Conferences in and about Greece Directory - Previous Article - Next Article

From: "HR-Net News Distribution Manager" <dist@hri.org>

Originally From: American Society of Byzantine Music and Hymnology <asbmh at pitt.edu>

AMERICAN SOCIETY OF BYZANTINE MUSIC AND HYMNOLOGY

An international organisation devoted to the scholarly study of music and ecclesiastic hymnographic literature of the Byzantine empire and the post-Byzantine period.

In collaboration with the Byzantine Studies Initiative of the University of Pittsburgh and with the organisational collaboration and support of the European Arts Center (EUARCE), we announce the First International Conference of the Society entitled BYZANTINE MUSICAL CULTURE.

For full details and to participate: http://www.ucis.pitt.edu/asbmh/conference2007

The Conference is dedicated, in memoriam, to St-John Chrysostom, one of the pivotal Fathers of Christianity, 1600 years since his passing.

The Conference is scheduled to be held either at the InterOrthodox Center of the Pendeli Monastery, Church of Greece (pending), or the geographically-proximal Conference Center of The Paeanea Municipal Building between September 10-14, 2007 in Attica, Greece. Both locations are served well by Hotel Akraion, which will accomodate all participants.

Athens is the main attraction in the prefecture of Attica and serving as Greece's historical center offers a unique setting for the scholar and musicologist including numerous sites of archaeological interest, museums, libraries and ecclesiastic locations.

On-line abstract submission deadline is July 31st, 2007

On-line registration deadline is also July 31st, 2007

The conference will consist of a series of core thematic sessions along with musical interludes and guided tours of sites and venues relevant to the overall theme.

The plenary sessions will feature distinguished invited guests and the thematic sessions will then follow.

The conference will focus on the following thematic cores:

-Ecclesiastic music of Orthodoxy worldwide
