Special Session: Neuming Medieval Literary Manuscripts: Text, Theory, Case Study

Call for Papers
ICMS, Kalamazoo, MI 2011

*Special Session: Neuming Medieval Literary Manuscripts: Text, Theory, Case

*Following a line of inquiry put forward by Jan Ziolkowski in *Nota
Bene,*this panel seeks to build out a more robust understanding of uses of
(medieval musical notations) in non-performative spaces in the Middle Ages.
The appearance of neumes in historical, homiletic and literary manuscripts
troubles the designations performative/non-performative and raises
about literacy and performance from the 10th-12th centuries.

This panel invites papers exploring the appearance of neumes in unexpected
texts and contexts. Was literary neuming widespread geographically, and
long-lived? Was it more likely to occur in specific locations or times?
What role do neumes play in relation to developing forms of punctuation? Just how
broad is the list of neumed "literary" works? Was it restricted to the
Classics, or much more open-ended? Does neuming reveal or cross the
boundaries between texuality, orality and aurality, and if so, how?
