Event details

In September 2013, following the first conference on the music of the Ars Antiqua in Princeton in November 2011, the University of Southampton's Department of Music will host the second conference in this series at its Highfield Campus.

The conference seeks to shed light on the issues around the discovery and management of known and newly-discovered source material, the implications of claims of meaning in thirteenth-century music, the use of digital technologies in the study of music of the period, as well as other traditional and innovatory approaches.

The conference invites papers on any aspect of music of Western Europe between 1150 and 1350.  If applicable, authors of papers will be able to benefit from the presence of the artists on the recent CD:
John Potter, Christopher O'Gorman, Rogers Covey-Crump, ‘Conductus 1: Music and Poetry of Thirteenth-Century France'.  Hyperion, CDA67949, 2012, which is part of the AHRC-funded project led by Professor Mark Everist (for further details, please visit Cantum Pulcriorem Invenire website).

The conference will provide accommodation for the nights of 8, 9, 10 and 11 September 2013, all meals, and aims to reimburse travel from both within the UK and abroad.

Call for Papers, closing date is Friday 25 January 2013
