The REMOSS study group will hold its fourth annual conference at the University of Edinburgh on 15-16 June 2018.
REMOSS’s previous activities have been largely focussed on the use of early music in stage and screen contexts; this conference hopes to widen that perspective turning its focus towards ‘medievalism’ as a methodological and aesthetic lens through which to further interrogate those themes.
The conference committee would particularly welcome proposals on themes of ‘Global Medievalisms’ and Cross-media/intermedia Medievalism’; however, all proposals and contributions will be considered. As ever, our conception of ‘early music’ is a broad one, including the use, or re-use, of ‘real’ early music in contexts new and old, historically informed performance, and modern music drawing on medieval themes and structures. We are also interested in alternative and global traditions of ‘early’ music, as well as imagined or invented ones.
Proposal for papers, workshops, demonstrations, lecture-recitals, and panels are solicited by February 16 2018. Please send a proposal of c.200 words including the session/paper format, the names and affiliations of any speakers, and contact details for the proposer, to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you have any questions about the conference, feel free to contact any of the organisers. To register as an attendee, follow this link: http://blogs.bcu.ac.uk/remoss/2018-conference/.
