Call for Papers
In order to celebrate the refurbishment and the reopening in spring 2023 of the Handel House Museum at 25 Brook Street (Handel & Hendrix in London) and also the tercentenary of the composer moving into the property in 1723, The Handel Institute has brought forward its next conference to 2023. The paper sessions (18–19 November) will take place at Bridewell Hall; the conference committee is also planning to schedule a reception and tour at the Handel & Hendrix Museum, and an event at The Foundling Museum.
The committee now invites proposals for papers on any aspect of the life or works of Handel or his associates, while also particularly welcoming offers of papers on his relationships with countries, cities, churches, courts, theatres and other places or spaces that he knew. Abstracts of up to 300 words for papers lasting not more than thirty minutes should be sent to Dr Natassa Varka ([email protected]) by 31 May 2023. All applicants will be contacted as soon as possible thereafter.
