The Forum on Music and Christian Scholarship seeks proposals for its upcoming annual meeting, which will take place at Wheaton College (Wheaton, Ill.) from March 17 to 19, 2011.

Papers on any topic pertaining to music and Christian scholarship are welcome. Likewise, we invite submissions representing a variety of approaches and perspectives, including history, ethnomusicology, theory and analysis, philosophy and theology, liturgy, and critical theory. Papers will be 25 minutes long. Proposals for panels or lecture recitals are also welcome.

The committee also welcomes proposals for papers or panels related to the following particular topics:

• Perspectives on Johannes Brahms’s Ein deutsches Requiem (the conference will feature a performance of this work)

• Popular Culture, Gender, and Race in Christian Scholarship

The Forum on Music and Christian Scholarship is an association of scholars interested in exploring the intersections of Christian faith and musical scholarship. We are an ecumenical association, reflecting the world-wide diversity of Christian traditions, and seeking to learn from scholars outside those traditions. As scholars of Christian convictions, we are dedicated to excellence in all our work as musicologists, theorists
and ethnomusicologists. For more information about the FMCS and about previous conferences see the “Conferences” web page.

Please send an approximately 300-word abstract which includes your name, affiliation, and contact information to the Chair of the Program Committee:
