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.
