West End Musical Theatre, 1880-1930

Goldsmiths College, London, April 10-11th 2008

Call for papers

We are inviting papers on any aspect of the academic study of West End
Musical Theatre, 1880-1930. We are also looking for panel leaders and
ideas for panels. Among the broad topics we have considered are:

Musical theatre and the idea of modernity
West End musical comedy
Early British musicals in musical theatre historiography 
Music Hall
The economics of West End musical theatre
Gender and performance
Musicals and the idea of cultural value
Musical theatre as "popular culture"
Musicals and national identities

The ambition is to illustrate lectures with student performances - of
scenes, songs, dance routines etc - where this is possible and
appropriate. It would be helpful if proposals could indicate where there
is congruence with this aim, advising us on the availability of texts and
scores where necessary.

Ideas for lectures and panels, and offers to chair panels, should be sent
to by July 31st, 2007.
