The Gothic Revolution: Music in Western Europe, 1100–1300



The Gothic Revolution: Music in Western Europe, 1100–1300

Princeton University, 4–6 Nov. 2011


On 4–6 November 2011, the Music Department at Princeton University will host a conference devoted to the history of polyphony in Western Europe in the 12th and 13th centuries.


The aim is to provide as broad a sampling as possible of scholarship currently ongoing in this area, to invite discussion of future research goals and priorities, and to promote the setting up of collaborative projects and networks.


We invite proposals on any topic related to Western European polyphony in the period 1100–1300 (including the survival of this repertory in later sources). Scholars in the early stages of their career are warmly encouraged to submit proposals.


The keynote address will be delivered by Professor Mark Everist.


Abstracts of no more than 500 words may be sent by November 15 to the organizer of the conference, Rob C. Wegman,
