Bernard Edmonds Research Conference

Barber Institute of Fine Arts, University of Birmingham

Saturday 23 February 2019

Call for papers

Proposals should present some recent research into aspects of organ history, including music and performance.  A broad range of subjects are encouraged and papers on organs and organ builders, including British organ-builders working overseas and organs built in Britain by foreign organ-builders, will be welcomed alongside papers more broadly based. 


Papers should be around twenty-five minutes in length, and the use of musical and pictorial illustrations is encouraged.  Students are encouraged to apply for short slots if they wish to present initial research findings.


Proposals will be reviewed by members of BIOS Council and the authors of successful proposals will be notified as soon as possible.


A summary proposal of 200 words, along with a brief biographical note, should be sent by 29 October 2018 if possible, but enquiries are welcome any time.
