North American British Music Studies Association (NABMSA) third biennial conference, July 31 - August 3, 2008, York University in Toronto, Ontario.
NABMSA’s third conference will once again bring together scholars and lovers of British music from all academic fields and parts of the world for two-and-a-half days of papers, discussions, and musical performances. We welcome papers examining all time periods of British music and musical life, all geographical regions of Britain, and all uses of British music outside of Britain. We are particularly interested in papers that examine this music in an interdisciplinary or cultural context. We especially welcome student papers, which will be eligible for the second biennial Temperley prize for the best student paper presented at the NABMSA conference.
Abstracts of up to 500 words for 20-25 minute individual papers, for paper sessions, or for lecture recitals should be sent by February 1, 2008, to Byron Adams, University of California, Music Department, Arts 146, 900 University Ave, Riverside, CA, 92521; or send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
