Conference: Music and the Stars

Music and the Stars: mathematics in medieval Ireland

RSAI First international conference on the history of science in medieval Ireland

National Library of Ireland, 17–18 July 2012

The event is a 2-day interdisciplinary conference on the history of science in medieval Ireland. Papers, delivered by an international panel of speakers, will elaborate the model of mathematics provided by medieval education, with reference to extant manuscripts of Irish provenance. Discussions of the mathematical content of the great artistic and literary achievements of the period will be included. Papers will also explore the manner in which a truly interdisciplinary approach, inspired by this model, may be applied to education today.

Speakers include: Charles Burnett (Warburg Institute, London), Howard Clarke (RIA), Siobhán Fitzpatrick (RIA), David Howlett (Oxford), Dáibhí Ó Cróinín (NUI Galway), Maura Ó Cróinín (NUI Galway), Pádraig P. Ó Néill (Chapel Hill, North Carolina), Marina Smyth (Univ. of Notre Dame), Robert Stevick (Univ. of Washington), Immo Warntjes (Univ. of Greifswald).

The cost of the conference is €50 per person. For further details and to book a place please contact niamh@rsai.ie

Resources: Medieval Song Network

A new AHRC-funded Research Network in Medieval Song has been launched at the Institute of Musical Research by Ardis Butterfield (University College London) and Helen Deeming (Royal Holloway, University of London). The network aims to bring together scholars from a range of disciplines, including (but not limited to) music, literature, manuscript studies, history, art history, and modern languages, with interests in medieval song. New members are always welcome and anyone interested is warmly encouraged to visit the Network’s webpages (http://music.sas.ac.uk/research-groups/medieval-song-network.html – soon to be replaced with a new interactive site), and contact either of the convenors: a.butterfield@ucl.ac.uk and helen.deeming@rhul.ac.uk .
