FONDAZIONE CINI, VENICE
8 - 10 APRIL 2010
CALL FOR PROPOSALS
The Renaissance Society of America will hold its annual meeting in Los Angeles, March 19-21, 2009. This year's meeting contains an abundance of music presentations, in both music-only sessions and especially in interdisciplinary panels. For details, see the Society's website:
I'd also like to draw your attention to next year's meeting, which will take place in Venice at the Fondazione Cini on 8-10 April 2010. This will be a particularly good opportunity to get together with international as well as US colleagues, and I encourage as many AMS members as possible to submit proposals for papers or panels. The RSA's chronological span is quite broad, and papers on anything from 1400-1700 are welcome, as are those on contemporary approaches to the Renaissance (whether in the classroom or in more general culture).
As RSA representative for Music, it's my job to field a certain number of panels for the Venice meeting, which don't need to be exclusively devoted to music but should have at least one music paper. If you would like to submit a proposal or panel through me, or would like help assembling a panel, please let me know - I'm happy to help. Panels work best with 3 papers (not 4 as at AMS), but you can also construct a double panel of 6 papers if that's preferable. There is a 150 word limit for abstracts.
If you'd like me to submit your proposal, I need to have your materials before 15 May. Final deadline for proposals through the RSA website is 24 May (for details see http://www.rsa.org/meetings/conference_start.php
