The next annual conference is taking place in 10 June 2017 at the University of Sheffield and abstracts are being invited. The REMOSS team would be especially interested to hear from scholars investigating topics related to:

  • Musical identities: nation, culture, gender
  • Interactions between folk and early music
  • Early music in opera
  • Early music and videogame
  • Representations of musical space/s in the Middle Ages
  • Medievalism and neomedievalism
  • Historically informed performance in popular culture

However, anything relating to early music on stage and screen media more broadly is welcomed and will be considered.

The conference, though hosted at Sheffield, will (as ever) involve a strong digital component so both delegates and speakers can attend digitally. Abstracts of c.250 words should be sent, along with contact details, to James Cook ( by Friday 27 January. You can follow REMOSS on Twitter.

January 2017: Roundtable

For those wishing to get a feel for the kinds of topics and approaches REMOSS work with, please consider logging on to the next ‘e-roundtable’, which is due to take place on Friday 13 January 2017 3–5.30pm (UK-time). If you wish to attend, please contact Adam Whittaker for instructions to access the study group resource page. Also, keep an eye out for the forthcoming book Recomposing the Past: Representations of Early Music on Stage and Screen (Routledge, 2017) – hopefully the first of many publications from the REMOSS group.
