Scholars are invited to submit proposals for the Sixth Biennial North American Conference on Nineteenth-Century Music. Proposals for individual papers, panels, poster presentations, and lecture-recitals on all topics relating to the history, analysis, and reception of music during the long nineteenth century
(ca. 1789–1914) will be considered.
The committee especially welcomes proposals that deal with:
- Digital Humanities
- Materialist approaches to music and music culture
- Issues of social identity
- Performance and pedagogical approaches to nineteenth-century music in the twenty-first century
- Music and the emergence of mass media in the long nineteenth century
- Musicians celebrating anniversaries (e.g., Carl Loewe, Hector Berlioz, Clara Schumann)
Proposals will be reviewed anonymously.
All presentations will be allotted 40 minutes, including questions and discussion; therefore, papers should be kept to 25 minutes. Lecture-recitals will be allotted up to 60 minutes at the discretion of the program committee.
Travel, housing, and registration information will be available on the conference website.
