CFP: 45th Intl. Congress on Medieval Studies (Kalamazoo)

13 -16 MAY 2010

The program committee for Musicology at Kalamazoo is pleased to announce the following sessions for the 45th International Congress on Medieval Studies, May 13-16, 2010:
I. Motets and the Like;
II. Musical Instruments and Performance;
III. The Music Theorist as Polymath;
IV. Text(s) and Music, Music(s) and Text;
V. Chant and Liturgy;
VI. Performances: Indoors and Outdoors;
VII. Music and Visual Culture;
VIII. Medievalisms and Music: Yesterday and Today;
IX. Source Studies

We hope many if not all of these sessions can foster some real dialogue between musicologists and scholars in other areas, so we encourage specialists in fields other than Music to submit proposals. Please keep in mind as well that we intend these session titles mostly as "hooks" on which a multitude of proposals can be placed rather than limitations, so send us your best work (as the editors of JAMS are fond of saying), even if it doesn't precisely seem to fit one of these topics--we may be able to make it work anyway, and we'll try to find a place for as many good proposals as we can.

Abstracts should be sent by 13 September to Cathy Ann Elias, program committee chair, at the address below. Electronic submissions are welcome. Please write in the subject part of the e-mail the following: KZOO 2010 (Please send submissions to musicology.kzoo at

You'll also need to complete and submit the “Participant Information Form” from the conference website, available at This is very important, not only because it is your only chance to make A-V requests, but because it is required by the Medieval Institute. Please note that the form appears at the bottom of the page. Be aware that this is a PDF document; if you don't have Adobe Acrobat (the writer, not just the reader) on your computer, you cannot save a completed form, so you'll have to print it and send it via snail-mail or fax.

If you have any questions, please contact Cathy Ann Elias. We look forward to seeing you in Kalamazoo next May.
