BASEES Study Group for Russian and Eastern European Music (REEM)
2019 Annual Conference
Saturday 12 October 2019
CALL FOR PAPERS
The 2019 BASEES-REEM annual conference will be held in memoriam Stuart Campbell (1949–2018), a notable scholar of Russian music who held the posts of Lecturer in Music, University Organist, and Director of Chapel Music at the University of Glasgow from 1975 to 2000. His publications included two anthologies of Russian music criticism, Russians On Russian Music (Cambridge University Press), and he contributed entries on Russian topics to the New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians, Die Musik in Geschichte und Gegenwart, and other reference works. A member of the editorial board overseeing the production of a new Complete Works of Sergei Rachmaninoff, Dr Campbell was also a co-founder and conductor of the Glasgow-based choir Russkaya Cappella and a notable advocate of Orthodox liturgical music.
Proposals are invited for 20-minute presentations that explore themes germane to Stuart Campbell’s research interests, including:
* Music criticism in Russia and Eastern Europe
* Eastern Orthodox sacred music
* The Russian and Eastern European musical diaspora
* Music and film
The official language is English.
REEM has a modest amount of money available to assist speakers, especially postgraduates and those without access to other funds, with the costs of attending. If you would like to be considered for such funding, which is likely to cover only a portion of your travel and/or accommodation expenses, please indicate this in your proposal.
Convenors: Anastasia Belina, Philip Bullock, Katerina Levidou, Ivana Medić, Danijela Š. Beard, and Patrick Zuk.
