CFP (deadline extended): American Handel Society Festival and Conference, Bloomington, IN, February 2019 Extension: October 15, 2018 – Opportunity for an interdisciplinary panel
The American Handel Society’s biennial American Handel Festival will take place at the Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana, February 7–10, 2019. The festival includes academic panels, the Serwer Lecture, and performances of music by Handel and his contemporaries.
The Society invites the submission of abstracts for papers on any topic connected with Handel’s life and music. In addition, we also invite topics for an interdisciplinary panel on the theme of "Narrative Turning Points in the Eighteenth Century," which may be interpreted broadly, from narrative structure and narrative representation, to historiographical or methodological changes with respect to narrative. We will be especially interested in papers on topics pertaining to theater, drama, spectacle, music, or art, or any narrative themes related to the major performances of the festival--Handel's Giulio Cesare and Parnasso in festa.
Abstracts of no more than 500 words may be sent by October 15, 2018 to the Program Chair, Norbert Dubowy at norbert.dubowy [at] gmail.com
