Music and (Dis)Placement Study Day

Conferences index | Golden Pages index | Music Department homepage

Keynote speaker: Philip Bohlman (University of Chicago)

Furthering the now broadly accepted notion of the connection of music and place, the study day proposes to explore interactions between music and (dis-)placement, with particular regard to composers, music theorists, musicologists, performers, publishers, audiences, and all other parties involved in the process that is connected with music(making).

The aim of the study day is to provide a platform for exchange which not only involves musicologists  and ethnomusicologists, but also cultural and social historians. It will offer scholars from disciplines within and outside musicology the opportunity to exchange ideas on an interdisciplinary level, thus providing a much-needed platform to discuss current research and issues surrounding people and art in exile.

We are delighted to announce that Professor Philip V. Bohlman (University of Chicago) will open the study day with a keynote address. To end the day, he will also participate in a performance of Viktor Ullmann’s Liebe und Tod des Cornets Christoph Rilke, composed in the Terezín concentration camp.
