Genre in Eighteenth-Century Music

Call for papers

The second biennial conference of the Society for Eighteenth-Century Music will be held 21–23 April 2006 in Williamsburg, Virginia. The theme for the meeting is "Genre in Eighteenth-Century Music." We encourage proposals for papers focusing on genre and related issues, especially how genres developed in theory and practice during the eighteenth century. In additional there will be at least one free session, during which topics concerning music and music-making in colonial America would be appropriate, and one session for project reports.

Proposals should be approximately 250 words, and only one submission per author will be considered. Papers should be limited to 20 minutes. The program committee will also accept proposals for two- or three-paper sessions on collaborative or related topics. Project reports should briefly describe research or a work in progress. Preference will be given to those authors who did not present a paper at the 2004 conference in Washington, DC.

Please submit your abstract by e-mail to Paul Corneilson. Be sure to include your name, address or institution, telephone, and e-mail address in the body of the message. All submissions will be acknowledged by return e-mail. Or mail your abstract to Paul Corneilson, Chair, SECM Program Committee, 11A Mt. Auburn Street, Cambridge, MA 02138. Deadline for submissions is 15 September 2005. Authors of accepted papers will be notified by the end of October.
