Haydn Society of North America Mini-Conference
9–10 November 2022, New Orleans
A conference of the Haydn Society of North America (HSNA) will take place Wednesday, November 9 and Thursday morning, November 10, at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside Hotel, immediately prior to the meeting of the American Musicological Society / Society for Music Theory. We are seeking proposals based on any research relating to the world and music of Joseph Haydn and his near contemporaries. Presentations that have been accepted for the AMS/SMT conference itself may not be read at this conference. Papers read at the conference may be solicited for publication in HAYDN: Online Journal of the Haydn Society of North America.
Scholars are invited to submit proposals for individual papers or lecture-performances. Papers and presentations should not exceed twenty minutes.
Additionally, ten minutes will be allotted for discussion. The abstract should be no more than 400 words. It should articulate the most important aspects of the research, discuss the relationship of the work to previous scholarship, and describe the significance and potential future usefulness of the findings. Furthermore, proposals should indicate (a) type of presentation (paper or lecture-performance), and (b) any equipment or technical requirements. On a separate page, please give the presenter's name together with institutional affiliation or place of residence.
The year 2022 marks the 250th anniversary of Haydn’s composition of the “Sun” Quartets and “Farewell” Symphony. We are happy to consider any submissions that focus on these and other works completed during 1772.
