About: The publication of The Routledge Companion to Music and Visual Culture in 2014 reexamined the diversity and breadth of the interdisciplinary study of music and the visual arts, drawing together the various threads of scholarship that have emerged over the past two decades. The 2016 “Confluences, Connections, and Correspondences: Music and Visual Culture Conference” will reflect on the issues and questions raised by this significant publication. Presenting on various theories, methodologies, and frameworks, this conference seeks to bring together wide-ranging, multidisciplinary, and inclusive approaches to the study of these disciplines in conjunction with one another.
