American Women Composer-Pianists: A Celebration of Amy Beach and Teresa
Carreño



Submission Deadline: April 1, 2017



Conference Dates: September 15 and 16, 2017



Conference website: beachcarreno2017.com



Venue: University of New Hampshire, Durham



Details: At the end of the nineteenth century, Amy Beach (1867-1944) and
Teresa Carreño (1853-1917) stood at the vanguard of a growing number of
American women pianist-composers who cut new paths in the art music world
as they navigated expectations placed on Victorian women. In the year that
marks Beach’s 150th birthday and the centennial of Carreño’s death, the
University of New Hampshire Special Collections invites proposals for a
celebration of the lives and worlds of these two women. Topics may directly
address Beach or Carreño. Alternatively, papers may shed light on matters
crucial to understanding their lives.



We welcome proposals for individual twenty-minute paper presentations,
organized panels of three to four papers, and lecture recitals. For
individual papers, submit an abstract of no more than 300 words along with
a title and list of equipment needs. Panel proposals should include a
200-word abstract for each individual paper as well as a 200-word
explanation of the session. For lecture-recitals, submit a 300-word
abstract as well as a ten-minute recording in mp3 format. Email submissions
to beachcarreno2017 -at- gmail.com by April 1, 2017 for full consideration.
Presenters will be notified of the committee’s decision by June 1.
Presentations will be considered for inclusion in a published collection of
essays.
