The program committee welcomes a diversity of methodological and disciplinary perspectives on opera and musical theater in the United States, including their precedents. From the imported and home-grown ballad operas of the 18th century to the musical skits and highbrow/lowbrow parodies of minstrelsy, from opera in the immigrant experience to contemporary productions at the Met or Broadway, we seek a cross sectional glance at the rich and diverse history and culture of our subject. We welcome perspectives from across the spectrum of musicological investigation including (but not limited to) those based on an ethnographical, historical, pedagogical, performance studies, sociological, or theoretical approaches.
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
Presentations may take the form of traditional paper presentations, panel sessions, roundtable discussions, posters, or lecture recitals. Authors of the strongest papers will be invited to revise their work into critical essays for a projected book-length collection.
To be considered, submit a 250-word abstract and 50-word biography to Joseph.Morgan -at- mtsu.edu by November 1, 2017. Presenters will be notified in early January, 2018 of the status of their proposal.
