The origin of the Society for European Festivals Research

EARLY DEVELOPMENT (2000)

In September 2000, the European Science Foundation funded a conference, led by Ronnie Mulryne (University of Warwick) and Helen Waranabe-O'Kelly (Exeter College, University of Oxford), in its European Research Conferences Series (EURESCO). The conference, 'COURT FESTIVALS OF THE EUROPEAN RENAISSANCE; ART, POLITICS AND PERFORMANCE', took place at Castelvecchio Pascoli, Nr Lucca, Tuscany and attracted international scholars (both early career and experienced).
