Seminar “ENTRADES REIALS A BARCELONA, 1500-1700”, Barcelona, MUHBA, 24 & 31 January 2019

Al llarg dels segles, les entrades reials foren moments essencials que reflectien, mitjançant la posada en escena, les relacions polítiques entre la monarquia i la ciutat. Les entrades tenien una naturalesa doble: formaven part de les festivitats urbanes alhora que constituïen el cicle festiu i de celebracions de la monarquia. Especialment, representaven un moment idoni per a l’escenificació i la projecció del poder monàrquic. Així, la cerimònia de l’entrada reial, simbiosi de processó cívica i religiosa a la vegada, esdevenia una ocasió única per a la negociació política, social i fins i tot identitària. Aquest seminari reuneix experts en la història de la cultura de la ciutat de Barcelona a l’edat moderna.

Workshop on Sounds and Spaces: The Future of Urban Musicology, 25 October 2018

Workshop on Sounds and Spaces: The Future of Urban Musicology
as part of the Humanities in Transition Conference organized by the Institució Milà i Fontanals–CSIC at the Palau Macaya, Barcelona
Thursday 25 October 2018, 17.30-1900hh
Co-ordinator: Tess Knighton (ICREA / IMF–CSIC)
Participants: Isabel María Ayala Herrera (Universidad de Jaén); Lluis Bertran (Barcelona); Simone Caputo (Università La Sapienza di Roma); Ferrán Escrivà Llorca (Universitat de Jaume I de Castellón), María Rosa de Luca (Università di Catania); Javier Marín-Lopez (Universidad de Jaén), Ascensión Mazuela-Anguita (Universidad de Granada); Virginia Sánchez López (Universidad de Jaén)

Urban musicology is already established as  a major line of inquiry within the Humanities. By nature transdisciplinary, relevant to all periods and with a global reach, urban musicology offers a conceptual portal into many fundamental aspects of social and cultural practice. It affords a way forward for the study of the complex dynamic between space, acoustic, sound, ritual, ceremony, performance, daily experience, emotional impact and expression, and social identity. To date most studies have focused on individual urban centres with little development of the potential for a comparative approach, whether synchronically or diachronically and whether at local, regional, national or global levels. This workshop offers the opportunity to discuss how a comparative approach might be developed, both conceptually and through the use of the tools for data collection and analysis that form part of the digital humanities.  The workshop will include some case studies, and will also address the wider theoretical issues.
