This very stimulating and successful conference, organized by Helen Hills, drew together leading art historians, architectural historians, philosophers, cultural historians, film theorists and scholars of French and Italian literature to consider the specific contours of the baroque, visual and non-visual, and especially the relationships between the baroque and the fold, allegory, melancholy, decoration and excess, time, history, and neo-baroque. A book is now being planned.
Speakers included: Andrew Benjamin (University of Technology, Sydney); Howard Caygill (Goldsmiths College, London); Tom Conley (Harvard); Thomas DaCosta Kaufmann (Princeton); Claire Farago (Boulder, Colorado); John Pinto (Princeton)
