Saturday March 31 9:00AM - 5:00PM 101 McCormick Hall

Architecture and Ritual in Early Modern Europe: Interdisciplinary Strategies of Interpretation brings together scholars from history, art and architectural history, architectural design, and music history to consider their different disciplines' modes of interpreting ritual activity in architectural and urban settings. Speakers in the morning session will address methodological and historiographical issues, while the afternoon session will feature case studies of ritual analysis. A speakers' roundtable following the afternoon session will address the various analytical approaches, with the aim of arriving at a more integrated view of architecture and ritual. Interested scholars and students will be invited to participate in the discussion.

Organized by John Beldon Scott
