Saturday, November 20, 2010 - 1:10pm
Institute of Letters and Human Sciences, University of Minho, Braga, Portugal

Music will be the starting point for this international conference, which aims to adopt and to explore a transdisciplinary attitude, following two main lines of approach. On the one hand, to identify, define and reflect upon the various types of verbal discourses – linguistic, literary, political, philosophical, among others – and examine their diverse relationship to music. On the other hand, and building on this relationship, to characterize it through the concept of power, analysing the various types of power (emotional, aesthetic and political) that music possesses, both individually and/or in association with other forms; namely the power itself of music in the formation and transformation of discourses.

Children and Childhood in the English Renaissance

Saturday, November 20, 2010 - 5:15am
University of Siegen

Despite the fact that the terms "child" and "childhood" have inspired scholars of various disciplines and ages, the representation of childhood in the time of the English Renaissance remains an under-investigated topic. The reasons for this oversight are manifold. Although Philip Ariès's thesis that childhood was discovered in the eighteenth century has meanwhile been revised (see, for instance, Orme and Hanwalt on the Middle Ages, or Pollock on the Early Modern Period), comprehensive studies of childhood in the Renaissance are still comparatively scarce.
