CFP: 10th Meeting of the International Society for the Study of Greek and Roman Music (MOISA): The  "Revolution" of the New Music

CFP deadline: 12 February 2017

Conference dates and location: 28-30 July 2016, Jesus College, Oxford

Conference website

Jesus College Oxford will be pleased to host the 10th Moisa Meeting in July 2017 – a historic conference that marks the tenth anniversary since the foundation of MOISA, the International Society for the Study of Greek and Roman Music and its Cultural Heritage.

To celebrate this milestone appropriately, this conference will focus on one of the most controversial and discussed phenomena in ancient Greek musical history: the radical innovations of the so-called ‘New Music’.


Proposals are invited of no more than 500 words for 30-minute papers in English on any aspects of this topic, from the Classical heyday of this musical ‘revolution’ to explorations of its historical roots and later reception. The aim is for selected papers to represent a variety of approaches to this complex phase of ancient music – literary, musicological, and historiographical discussions as well as archaeological, ethnomusicological, iconographic and other perspectives.

For more information, please visit the conference website and check the full CFP.


Proposals should be sent to Tosca Lynch (tosca.lynch -at- by 12 February 2017.
