Musical Instruments – History, Science and Culture

The Galpin Society in association with Making the Tudor Viol (University of Huddersfield, supported by the AHRC) and CIMCIM (Comité International des Musées et Collections d’Instruments de Musique)


Musical Instruments – History, Science and Culture
Thursday 25th – Monday 29th July 2013, Faculty of Music, Oxford, UK

Papers of 20 minutes duration are invited for this major conference on musical instruments.
One day of the conference (Friday 26th July) will include a particular focus on viols in 16th-century England, but papers on related topics and other instruments will also be considered for that day. The rest of the conference will address topics concerning the study and context of any musical instrument.

It is hoped that conference participants and speakers will include instrument makers and performers as well as professional and independent scholars.

Every prospective speaker should send the title of their presentation, and an abstract (maximum 200 words), to Lance Whitehead – these must be received before the end of January 2013.

Presentations are to be given in English. Speakers intending to use PowerPoint are requested to bring their presentation on a memory stick and to ensure that it is PC compatible.

After selection by the organisers, speakers will be contacted by the end of March 2013.
We are pleased to announce that a prize of £150 will be awarded for the best student debut paper.
