CFP: Contemporary Music and Spirituality
The revival of religious or spiritually-inspired music in the last twenty years
by so many composers (such as Adams, Andriessen, Birtwistle, Grisey,
Gubaydulina, Harvey, Henze, MacMillan, Messiaen, Pärt, Penderecki, Stockhausen
and Tavener) and many artists is a sign of a profound change in the arts and
their engagement with society. This conference will seek to explore why and how
these composers and others have sought to convey religious or spiritual
expression through music. How does this music engage with and transform the
traditional narratives of modernity, and how has this music created a vision for
the role of music in the twenty-first century? How can contemporary music shape
our understanding of the divine in a so-called secular age, and what does this
say about the nature of music and spirituality?
This conference will take place at Southbank Centre, London in collaboration
with the Royal Musical Association from 1-3 February 2008. Keynote speakers at
the conference include the composers Jonathan Harvey, James MacMillan and
Francis Pott. It will dovetail with the opening of the Messiaen festival at
Southbank Centre. As part of the conference, there will be a roundtable
discussion on Messiaen’s Quatuor pour la fin du Temps on Sunday 3 February from
2.30 p.m, chaired by Robert Sholl with participants Pierre-Laurent Aimard, and
Jonathan Harvey. This event will include live performances of extracts from the
Quartet performed by the Nash Ensemble, and will be followed at 6 p.m. by a
complete performance of the work.
Proposals for papers (of 20 minutes) on any subject related to the main
conference theme should be sent to robert.sholl at tvu.ac.uk by November 20.
Proposals should be in English, and contain an abstract of 300 words maximum.
They also should include your name, a short biographical note, and your contact

CONCEPTS OF CREATIVITY IN SEVENTEENTH-CENTURY ENGLAND
Two-day International Interdisciplinary Symposium, 6–7 September 2008

Invited speakers: Prof. James Winn, Boston

Walkling, Binghamton University; Prof. Amanda
Eubanks Winkler, Syracuse University
Creation: 'a making or forming of something, as it were, out of nothing'
Edward Phillips, A Nevv VVorld of VVords, Or a
General English Dictionary (London, 1678)
The early modern period witnessed the flowering
of what, today, we would call the creative arts
in England, and in recent years the social and
cultural significance of such activities has come
to be appreciated increasingly by scholars across
a broad range of disciplines. But what exactly
did it mean to form something, ‘as it were, out
of nothing’ in the seventeenth century? While our
modern understanding of creativity is firmly
based around ideas of imagination and
originality, it is far from clear that such
concepts were always relevant to the production
of visual art, music, plays, poetry and
literature in the seventeenth century; moreover,
basic tenets that we tend to take for
granted—such as the primacy of the author—have
been shown to be inappropriate in a number of
significant studies. The aim of this
interdisciplinary symposium is to explore ways in
which we can seek to understand what it meant to
be creative in the early modern period.
We welcome proposals for papers from an
interdisciplinary field, including cultural
historians, art historians, dance historians,
theatre historians, musicologists and literary
scholars. The deadline for receipt of abstracts
is 31 January 2008; full details of the call for papers can be found at:
The symposium forms part of a four-year research
project directed by Dr Rebecca Herissone; see

The Musicology graduate students of the University of Victoria invite scholars
to submit articles for the Spring 2008 volume of Musicological Explorations.
Musicological Explorations' mandate is to provide a forum for scholarly work in
musicology and related arts. The Editorial Board encourages graduate students
and other scholars to submit previously unpublished articles on topics of
musicology, performance practice, ethnomusicology, music education, and
interdisciplinary studies. Announcements of conferences, symposiums, and other
musicological activities in North America are also welcome.
Articles should be between 2000 and 6000 words. Submissions should be typed,
double spaced, single-sided, and sent in triplicate on 8 ½ x 11" paper with
standard margins. A cover letter should accompany the submission. Submissions
are reviewed anonymously; therefore, the author's name should appear only in the
cover letter, which should also include the author's e-mail address. Musical
examples or other illustrations may appear in the body of the paper or may
follow as appendices. They must be well labeled. The Editorial Board reserves
the right to place these examples as publication layout requires, and to make
other editorial suggestions. Contributors are requested to refer to the Chicago
Manual of Style, 14th ed., or to Kate L. Turabian's A Manual for Writers of Term
Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, 6th ed., for general matters of style and
citation. Titles and foreign terms should be italicized. Papers are required
to possess both footnotes and a bibliography.
If accepted for publication, authors should submit their final draft in
electronic format, preferably in Microsoft Word. Authors should also be
prepared to submit a short biography (50-80 words) and an abstract (250 words)
for inclusion in the journal. Authors are responsible for obtaining permission
to reprint all copyrighted material.
Deadline for submissions is Friday, January 18, 2008.
Manuscripts should be addressed to:
