Society for Music Theory/American Musicological Society 2018 Joint Meeting
Proposed Special Session: “Absolute Music Before 1700: Textless Repertoires and Practices”
Hidden between the masses, motets, chansons, and madrigals most frequently encountered in performances and analyses of early music is a wealth of repertoires not predicated upon the transmission of a text. These dances, ricercars, canons, musical enigmas, and examples from treatises and didactic manuals, to name a few, offer the analyst the opportunity to focus on the notes, set aside the extramusical complications of text-music relationships, and consider the nature of absolute music in early music traditions. In order to foster dialogue on methodological approaches to these repertoires, the SMT Early Music Analysis Interest Group will propose a special session for the 2018 joint meeting of SMT and AMS (1-4 November 2018, San Antonio, TX).
The interest group invites proposals examining works from a textless tradition before 1700 for presentations in the form of twenty-minute papers or alternative format presentations (e.g., presentations with a performance aspect, workshops) of thirty minutes. Submissions should include a proposal of 350 words or less explaining the subject, approach, thesis, and findings, and may include up to four pages of additional materials (musical examples, bibliography, etc.). Proposals should be submitted as an anonymous PDF attachment, and the accompanying email should include the presenter’s name, institutional affiliation (if applicable), format (20-minute paper, workshop, etc.), equipment needs, and interest in potentially using live performers.
Questions and submissions should be directed to Benjamin Dobbs (Benjamin.Dobbs -at- furman.edu). The deadline for submissions is 12/15/17 at 11:59 pm (EST).
