Event Description

HERA Uses of the Past: Sound Memories conference

Sound Memories (SoundMe) is a collaborative research project funded by HERA under the recent call Uses of the Past. Running from 2016 to 2019, it brings together researchers and Associate Partners based in five European countries (Czech Republic, Netherlands, Poland, Switzerland, United Kingdom). The project explores the mechanisms by which Europeans of a distant past (c. 1200-1600) used collective musical memory to shape cultural and political behaviour. We also ask in which ways these mechanisms continue to be relevant to the societies of 21st-century Europe.


On Monday 28th and Tuesday 29th May 2018, the SoundMe teams present their research to scholars and to the general public. We shall discuss our work with experts in medieval and early modern studies from around the world, showcase the contributions of our Associate Partners, and go beyond the traditional academic conference format by exploring interactive and performative ways of sharing knowledge and research results.


A full conference ticket is priced at €100 and includes tea/coffee breaks and lunches. Day passes at €50 can also be purchased, and there is a 50% discount for students (ID required). The conference concert on Monday 28 May is free, but please note that registration is required.
