June 18–21
Newberry Library, Chicago

The study and performance of early music (pre-1700) requires us to recreate and represent past musical practices through consulting a variety of sources available to us today. The theme of the conference seeks to encourage an interdisciplinary exploration of the ways in which we engage with these sources of and for early music and the degrees of mediation intrinsic to them. This symposium highlights perspectives from disciplines such as music theory and analysis, musicology, performance practice, the history of music theory, codicology, art history, and digital humanities that take into consideration the sources for music and music theory, broadly construed.

The call for proposals for the conference is now OPEN. We welcome submissions on any topic related to early music (broadly construed) with special preference given to those submissions that address the theme of the conference. The standard paper format will be 20-minute papers with 20 minutes for discussion, but we also welcome proposals for alternate formats or sessions, which will be evaluated case by case. All proposals must be submitted electronically. The submission deadline is 11:59 PM EST on February 16, 2020.

For more information and instructions on how to submit a proposal, visit the conference webpage here: https://www.newberry.org/06182020-music-theory-and-their-sources 

Co-sponsored by the Society for Music Theory’s Early Music Analysis Interest Group and organized by Ryan Taycher.
