Appel à contribution : Arts, Ideas, & the Baroque

This conference seeks to examine the « baroque » in the early modern world as well as its echoes and resonances across time. Defined differently by different academic traditions, the notion of the baroque remains a point of reference as well as contention, and a signifier of cultural legacy as well as innovation, as in the notion of the “neo-baroque”. We propose to investigate the rich artefacts, representations, and influence of the era, particularly around the theme of Deadly Sins (also the theme of the 2011 Montreal Baroque Festival to be held in conjunction with this conference). Proposals for complete panels as well as for individual papers in English or French are welcome.

Institute for the Public Life of Arts and Ideas, McGill University, en collaboration avec le Montreal Baroque Festival.
