CFP: “Iberian Musical Crossroads Through the Ages” (Barcelona)

The Brook Center’s Research Center for Music Iconography (RCMI) is putting on a conference at Barcelona’s Societat Catalana de Musicologia in October of 2018. The conference, Iberian Musical Crossroads Through the Ages: Images of Music Making in their Trans-cultural Exchange “will examine visual sources documenting transborder and transcultural transmission of musical ideas between the peoples of the Iberian Peninsula and the rest of the world.” Spain’s many historical “explorations and migrations created a fertile framework for a rich exchange of musical ideas, sounds, forms, rhythms, dances, and instruments.”

Paper proposals will be accepted through April 2, 2018. You may view the full CFP on the conference’s page.

Barcelona, 17–19 October 2018
