CALL FOR PAPERS


Intertextuality is a developing area of scholarly research for musicologists,
especially those working on medieval, nineteenth century, jazz and popular musics.
This study day invites proposals that develop the issues and methods of
intertextual analysis within these areas or suggest ways in which intertextuality
may usefully be considered within other musical genres and historical periods.

Particular areas of interest might include:

Quotation and borrowing in improvised music and 'art' music 
'Cover' versions in 'pop' and 'art' music 
Analysing the meaning and reception of intertextual references in music 
Non-musical intertextuality: lyrics, performances, record sleeves 
Intertexuality in opera and music theatre 
Psychology and 'hidden' referentiality 
Intertextual references that blur cultural (East meets West) and stylistic
	boundaries (issues of genre definition and canon formation) 
How much is the fusion of genres essential to the development of music? 
Sampling as an intertextual practice 
Issues of 'authorship' in intertextual music 


Proposals should be sent, in the form of an abstract of no more than 250 words, to
Dr. Catherine Parsonage, preferably by email, to:
	Dr. Catherine Parsonage,
	Research Fellow,
	Leeds College of Music,
