Workshop organisé par Pr Graeme Boone, LE STUDIUM Marie Skłodowska-Curie Research Fellow (Ohio State University - USA) & Pr Philippe Vendrix (CESR, CNRS, University François Rabelais of Tours - FR)

The relationship between music and emotions between the late 14th and early 16th centuries is a hot topic today, being approached by a steadily increasing number of scholars from diverse points of view. It is an era commonly understood to have witnessed the final flowering of 'medieval' music and literature, simultaneously with the proliferation of new, 'Renaissance' trends in learning and the arts; and it was a time of great ferment in the exploration of, and reflection on, emotions as they relate to musical expression and identity. Four specialists have been invited to guide a conversation that embraces different approaches to this rich topic of investigation, particularly as regards the idea and manifestations of 'song,' with its connections to vocality, literature, poetics, aesthetics, philosophy, music theory, and music analysis, and its relevance to both French and Italian environments. Readings will be made available beforehand, in order to maximize shared understandings and optimize discussions among the invited speakers, faculty, students, and public.
