Sight and Sound
February 10, 2016
Dr. Eleonora Beck, James W. Rogers Professor of Music, has been selected to participate in a week-long seminar on Teaching European Art in Context this summer entitled, “Sight and Sound in Renaissance and Baroque Europe (c. 1300-1700)”.
Made possible by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation and hosted by the Council of Independent Colleges (CIC), this seminar will be held at the High Museum of Art in Atlanta, Georgia. After a competitive nomination, application, and review process, just 20 faculty members from institutions around the country were invited to participate in this course.
The seminar will be co-led by two noted scholars of the period: art historian Gary Radke and musicologist Amanda Winkler, and “will explore how viewers and listeners experienced art and music in the Renaissance and Baroque periods.” Dr. Beck’s research often explores the intersections of Renaissance music, art, and literature; in addition to complementing her research interests, Dr. Beck’s participation in the seminar will contribute directly to courses in the History of Western Music and an Advanced Seminar in Music.
