Medieval and Renaissance Music Conference 2016

Medieval and Renaissance Music Conference

University of Sheffield, 5–8 July 2016


We welcome proposals for individual papers of 20 mins, “lightning talks” of 10 mins, round tables, workshops, and posters. We particularly encourage proposals for themed sessions of 3 or 4 papers.

We are delighted to announce that we will have a ‘conference consort’, 4D/O Beta, available for any delegates to use in delivering their papers. The consort will comprise singer-musicologists experienced in reading from period notation. Paper proposers may wish to use the consort simply for live musical examples, or to build their paper around this facility. Please state in your proposal if you wish to include the consort in your presentation.

All proposals should include

– Title

– Indication of format

– Proposer’s name, affiliation, and a short bio

– Contact email

– AV requirements


Individual abstracts should be no longer than 200 words. Themed session abstracts should also include an additional description (no longer than 200 words) of the proposed theme.

Please send your abstract to

If intending to use the conference consort, please also email to discuss your requirements.
