We will then acknowledge Stevenson's extensive work in Spanish and Latin-American
music and consider areas in which scholars have built upon his legacy.
Professor Malena Kuss (University of North Texas) will identify Stevenson's
most important contributions in Latin-American music scholarship and
assess where his work has been significantly built upon. Professor Walter
Clark (University of Kansas) will perform a similar task for the music
of Spain. Professor John Koegel (Nebraska Wesleyan University) will

and briefly survey other areas in that field.

Music Into The Next Millennium:
International Hispanic Music Study Group Study Session, International
Musicological Society Congress in London, 1997.
The Study Group seeks proposals for contributions to a two-part Study
Session to be proposed to the Program Committee for the Congress of
the International Musicological Society to be held in London, 14-20
August, 1997. The morning session will be devoted to secular music,
including the dramatic genres. The afternoon session will discuss sacred
music. The proposed presentations, which can be no longer than ten minutes
in length, should exemplify the theme of the Study Session, with special
attention placed upon emerging research paths, be they those having
to do with new sources or research techniques, or those employing new
or inter-disciplinary methodologies for the study of existing music.
Each panel will have six participants and a reporter.
A one-page abstract, detailing the purpose and scope of the proposed
presentation, should be sent to the coordinator by 1 January, 1996.
The individuals to be identified to the Program Committee of the International
Musicological Society will be notified by 1 March, 1996. It is the understanding
of the Coordinator that individuals may also propose a free paper to
the Program Committee of the IMS, as well as being proposed for membership
in a Study Session. The chair for the afternoon session on sacred music
will be Professor Maricarmen Gómez. The chair for the morning
session on secular music will be Professor Carol Hess. The abstracts
will be evaluated by a committee consisting of both Chairs, the coordinator,
and Professor Craig Russell.
