Contributed by admin on Apr 29, 2016

"The Society for Seventeenth-Century Music will hold its Twenty-Fifth Annual Conference from Thursday through Sunday, 20–23 April 2017, in Providence, RI, hosted by the Department of Music at Providence College. Proposals on all aspects of seventeenth-century music and its cultural contexts are welcome. Presentations may take a variety of formats, including individual papers 20 minutes in length, lecture-recitals (45 minutes), workshops involving group participation, roundtable discussions, and panel sessions. ...

All presenters must be members in good standing of the Society. A presenter cannot give an individual paper at two consecutive meetings, nor make more than one presentation at a single meeting. For individual papers, abstracts not exceeding 350 words should clearly represent the title, subject and argument, and should indicate the significance of the findings. Proposals for presentations in other formats should be of a similar length; they should clearly state and justify the intended format, and should indicate the originality and significance of the material to be delivered. Those for lecture-recitals must include online links to recordings of the proposed performer(s) playing examples of the same repertory if not the exact proposed work(s), as well as short biographies. Those for panel sessions or roundtable discussions must include the names of intended participants and some indication of their contribution."

Proposals should be sent by e-mail (deadline: midnight, EST, 1 October 2016) to the Program Committee, <cartert -at->.
