'Re-examining the Transition from the Renaissance to the Baroque': A Forum for Student-Led Research


'Re-examining the Transition from the Renaissance to the Baroque': A Forum for Student-Led Research
A Royal Musical Association Study Day in association with the Sixteenth-/Seventeenth-Century Music Network

Faculty of Music, University of Oxford

Saturday 25 September 2010


Panel discussion chaired by Peter Holman, Reinhard Strohm and Richard Wistreich


This forum seeks to facilitate and promote links among scholars with research interests in the music of the late-Renaissance and early-Baroque eras. Traditional periodizations separate scholars working on closely-related musical topics, and hinder study of transitions from one music-historical period to another. This forum re-examines concepts of continuity and change in late-Renaissance and early-Baroque music.


Call for papers:

We invite proposals for twenty-minute papers on any aspect of sixteenth- or seventeenth-century music; we particularly welcome proposals that re-examine the transition from the Renaissance to the Baroque. Abstracts of no more than 250 words should be emailed to gregory.camp@music.ox.ac.uk by Friday 7 May 2010 for consideration by the programme committee.


Registration opens on Tuesday 25 May 2010. The registration form can be downloaded from http://www.rma.ac.uk/news-and-events-html/2010-Oxford-Study-Day-Form.pdf.
