Musicology in the Digital Age


A Study Day in association with the Institute of Musical Research and the Society for Music Analysis


Room G37, Senate House, University of London

26 April 2010, 10am - 4pm


Speakers to include: Alan Marsden (Lancaster), Tim Crawford (Goldsmiths), David Bretherton (Southampton), Vanessa Hawes (UEA) and Polina Proutskova (Goldsmiths)


This event is aimed at musicologists (including ethnomusicologists and music theorists) who are interested in applying, or already apply, e-Science methodologies and computational approaches to their research. We particularly encourage established, emerging and postgraduate scholars with no prior experience of computational musicology or e-Science, to attend. A primary aim of the Study Day is to help attendees recognise opportunities for computational and e-Science approaches in their own work, and for identifying potential areas for future research collaboration.


The morning will be given over to presentations by scholars already working at the intersection of musicology and computer science. The afternoon will be devoted to workshops and discussion of the issues surrounding 'e-musicology'.


Attendance is free of charge, but places are limited.

Email D.Bretherton@soton.ac.uk to secure a place.
