The program committee for Musicology at Kalamazoo (Anna Kathryn Grau,
Cathy Ann Elias, Daniel DiCenso) invites abstracts for the 51st
International Congress on Medieval Studies, May 12-15, 2016. The topics
include: Music & Liturgy: In Memory of Clyde Brockett; Music
Analysis; Music, Text, and Image; Musical Sources and Materiality; Music
and the Medieval Soundscape.
We hope these topics can foster
dialogue between musicologists and scholars in other areas, so we
encourage specialists in fields other than Music to submit proposals.
Please keep in mind that we intend these session titles mostly as
"hooks," rather than limitations, on which a multitude of proposals can
be placed, so send us your best work.
Abstracts should be submitted
by 15 September. Electronic submissions are strongly encouraged. Please
send submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org, and write in the subject
part of the e-mail the following: KZOO 2016. If you use US mail, send
material to: Anna Kathryn Grau, 5430 S. Drexel Ave., Apt. 3N, Chicago, IL 60615 You'll also need to complete and submit the “Participant Information Form” from the conference website, available at http://wmich.edu/medieval/congress/submissions/index.html#PIF. This is very important, not only because it is your only chance to make
A-V requests, but because it is required by the Medieval Institute. It
is available as either a Word or PDF document. If you have any
questions, please contact the committee at email@example.com. We
look forward to seeing you in Kalamazoo next May.
Musicology at Kalamazoo is a sponsoring organization of the International Congress on Medieval Studies held at Western Michigan University. We accept abstracts and organize sessions on any aspect of music in the Middle Ages, but areas of special interest are advertised in the annual Call for Papers, distributed in July. Abstracts are due September 1 each year.
