CFP: Song, Stage and Screen III

Call for Papers

Music in Gotham, in collaboration with Song, Stage and Screen III, invites proposals for presentations on topics in American musical theater, to be held on April 2-5, 2008 at the Graduate Center, City University of New York. We encourage abstracts of up to 250 words on 19th-century musical theater, the musical from 1900 through World War 1, and the musical from 1920 through the present. Proposals on other aspects of musical theater, including the issues of critical editions, revivals, and textual and musical problems are also welcome. Abstracts should be sent to MusicinGotham AT by August 30, 2007.

Song, Stage and Screen is the annual conference of the academic journal, Studies in Musical Theatre, which is published by Intellect Press. Previous Song, Stage and Screen conferences have been held at the University of Portsmouth, UK (2006) and University of Leeds, UK (2007). We are delighted to be bringing the 2008 conference to the USA, to be hosted in collaboration with Music in Gotham at the Graduate Center of City University of New York. It is expected that a selection of papers from this joint conference will be invited for submission to the journal and publication.
