The Historical Performance Institute of the Indiana University Jacobs
School of Music invites the submission of abstracts for its sixth-annual
international conference—”Historical Performance: Theory, Practice, and
Interdisciplinarity”—to convene May 14-16, 2021.

This three-day virtual event will again bring together scholar-performers
(and performer-scholars) to present new research, engage in conversation,
and consider emergent areas in historical performance research. Scholars
working within disciplines adjacent to the field of music are particularly
encouraged to participate. Running concurrently will be the Bloomington
Early Music Festival (May 9-16), with evening festival performances offered
free of charge to all conference participants.

Focus: Community Engagement and Access
The fifth-annual conference presented a summit involving leaders of
thirteen historical performance programs in higher education, variously
from the US, Canada, the UK, and Europe. Relevant key challenges to the
field’s future were discussed in detail in keynote addresses and panel
sessions. The forthcoming conference will continue and broaden the scope of
these discussions, to include leaders of community-based, early-music
educational programs and festivals, addressing themes of community
engagement and access. Interested program leaders are invited to contact
conference administrator, Adam Dillon (hpi -at-, with
proposals for participation and discussion (deadline: March 15).

Running in parallel with the above-mentioned focus will be the more routine
offerings of field research. Please send abstracts via email with the
subject line—HPI Conference Abstract 2021—to Adam Dillon (hpi -at- no later than March 15, 2021. Receipt of all submissions will
be acknowledged by email, with final notifications sent on March 22.
