The Royal Historical Society has been active in exploring alliances with related fields and with the learned societies that represent them. In March 2005 a conference will take place in Cambridge to examine the relationships between the disciplines of history and of musicology and to consider fresh ways of understanding music broadly defined as a historical phenomenon. What sorts of partnerships can we envisage between historians and those whose central concern is music? How does an understanding of music contribute to the analysis of general historical structures and patterns? The meeting is being organised by the Royal Historical Society in association with the Royal Musical Association and will be held at the Centre for Research in Arts, Social Sciences and Humanities (CRASSH) at the University of Cambridge.
