Political, diplomatic, cultural and artistic relations (including music and the visual arts) between Rome and Lisbon in the 18th century have, at different times, aroused the interest of several scholars. However, these research fields have often been approached in parallel paths within the traditions of each of the disciplines, without establishing in most cases a true dialogue between the different areas of knowledge and disregarding cross-cutting issues. On the other hand, the study of artistic relations and cultural transfers presupposes an in-depth and up-to-date view of the historical and social context of each city in their own peculiarities. This international conference intends to promote new approaches to the history of music and the arts through multidisciplinary dialogue that involves different points of view. With this aim, we invite researchers at any stage of their career, with backgrounds ranging from different fields (such as political, economic, cultural and arts history, musicology, literature and philosophy, among others) to send us a proposal.
Deadline for proposal submission : January 10th, 2019
