I post the following for Dr Christine Joynes. This looks like a very interesting conference; I think I may go along myself:
Colleagues are warmly invited to attend the conference ‘Perspectives on the Passion’, 18-20 March 2005 at Trinity College, Oxford.
The aim of the conference is to bring together an international group of scholars from across the Humanities to explore the use and influence of the passion narratives in different fields, namely art, music, literature and theology.
Speakers include Neil MacGregor, Regina Schwartz, Robin Jensen, Sara Maitland, John Butt, Henry Mayr-Harting, J.R.Watson, Tim Gorringe, Jaime Lara, PeterHawkins, Emma Hornby, Peter McCullough, Philip Cunningham, William Flynn and Mark Goodacre.
This promises to be an exciting event, and in addition to a rich and varied programme of papers the conference includes an exhibition by contemporary Cambridge artist Kip Gresham and a concert by A Capella Portuguesa on the theme of the passion narratives.
Please find attached the booking form and the provisional conference programme. Early booking is advisable.
