The conference was organized into three sections, the first being devoted to the primary theme of “Silence, Absence and Ellipsis in Words and Music”. The second section, “Surveying the Field”, involved papers that dealt with general theoretical and methodological questions intrinsic to the established scholarly field of Word and Music Studies. The conference also included a section of “Word and Music Studies Working Papers”. This section included shorter papers reflecting work-in-progress in the field of Word and Music Studies. A total of nearly fifty participants from around the world gave papers and recitals over the four days of the conference, and like previous conferences of the Association, this was another significant event in the field.
