Call for papers – “Historiography on the notion and category of “baroque”

As members of a research team, the Grihl (Groupe de recherches interdisciplinaires sur l’histoire du littéraire) integrated in the Centre de Recherches Historiques at the École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales in Paris, we are participating in the ENBaCH project, European Network for Cultural Heritage Baroque (http://enbach.besmart.it/).

Within this framework, we would like to achieve a publication devoted to the historiography of the notion and category of “baroque” in every field (literature, art, philosophy, history, etc.). Papers written in English, Spanish, Italian or in any other European language will be welcome.

This publication will constitute an issue of the online journal of our research center (Les Dossiers du Grihl*), it is also dedicated to be available on the ENBaCH portal. It would be the opportunity to diversify the approaches and to try to cover the European area, dealing the very notion of Baroque within a historical perspective.

If you want to participate, please send us your proposal (10-20 lines) as soon as possible. The deadline for submitting papers is planned for September 2011.

Of course, don’t hesitate to ask us any additional information which you would like to know

With best regards,

Jean-Pierre Cavaillé (cavaille@ehess.fr)  and Cécile Soudan (csoudan@ehess.fr), for the editorial board of Les Dossiers du GRIHL
