Word and Music Studies: Seventh International Conference


10. - 13. Juni 2009


The International Association for Word and Music Studies (WMA) takes pleasure in announcing its Seventh International Conference to be held at the University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna from June 10 to 13, 2009. Previous conferences have been held biennially in Graz, Ann Arbor, Sydney, Berlin, Santa Barbara and Edinburgh with conference proceedings published in the association’s book series, Word and Music Studies (WMS). Proceedings from the most recent conference in Edinburgh are due in 2009.


Scholars active in all areas of Word and Music Studies are invited to participate in the Vienna conference, which, like its predecessors, will be devoted to two themes, the second of which, “Surveying the Field”, is a regular feature; the conference will also again include a “Word and Music Studies Forum” section.
