"Through the most intimate understanding of antiquity the German spirit has
acquired the ability to imitate the purely human in all its original
freedom, which it does, not by using classical forms to depict a particular
subject, but by using the classical view of the world to produce the new and
necessary form."
Wagner, What is German?

Wagner's music and writings engage with a tradition of thought which places
antiquity at the heart of a programme of social and cultural regeneration.
Nevertheless, his works effect a particular transformation of these
intellectual currents with far-reaching consequences for music, aesthetic
theory, cultural criticism, ideas of nation and revolutionary politics. The
conference seeks to explore both Wagner's own renewal of the classical past
and the problematic legacy he bequeathed to his successors.

We are delighted to be welcoming the following speakers:

(1) Prof. John Deathridge (Kings College London): "Wagner's Greeks - and
Wieland's too"
