Call For Papers: Musicology at Kalamazoo

The program committee for Musicology at Kalamazoo (Anna Kathryn Grau, Cathy Ann Elias, Daniel DiCenso) invites abstracts for the 50th International Congress on Medieval Studies, May 14-17, 2015. The topics include: Chant & Liturgy, Music & Polyphonic Practice, Music & Context, Music & Text, and The Materiality of Music.

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, and write in the subject part of the e-mail the following: KZOO 2015.

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 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 We look forward to seeing you in Kalamazoo next May.
