musicologie   Lundi 7 octobre 2019

66th Annual Meeting of the Renaissance Society of America

April 2-4, 2020, Philadelphia
CFP: deadline 15 August 2019

If you are a musicologist whose research pertains to the period 1300–1700, please consider attending this conference, since the RSA’s meetings are a particularly good opportunity to meet colleagues from other disciplines. I encourage as many AMS members as possible to submit proposals for papers or panels on topics ranging from the fourteenth to the seventeenth centuries, especially topics that can foster dialogue between musicologists and scholars in other fields.

The RSA website has a series of CFP blogs for organizing panels - please browse the calls or post one yourself, especially if you’d like to participate in a multidisciplinary panel.

Please note: the dates for proposal submissions shifted last year and the policy for membership terms and renewal have also been revised. The submission module will open on the RSA website on 1 July. The final submission deadline is 15 August.

As the RSA’s Representative for Music, I can assist with organizing sessions and drawing together panel themes. Additionally, it is my job to field a certain number of panels and submit them directly. Calls for these panels are listed on the CFP blogs at the RSA website (with an earlier deadline of 31 July 2019):

* The Sense of Hearing: Acoustics, Perception, Metaphor, and Judgment

* The Early Modern Afterlives of Ancient Musicians

* Musical Exchange: Instruments, Books, and Ideas

* Playing Games: Composition and Performance as Pastime

* Music Outside the Walls: Performing the Rural, Sylvan, and Wild

In keeping with the spirit of the RSA’s aim to foster scholarly discourse across disciplinary boundaries, papers that cultivate dialogue between musicology and other fields of study (art history, classics, history, literary studies, etc.) are especially welcome.

I look forward to hearing from you.
