Call for Submissions: Florilegium special issue on music

Florilegium is an international, peer-reviewed journal that focuses on the study of Late Antiquity and the Middle Ages (c. 500-1500) broadly defined from a geographic and cultural perspective. We invite submissions of regular articles as well as short articles on topics of interest to the members (e.g., medieval resources, methods, etc.) for regular issues. 

Florilegium is currently seeking proposals for a special issue devoted to Music to be guest edited by James V. Maiello. Proposals (c. 250 words) and enquiries regarding this issue should be sent to by 15 January 2022.  For accepted proposals, full essays will be expected by 30 September 2022.

Scholarship from all related disciplines and conceptual/theoretical frameworks is welcome; interdisciplinary approaches are encouraged. The journal is particularly interested in research that addresses non-western traditions and perspectives, as well as work that focuses on marginalized communities and/or issues.

Submissions are refereed double-blind by international and Canadian specialists. Manuscripts submitted for consideration must not contain any indication of authorship. Contributors need not be members of the Canadian Society of Medievalists / Société canadienne des médiévistes.

Manuscripts, written in English or French, should be submitted electronically as Microsoft Word documents to the journal management system: Articles  should normally not exceed 8,000-9,000 words, including footnotes, and should be formatted according to Chicago style. Papers may be written in either English or French. A brief abstract (one or two sentences) should be included with the submission.

General enquiries about the journal or proposals for special issues are always welcome: those interested should contact David Watt directly at
