epigraphy and iconography.
For its inaugural APA panel, MOISA invites scholars interested in any aspect of ancient Greek and Roman music and its cultural heritage to present papers devoted to current approaches to ancient music (understood in its largest sense) and new perspectives on the topic.
We are especially keen on establishing a dialogue with scholars from different fields and to examine the interactions between music and other dimensions of ancient culture (science, visual arts, archaeology, etc.).
