The Society for Eighteenth-Century Music will hold its seventh biennial conference at the Butler School of Music at the University of Texas, Austin, 25–28 February 2016. We invite proposals for papers and other presentations on any aspect of eighteenth-century music. Presentations may be traditional papers of 25 minutes (35-minute slot), work-in-progress presentations of 10 minutes (20-minute slot), panels (45 minutes) or lecture-recitals (up to 45 minutes). Preference will be given to those who did not present at the 2014 meeting. All presenters must be members of SECM.
Submit your proposal (250 words) as an e-mail attachment to the chair of the program committee, Dianne Lehmann Goldman [secm2016 -at- gmail.com]. The deadline for proposals is September 15, 2015. Only one submission per author will be considered. Please provide a cover sheet and proposal in separate documents. The cover sheet should contain your name, e-mail address, phone number, and proposal title. The proposal should contain only the title, abstract, and audio-visual requirements. The committee’s decision will be announced in mid-October. Several period keyboard instruments will be available. For information, please contact local arrangements chair Guido Olivieri [olivieri -at- austin.utexas.edu]. Students are encouraged to apply for the Sterling E. Murray Award for Student Travel; the application form and information may be found below. The application deadline is November 1, 2015. The SECM Student Paper Award will be given to a student member for an outstanding paper presented at the conference.
