Medieval Studies Program
Early Modern Studies Program

This continued a program initiated in 1988-89 with the goal of integrating music into teaching of other medieval and Renaissance subjects. Teams of faculty from diverse disciplines at selected consortium campuses collaborated to design on-campus symposia to demonstrate points of intersection or parallels between music and other disciplines in the medieval and early modern periods. The Newberry Consort, led by Newberry Musician-in-Residence Mary Springfels, later visited selected classrooms and performed a public concert at each campus. The four institutions participating during 1991-92 were University of Michigan, Michigan State University, University of Minnesota, and University of Wisconsin-Madison.
