CFP: The visual representation of speech, sound, and noise from Antiquity to the Renaissance, Chartres, 11-13 June 2015

Call for papers : Musiconis Conference, 11, 12, and 13 June 2015 in Chartres
� The visual representation of speech, sound, and noise from Antiquity to the Renaissance �

Since 2011, the Musiconis group has been studying the representation of sound, as a symbol in the visual arts and in its literal depiction in images of vocal, instrumental, and choreographic performance in the Middle Ages. The Musiconis conference seeks to expand the central questions of the project both chronologically, by encompassing the period from classical antiquity to the Renaissance, and theoretically, by taking into account all types of visual representation (figurative, mathematical, graphic, calligraphic, epigraphic, coloristic, ornamental, etc.)

Conference presentations may address all visual media, from monumental art to objects and manuscript illumination. 20-minute papers will be presented in French or in English on June 11-13 in the auditorium of the H�tellerie Saint-Yves near the Cathedral of Chartres.

To propose a paper, send an abstract of no more than 3000 characters to Fr�d�ric Billiet (frederic.billiet at gmail.com) and Isabelle Marchesin (isabelle.marchesin at gmail.com) by January 31, 2015. The acts of the conference will be published.
