GLORIOUS SOUNDS: EXPLORING THE SOUNDSCAPES OF BRITISH NONCONFORMITY: 1550-1800

About this Event

This major two day multi-disciplinary conference hosted by The International John Bunyan Society, seeks to explore the various ways that sound impacted the lives and writings of early modern Nonconformists and, in turn, their spiritual practices. It will consider not only religious songs/sermons/catechisms but the sacred/profane sounds made in houses, streets, marketplaces, prisons, theatres, inns, palaces and fields. How did godly noises/speeches/music compete with and/or complement one another? Did the propinquity of households/meeting houses/churches hinder or help religious worship? How were the same prayers and sermons spoken/heard differently? Did silence, or its lack thereof, effect the delivery/auditory of God’s Word? In short, what sounds defined and defied British Nonconformity?

This event features notable academics: Vera J. Camden, John Craig, Robert W. Daniel, Mary Fairclough, Eleanor Hedger, Rosamund Oates, Rosamund Paice, and Matthew Stanton.

Registration is free, but please consider either becoming a member of the International John Bunyan Society or making a small donation to the society.

Following registration, correspondence for the event will be delivered through Eventbrite. Please lookout for emails containing access links to the live events.

This conference is organised in association with University of Bedfordshire, Keele University, Loughborough University, Northumbria University and the University of Warwick.
