CFP: Lyrica at MLA: Scott and music, Chicago, Jan 2014
- Celebrating the 200th anniversary of the publication of _Waverley_, the Lyrica Society is sponsoring a session on the interconnection between the works of Sir Walter Scott and music at the 2014 Modern Language Association convention. And the connection is great. Scott's works were the basis for countless operas (the most famous of which is _Lucia di Lammermoor_) and musical theatre pieces, as well as texts for many songs.
The MLA conference will take in Chicago from January 9th through 12th, 2014.
We invite 250-350 word proposals by March 1st, 2013 on any aspect of Scott and music. Send them to DrJSDailey at aol.com, and put "Scott MLA 2014" in the subject line.
