North Atlantic Fiddle Convention Conference

October 13-17, 2015

Celtic Colours International Festival / Cape Breton University
Trans-Atlantic Transactions

Music and dance are means by which we share culture and identity, and exchange knowledge. The theme of Trans-Atlantic Transactions is designed to frame wide-ranging explorations of fiddling and related dance traditions as expressive forms that are shared, exchanged, and disseminated, and which provide endless opportunities for dialogue.
The idea of “transaction” can be understood broadly to embrace the exchange of repertoires and styles within and between traditions, regions, generations, and populations. Transaction may also be used to reflect upon the impact of economic forces on fiddling and dancing, from the demands of recording and touring, to the expectations placed on it by the entertainment industry and tourism.

We invite papers and panels which examine the themes of giving, taking, exchanging, and transacting as they apply to fiddling and dancing across the North Atlantic region. Some topic areas may include, but are not limited to:
• Adoption and Appropriation: Where and when would these terms be appropriate for the
circulation of fiddle and dance styles and repertoires?
• Exchanging of Repertoire: How are tunes exchanged among different or separate fiddling traditions, and what transformations or modifications are made when they are?
• Transactions Among Instruments: The fiddle repertoire has been adopted by flautists,
banjoists, accordionists, pianists, guitarists, and many others. In some cases, like the bagpipes, the fiddle and pipes mutually share repertoire. How do instruments like these reshape fiddle tunes, and what do they give back to fiddling traditions?
• Vocal Music: What transactions and exchanges occur between repertoires of fiddling, dancing and vocal music? How much has one affected another in particular traditions?

• “Blàs” (“Flavour,” “accent”): What exchanges happen between the spoken language of a culture and the rhythm, cadence, or “accent” of fiddle or dance style?

• Interactions: What are the interactions among performers, between soloists and
accompanists, between dancers and fiddlers?
• Migration: How have exchanges of population, both recent and past, affected the circulations of styles and repertoires?
• Mediation: What negotiations are made when fiddling and dancing become mass mediated, and respond to commercial priorities?
• Vocation vs. Avocation: What are the issues around the rewards of fiddling and dancing, and in which contexts? What are the range of economies involved in fiddling and dancing, from communal sharing to barter to professionalism and the pursuit of various sources of revenue?

Though we encourage presentations that engage with our theme, the program committee will gladly receive proposals for presentations on any aspect of fiddling and its dance-related cultures.

Given the setting of the conference, on Cape Breton Island, and its partnership with the Celtic Colours International Festival (Friday October 9 to Saturday October 17, 2015), we anticipate that this theme will be fruitful as we reflect on fiddling in the Old World and the New, and across many different populations and histories. Delegates will have opportunities to see many Celtic Colours International Festival performances, workshops, and events, and experience the Island’s many sights and sounds over the course of the conference.

The first half of the conference will be held in Sydney (October 13-14), and the latter half in Baddeck, Nova Scotia (October 16-17), offering a full experience of the Cape Breton’s exciting urban and beautiful rural locales. October 15 will be organized as a day of touring.

As we will be applying for funding support, submissions for academic papers will need to include:
• presenter’s full name, institutional affiliation, department, student status (if applicable), and contact information;
• presentation title;
• two abstracts: one 250 words, and one 100-150 words MAXIMUM;
• a list of degrees earned, specifying discipline;
• a list of recent positions and any positions relevant to NAFCo;
• a list of recent publications and any publications relevant to NAFCo; and
• a 100 word biography.

The submission deadline is November 15, 2014. Submissions should be sent to the email address below, and will be submitted to blind peer review.

Work & Play: Economies of Music

Work & Play: Economies of Music

The Harvard Graduate Music Forum Conference    •    20–21 February 2015

Keynote:  Robin James (UNC Charlotte)

Round Table:  Verena Andermatt Conley, Robin James, Sindhumathi Revuluri, Kay Kaufman Shelemay


- Call for Proposals -

This interdisciplinary conference takes as its premise that music is inseparable from the economic conditions of its production and consumption. Through presentations, lecture-recitals and composers’ colloquia, we seek to explore the intersections of music and economics from a diverse array of perspectives including labor, practice, material culture, and capital.

Questions include but are not limited to:

  • How do musicians and their employers understand musical labor, and how does this impinge on issues of amateurism, professionalism, and institutionalization?
  • How have shifting economic systems — for instance, from patronage to mass consumption, or from liberalism to neoliberalism — altered the place of music in society?
  • How have issues such as postcolonialism, the North-South economic divide, and globalization, intersected with various musical practices to forge divergent models of economies of music?
  • Where does music succeed and where does it fail in transforming economic relations?
  • What are the economic consequences of the material means of musics’ dissemination, such as manuscripts, published scores, phonograph recordings, streaming and live performance?
  • How do questions of cultural and economic capital combine in appraisals and contestations of musical value?
  • How has music symbolically represented economics and status? What is music’s role in this endeavour today?

- Submissions -

We welcome submissions from current graduate students on these and related topics. We seek proposals on all repertoires, musical practices and historical periods, and representing a broad set of methodologies. Formats for presentation include:

  • 20-minute papers, audiovisual presentations, or exploratory text works, with 10 minutes for discussion
    Please submit abstracts of a maximum of 350 words and, where appropriate, up to 4 additional pages for figures. Please add a short statement regarding AV requirements.
  • 30-minute composer colloquia, performances, or lecture-recitals, with 15 minutes for discussion
    Please submit details of the work to be presented in a maximum of 350 words and, where appropriate, links to relevant sound recordings and/or scores or supplementary documentation.

Deadline for proposals: 5 December 2014

Please e-mail submissions to:

Christian Congregational Music: Local and Global Perspectives


Deadline for proposals: 12 December 2014
Conference dates: 4-7 August 2015
Conference website:
Venue: Ripon College Cuddesdon, Oxford, United Kingdom

Congregational music-making is a vital and vibrant practice within Christian communities worldwide. It reflects, informs, and articulates convictions and concerns that are irreducibly local even as it flows along global networks. Congregational song can unify communities of faith across geographical and cultural boundaries; however, it can also be used to mark divisions between Christians of different denominations, cultural backgrounds, and social classes, and to negotiate or articulate difference in relation to religious outsiders. We therefore cannot understand the meanings, uses, and influences of congregational music within Christianity without exploring both its local contexts and its translocal, transnational, and global circulation.

The third biennial Christian Congregational Music conference will be held in 2015. Its goal is to expand the avenues of scholarly inquiry into congregational music-making by bringing together world-class scholars and practitioners to explore the varying cultural, social, and spiritual roles church music plays in the life of various Christian communities around the world. To this end, the conference facilitates a multifaceted dialogue among participants from a variety of academic disciplines, including musicology, ethnomusicology, theology, anthropology, history, and education.

The 2015 conference is focused on a sustained reflection about the theoretical perspectives and methodological approaches used to study congregational music. What new methodological approaches—whether from the hard sciences, social sciences, humanities, or theological disciplines—can be brought to bear on timely research questions, such as congregational music’s relation to indigenization, transnationalism, religious experience, and ethics? What new understandings about congregational music are generated with the introduction of theoretical perspectives from, for example, gender studies, postcolonial thought, neuroscience, or political economy? Although the Programme Committee will prioritise papers that bring new insights to any aspect of theory or methodology, papers addressing other topics relevant to Christian congregational music are also welcomed.

We are now accepting proposals (maximum 250 words) for individual papers and for organised panels consisting of three papers. The online proposal form can be found on the conference website at

Proposals must be received by 12 December 2014.

Notifications of acceptance will be sent by 26 January 2015, and conference registration will begin on 31 January 2015. Further instructions and information will be made available on the conference website at

Magnified & Sanctified: The Music of Jewish Prayer

AHRC “Care for the Future” Theme, Performing the Jewish Archive

University of Leeds, UK, Tuesday 16 – Friday 19 June 2015

 For the first time in Britain an International Academic Conference is being devoted to the music of Jewish prayer. Internationally acclaimed scholars in Jewish liturgical music will lead the programme presented jointly by the School of Music, University of Leeds and the Academic Wing of the European Cantors Association. The conference is organised in association with the international research project Performing the Jewish Archive, funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council. 


  • Professor Emeritus Eliyahu Schleifer, Professor of Sacred Music and Director of the School of Sacred Music at HUC-JIR/Jerusalem
  • Professor Mark Kligman, Professor of Jewish Music University of California, Los Angeles
  • Professor Rabbi Jeffrey Summit, Research Professor, Tufts University, nr Boston 


The English music scholar Percy Scholes wrote in the Oxford Companion to Music: ‘Throughout the ancient history of the Jewish people we find music mentioned with a frequency that perhaps exceeds that of its mention in the history of any other people. Music not only impresses itself on the daily life of the Jewish people through religious observance, but it is a dominant feature of the Jews’ cultural expression of their own milieu over centuries and more recently of the wider community in which they live.  Music for the Jews is an indelible part of their existence’.

This conference will explore recent research into aspects of Jewish liturgical music. This could include Hebrew Psalmody, Cantillation, Jewish modes and melodies, Piyyutim, Missinai Tunes and synagogue composition, both cantorial and choral in areas where Jewish communities have flourished across the globe and through the centuries.  It will also examine current trends and issues and the interface between Jewish liturgical music and the musics of the wider Christian, Muslim and other societies.

Proposals for 20-minute papers with 10 minutes for discussion (which may include relevant musical presentations) are invited. Papers that make use of original archival sources, or that reinterpret known sources, will be particularly welcome, though all relevant areas of investigation will be considered. We also invite suggestions for round table sessions of c.60 or 90 mins.

THE OFFICIAL LANGUAGE OF THE CONFERENCE IS ENGLISH. It is envisaged that selected papers will be published in a volume of proceedings.

PLEASE SEND AN ABSTRACT OF up to 300 WORDS by 10 November 2014, to the Conference Director, Dr Stephen Muir Your proposal should include the title of your presentation, your name and institutional affiliation and contact details, and a biography of up to 150 words. Please indicate whether your presentation includes live or recorded musical illustrations, and the technical support required.

THE PROGRAMME COMMITTEE will make its decisions by 10 December 2014, and contributors will be informed soon thereafter.

SABBATH AND EUROPEAN CANTORS CONVENTION All delegates to the International Conference are invited to join with the European Cantors Convention in special choral Sabbath with guest cantors and choirs on Friday night 19 and Saturday 20 June. Delegates might also like to attend the Convention which will take place immediately following on Sunday 21 and Monday 22 June.

FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION, please contact the Conference Director Stephen Muir  (Information about the programme, registration fees, travel and accommodation will be announced by the end of December 2014). Bursaries covering all or part of the conference fee may be offered to students.

9th Conference on Interdisciplinary Musicology

9th Conference on Interdisciplinary Musicology
Abstract submission deadline: 05 August 2014
Conference dates: December 4-6, 2014

National Institute for Music Research, Berlin, Germany

Technology is omnipresent in our lives and it plays an important role in contemporary social development, particularly in the so-called Westernized world. The role of technology in our daily life is even more so remarkable with the increasing ubiquity of technology, specially computing technology, in various activities of our contemporary society, music being a notable example. Yet, there is no single universally accepted definition of “technology”.

CIM14 will be aimed at all discourses on the interplay between technology and music, including collaborations between sciences and humanities, interactions between academic research and musical practice, and interdisciplinary combinations that are innovative, unusual, and creative.

Conference Sessions & Topics:

Please visit the conference site for a list of suggested topics including: Technology in Musicology, Ethnomusicology, Music- Education, Sociology, Anthropology, Psychology, Philosophy, Sound Recording and Technology of Musical- Instruments, Composition and Practice.

We are particularly interested in new emerging fields of technology in music research and practice, which could form a session on New Emerging Technologies, which might include: Music Neurotechnology, Neuromusicology & Neuro-inspired Music Theory, Evolutionary Computing in Music & Musicology, Computational Ethnomusicology and Unconventional Computing in Music.

Submission of papers:

CIM14 welcomes papers addressing the relationship between music and technology in a way or another. An important ranking criterion for the peer reviewing process will be the interdisciplinary nature of the paper.

Please see the online submission page for more information including important details about the submission format:

Back to the Future: Popular Music and Time

18th Biennial IASPM Conference

29 June – 3 July 2015

Universidade Estadual de Campinas

São Paulo, Brazil

Whether in relation to rhythms, eras, live performances, lyrics, identities, politics, scenes, production, or changing technologies, the topic of time can be linked to popular music in a variety of ways. The compartmentalising of sounds into genres, the ageing of audiences, and the shifting sands of the music industry all invoke notions of the temporal. For the 18th Biennial IASPM Conference, we invite researchers and practitioners to submit proposals for presentations that engage with the theme of time. We encourage proposals dealing with one of the following strands:

– Ageing Times: fandom and memory; musicians’ biographies; archiving and remastering; ageing bodies; ageing technologies; recycling repertoires.

– Historical and Social Times: contextual times; local and global histories and counter-histories; fashion, retro and revival trends; timelessness; sampling and other forms of sonic genealogies, re-circulations and surrogations.

– Modern Times: new sounds; new technologies; futurism; music industry strategies; mobile media.

– Phenomenological Times: creative process; performance deployment; gesture, affect and listening experience; cross-time productions, collaborations and performances.

– Structural Times: rhythm, tempo, groove, swing, beat and the various ways of conceptualizing the duration of sound; periodicity and repetition; flow and cadence; being in/out of time and sync; relationships between noise and silence(s).

There will be the options of: panels (of 3 or 4 presenters), individual papers, film/video presentations, or poster sessions.


Proposals of organized panels are strongly recommended (two-hour long sessions with four papers, or three papers and a discussant). Each session should leave at least 30 minutes for discussion or for comments by a discussant immediately following the presentations. The panel organizer should submit the panel abstract and all individual abstracts (200 words each) in one document, with a full list of participant names and email addresses. Where an independently submitted abstract appears to fit a panel, the Academic Committee may suggest the addition of a panelist.


We invite abstracts of no longer than 200 words, including five keywords for programming purposes. Individual paper presentations are 20 minutes long to be followed by 10 minutes of discussion.

Film/video session

Recently completed films introduced by their author and discussed by conference participants may be proposed. Submit a 200-word abstract including titles, subjects, and formats, and indicate the duration of the proposed films/videos and introduction/discussion.

Poster session

A space where presenters can exhibit posters, that remain on hand for a scheduled period for discussion, will be provided. A 200-word abstract by the poster’s author, including five keywords for programming purposes, must be submitted.


Please email your abstract as a Word doc attachment to Please name the file with your surname. The following format should be used:

– Name, affiliation and contact email address

– Type of presentation (select one from: panel, individual paper, film/video, poster)

– Title of presentation (and panel if applicable)

– Strand (select one from: Ageing Times / Historical and Social Times / Modern Times / Phenomenological Times / Structural Times)

– Abstract

– Five keywords

– Bio (80 words maximum)

Papers will be accepted in English, IASPM’s official language, and Portuguese and Spanish, IASPM Latin America’s official languages.
