The Society for Christian Scholarship in Music seeks proposals for its upcoming annual meeting, which will take place at Trinity Christian College (Palos Heights, IL), February 20-22, 2014.
Individual papers, panels, and lecture recitals on any topic pertaining to music and Christian scholarship are welcome. Individual papers are 25 minutes long; panels (with three people) are one and a half hours; and lecture-recitals, one hour. We invite submissions representing a variety of approaches and perspectives, including history, ethnomusicology, theory and analysis, philosophy and theology, liturgy, and critical theory.
SCSM encourages submissions from current graduate students. A $250 prize will be awarded for the best paper presented by a graduate student at the 2014 meeting.
The Society for Christian Scholarship in Music (formerly the Forum on Music and Christian Scholarship) is an association of scholars interested in exploring the intersections of Christian faith and musical scholarship. We are an ecumenical association, reflecting the world-wide diversity of Christian traditions, and seeking to learn from scholars outside those traditions. As scholars of Christian convictions, we are dedicated to excellence in all our work as musicologists, theorists, and ethnomusicologists. Conference registration is open to all interested persons: undergraduate and graduate students, as well as independent and affiliated scholars. For more information about SCSM and about previous conferences, see www.fmcs.us.
Please send a 250-word abstract for individual papers and lecture recitals, and a 500-word abstract for panels, including all names, affiliation, and contact information. Send submissions or any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org. The deadline for submissions is October 1, 2013.
