Boston College to Attract International Musicology Scholars for July Conference

An international group of musicologists will convene at Boston College to discuss the sonic cultures of Early Modern Catholicism (c.1500–1750). 
Scholars from nine different countries will demonstrate the unique insights that can be gained about Early Modern Catholicism from the study of music and sound. 
Keynote addresses will be offered by John O’Malley, S.J. (Georgetown University), and Robert L. Kendrick (The University of Chicago).
The conference will also feature a round table (chaired by T. Frank Kennedy, S.J.) concerning the role of the Jesuits and their networks in the creation of Catholic soundscapes.
