Call for Papers
We welcome proposals of up to 250 words for either a 20 minute paper or a research poster on any aspect of Scottish music. We also invite proposals for themed sessions containing contributions from between 3 and 5 participants to last no more than 90 minutes. Proposals should be sent as a Word document to Shelagh Noden, (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Monday 2nd December 2013, and all those submitting proposals will be notified of the outcome by Monday 16th December. There is the prospect of peer-reviewed publication of selected papers in a special issue of the Scottish Music Review journal. Papers presented in previous years have covered a wide range of topics with a variety of approaches, with the only criterion being a connection to Scotland and music.
