Natascha Veldhorst, Assistant Professor Arts and Culture Studies at Radboud University Nijmegen, will elaborate on her project on music and novels.
What place music occupies in 17th-century novels, and how exactly music functions in these texts? In which ways did Dutch authors deviate from their European colleagues’ methods in incorporating songs and using musical scenes, references and characters? These are some of the fascinating issues that will be studied in this project.
