Call for papers

The organ in context - 22 February 2003


Proposals for papers are invited for the British Institute of Organ
Studies (BIOS) research conference in Reading on Saturday 22 February
2003.

The proposals should present an aspect of organ history in a wider context
that may include the other arts (e.g. literature, painting, theatre,
architecture) and wider musical contexts (opera, orchestral music,
concerto). You do not need to limit yourself to these ideas, which are
suggested by way of illustration of the broad range of subjects that will
be considered.

Papers should be between 20 and 25 minutes in length, and the use of
musical and pictorial illustrations is encouraged.

Proposals of 200 words, along with a brief biographical note, should be
sent by 31 September 2002 to Dr Christopher Kent, Department of Music,
University of Reading, 35 Upper Redlands Road, Reading, RG1 5JE, email
c.j.kent@reading.ac.uk, phone +44-(0)118 931 8416.

Successful proposals will be notified by 30 October 2002.

Enquiries to Christopher Kent (address above) or to David Knight, email
