The Journal of Audiovisual Ethnomusicology (JAVEM)

Posted: December 1st, 2021 | Filed under: Calls for Papers | No Comments »

The Journal of Audiovisual Ethnomusicology (JAVEM) is a newly established, bi-annual, peer-reviewed streaming journal of ethnomusicological film and video sponsored by the Society for Ethnomusicology.

JAVEM aims to advance the use of video/film as a method for exploring music and its entanglements, and as a medium for presenting those explorations.

We invite the submission to JAVEM of original audiovisual contributions.

The editors will consider expository, experimental, and/or artistic works that articulate an argument within or adjacent to the field of ethnomusicology. Accepted audiovisual works will represent current research, new theoretical perspectives, and critical audio-visual strategies that fall outside the limitations of print scholarship. The work, which can be of any length, should produce new musicological knowledge about its subject through its audiovisual form. The web format will also allow for supporting text and relevant hyperlinks to the primary work.

Conference website: https://mrc.hanyang.ac.kr/differentiating-sound-studies
Venue: Hanyang University, Seoul, Korea (hybrid)

Keynote Speakers:

Eric Drott (The University of Texas at Austin)

Following the success of “Rethinking Sound 2018,” Music Research Center at Hanyang University is pleased to announce its second international conference “Differentiating Sound Studies: Politics of Sound and Listening,” to be held on 15– 16 April 2022 in Seoul, Korea. In light of the current COVID-19 situation, the conference will be hosted in a hybrid format.

We invite proposals on any topics in the area of sound studies. We are particularly interested in themes relating to various ways in which sound makes differences in society and culture. How do class/stratum, gender/sexuality, and generational/regional differences manifest themselves via sound? What do they sound like? In relation to these questions, we also interrogate how techniques of listening are mediated by technology today, and what that relationship brings to the world.

International Conference, Winthrop-King Institute, Florida State University
20-21 October 2022

Co-organizers: Martin Munro (Florida State), Denis Provencher (University of Arizona), Barbara Lebrun (University of Manchester), Chris Tinker (Heriot-Watt University)

Contemporary French Civilization published by Liverpool University Press is pleased to co-sponsor this event. The Department of French and Italian and the College of Humanities at the University of Arizona are also proud co-sponsors of this event.

The co-organizers plan to edit a future special issue of Contemporary French Civilization on the conference theme and hence are looking for a variety of topics for this project.

Born in Nantes in 1988, Héloïse Adélaïde Letissier, known as Christine and the Queens or simply Chris is a star for our times: singer, songwriter, producer, dancer, and choreographer, she flits between roles, just as she does between identities, names, genders, genres, places, and languages. Describing her identity as a “broken mirror,” she exists in fragments, splinters, shards, broken parts that yet constitute a distinctive whole.
