Sources of Identity: Makers, Owners and Users of Music Sources Before 1600

4-6 October 2013, University of Sheffield

Generously supported by the Royal Musical Association, Music and Letters Trust, and the Plainsong and Medieval Music Society, MuGI's second international conference explored the role of manuscript and print sources in creating and communicating aspects of identity for their creators, owners, and users. The conference turned the spotlight onto the people involved in music manuscripts and prints, asking what the sources with which they are connected can tell us about the various motives lying behind their investment in music. Invited speakers included Jane Alden (Wesleyan), Julie Cumming (McGill), Honey Meconi (Rochester), and Marica Tacconi (Penn State). 

An anthology of essays deriving from the conference will be published in the Brepols series 'Epitome musical'. Click below to view the conference schedule.

Gender, Musical Creativity and Age

6-7 October 2012, University of Huddersfield

This interdisciplinary conference took a broad approach to matters of representation and identity, examining the intersection of age and gender in relation to musical creativity across a wide range of historical periods and genres. Dr Sophie Fuller (Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance; MuGI Visiting Research Fellow) gave the keynote paper, '"Something Revolting": Women, creativity and music after 50', which explored narratives of ageing and female creativity in the work of composers including Grace Williams, Elizabeth Maconchy, Joni Mitchell, and Patti Smith.
