2019 Annual Meeting of the New Zealand Musicological Society: ‘Musical Intersections’

Posted: April 28th, 2019 | Filed under: Calls for Papers | No Comments »

29 November to 1 December, 2019
University of Auckland, New Zealand

As the field of musicology has expanded and developed over recent decades, the notion of intersection between musical texts, methodologies, historical periods, genres, and styles has become increasingly important. Musicologists are not content to examine only one event or text at a given time, but rather we search for new ways to explore music across a wide variety of contexts, exploring how differences come together to provide deeper explanations of our musical activities. This conference examines the various ways musicologists carry out this intersectional work in the plenitude of sites that are the focus of our explorations.

Sixth Sibelius Academy Symposium on Music History
Wednesday 3 June—Friday 5 June, 2020
Sibelius Academy, University of the Arts Helsinki, Finland
Deadline for submissions: September 30, 2019

The Fifth Symposium took institutionalisation as its theme in order to contribute to and clarify the ways in which they exert power, the relationships between then, and the hierarchies they establish. In the final plenary session, delegates debated a range of topics that might be given further consideration in the next symposium. The discussion largely focussed on two areas of interest – heritage and networks – and both were considered important current areas of work with which the next symposium could engage. It has been decided that the sixth symposium should concentrate on networks and music, while the seventh would focus on questions of heritage.

Researching Subcultures and Aesthetics Postgraduate Symposium: Alternative Voices in Academia

Posted: April 23rd, 2019 | Filed under: Calls for Papers | No Comments »

10 September 2019, National University of Ireland, Galway

Punk Scholars Network invites proposals for presentations as part of our postgraduate symposium on subcultures and aesthetics at National University of Ireland, Galway. This symposium will explore how subcultures connect to aesthetics and createwhat Pierre Bourdieu calls the space of possibles, a space for radical politics to be formed through the means of artistic productions. From do-it-yourself methods of street art to the shock-effect of Dadaist and punk attitudes in different time-places, the close relationship between subcultures and aesthetics continues to reflect the turbulences of our political atmosphere. From music and literatureto cinema and other art forms, this symposium will offer a platform for postgraduate students who wish to share their research, explore critical approaches and analyse the complexities of the relationship between subcultures and aesthetics.

Posted: April 4th, 2019 | Filed under: Calls for Papers | No Comments »

A One-Day Conference with George McKay, Catherine Tackley and Alyn Shipton, June 7th 2019, University of Central Lancashire

This conference will bring together the latest research in jazz as it has been appropriated, assimilated and created/recreated in European culture. As the question of Europe is being put under pressure by Brexit and nationalist movements across the continent, this conference will seek to situate jazz as both a marginal and mainstream cultural practice which is inherently borderless and multivalent.
