“The Mediterranean: Migrant Sounds”
AVAMUS (Associació Valenciana de Musicologia)
23-26 July, 2019
“La Nau” Cultural Space
2 University Street- Valencia (Spain) – Apt. 46003

The International Conference «The Mediterranean: Migrant Sounds», is the second of this type organized by AVAMUS and is proposed as a continuation of the International Conference «La Música en la Mediterrània Occidental: red de comunicación intercultural» (The Music in the Western Mediterranean: intercultural communication network), which took place in July 2014. This conference is interdisciplinary in its outlook, bringing together the many disciplines that examine the history and effect of music and sound, and which also interact with other approaches from the humanities and social sciences, for example art, literature, anthropology and sociology. Thus, the social and ethical dimensions are tackled both historically and synchronously, seeking out a history of movement that allows us to better understand our shared history.

The event will comprise four plenary keynotes, panels with individual papers, round tables, and presentations of 15 minutes (plus 5 minutes of debate). This call for papers offers all researchers the opportunity to submit proposals presenting completed research or ongoing research.

Proposals in the form of communication must include:

  • Title of the proposal.
  • Name and surname of the author.
  • Institutional afiliation (if applicable).
  • A contact email.
  • An abstract of 300 words maximum (bibliography included).
    The evaluation criteria of the scientific committee can be consulted on the official website of the Conference.

The deadline to send proposals is April 15th, 2019. Abstracts should be sent to the following e-mail address: [email protected]

Acceptance/rejection of the proposals will be informed by May 15th 2019.
