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.

Sibelius Academy, University of the Arts Helsinki, Finland
Deadline for submissions: September 30, 2019

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.
