Crossing the Borders: Musicology in Dialogue
Frankfurt, October 1998



The 13th International Symposium of the German Association of 
Students of Musicology will take place at the Johann Wolfgang 
Goethe-University, Frankfurt am Main from the 15th until the 
18th October 1998. 

Presentations and workshops will be on the theme of:
We invite proposals for papers which examine the relationship of music to other disciplines and other arts. These include established fields of study as music and literature, music and the visual arts, and music and psychology, but we also welcome proposals examining the interaction of music with fields which are less frequently considered, such as computer science, politics, biology or chemistry. We hope to include scholars from all disciplines (humanities and sciences) whose research is interdisciplinary. Presentations will be followed by a discussion forum in order to promote exchange between different subjects. Suggestions for workshops or other presentational formats are also welcomed. Each presentation should be no longer than 60 minutes. Abstracts for presentations or workshops (300 words) should be sent by 30th April 1998 to: Dachverband der Studierenden der Musikwissenschaft Sektion Frankfurt/Main Institut für Musikwissenschaft Senckenberganlage 24 D-60054 Frankfurt am Main Germany Tel. +49 69/ 798 - 22183 Fax: +49 69/ 798 - 28580 Please include any requests for technical equipment.
