[Original CFP]

A one-day conference at the Institute of Musical Research,
London, in association with the RMA and CHOMBEC.
11th January 2013.
Papers are invited for a one-day conference to be held in January 2013, exploring relationships between music, the arts and the politics of national identity in twentieth-century Britain. Is it possible to evoke notions or concepts of national identity in music? Did the twentieth century present specific problems for musicians, authors, artists or other people involved in the arts? In what ways did the political and military conflicts of the twentieth century have an impact upon the ideologies and aesthetics of art?
We particularly welcome papers that seek to place music and other art-forms within their social, cultural, political or economic contexts. Papers are welcomed from all scholars, including postgraduate and early stage researchers.
Abstracts of 300 words (for 20-minute papers) should be submitted by the 30th of September to Jane.Angell.2009@live.rhul.ac.uk.
For any other queries please contact:
b.wolf@rhul.ac.uk or eleanor.valentine.2008@live.rhul.ac.uk
