Call for Papers

The Royal Musical Association and the Serge Prokofiev Archive announce a study day on Prokofiev, to be held at Goldsmiths, University of London on Saturday 10 May 2008. This will be a forum for postgraduate students working on all aspects of Prokofiev to come together and share and discuss their research.

Since the composer’s death, Prokofiev scholarship has relied on a relatively limited range of sources. Increasingly, however, scholars are making use of important new sources such as the recently published diaries. These, along with unpublished archival material, shed light on topics such as Prokofiev’s interaction and collaboration with other artists, many of whom were influential cultural figures.

Proposals are invited from postgraduate students for papers (20 minutes) on any topic related to Prokofiev and his work in its broadest context. This study day aims to encourage exploration of the subject from new angles with a view to reaching beyond established research trends.

Abstracts (maximum 250  words) should be submitted to Fiona McKnight f.mcknight@gold.ac.uk by 1 February 2008 for consideration by the programme committee.


Registration for the study day is required. To register, please email contact details to Christina Guillaumier c.guillaumier@rsamd.ac.uk by 10 April 2008.

A registration fee of £10 (payable to the Royal Musical Association) is payable on the day. The study day is free for members of the RMA and Goldsmiths students and staff.
