International conference for PhD students

International conference for PhD students

 “Musicology (in)action: Past musics, present practices, future prospects”

 Thessaloniki, 9 – 11 February 2018

 The Department of Music Studies of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and the Department of Music Science and Art of the University of Macedonia will host, under the auspices of the Hellenic Musicological Society, an international conference for PhD students entitled “Musicology (in)action: Past musics, present practices, future prospects” in Thessaloniki, Greece, from 9 to 11 of February 2018.

 

Call for papers

In recent years, musicology has tested its boundaries, objects of study, and, indeed, prospected future through the constant questioning of its subfields, themes, and methodological underpinnings. At the same time, this interrogative process has also been one of constant development of new, often interdisciplinary methodological approaches, frequently extending their grasp on new or hitherto neglected musical repertoires. It is this ambiguous state of conditions that the novice in the field of musicological research faces in her/his everyday effort to situate her/his own research within a constantly changing disciplinary environment. This conference aims to bring together fresh ideas of new researchers in an attempt to help them secure their position with respect to the ongoing discourse of musicology’s saga and with an eye to the future prospects of the field.

 

We welcome proposals of PhD students for 20-minute paper presentations or 40- to 80-minute panel presentations (of up to four participants), addressing a variety of old and new(er) research topics from the broad field of musicology (e.g. historical and cultural musicology, music theory and analysis, ethnomusicology and musical anthropology, music psychology, computational musicology, music philosophy and aesthetics). Proposals on topics that cross the strict intra- or inter-disciplinary boundaries of musicology are also welcomed.

Proposals and inquiries should be submitted to the following email address:

conf.phd.2018@gmail.com

 

Proposals for paper presentations should include:

– name of participant(s) and institutional affiliation(s)

– abstract (up to 300 words)

– brief CV (up to 100 words)

 

Proposals for panel presentations should include:

– name of participants and institutional affiliations

– general abstract of proposed panel presentation (up to 300 words)

– individual abstract of each participant’s presentation (up to 300 words)

– brief CV of each participant (up to 100 words)

 

DEADLINE FOR PROPOSAL SUBMISSION: 30 May 2017

NOTIFICATION OF APPROVAL: No later than 15 July 2017

PARTICIPATION FEE: PhD students: 50 euros, undergraduate and master’s students: 30 euros

Research Hands on FLUTE

Research Hands on FLUTE

Research ‘Hands on’ FLUTE is a meeting dedicated to the area of the flute, and is unique due to its symbiosis between two types of meetings: the convention, of an artistic nature which concentrates on a particular instrument (such as the British Flute Society Convention 2016, for example) and the traditional academic research conference, but focusing on an instrumental area. ‘Hands on’ Flute aims to bridge the gap between artistic production and academic research, creating opportunities to combine the artists’ and the researchers’ knowledge, for mutual benefit. This first meeting will take place at the University of Aveiro from April 10th to 13th, 2017.

 

Call for Proposals

The University of Aveiro, INET-md (Institute of Ethnomusicology, Centre for Studies in Music and Dance) and the Associação Portuguesa de Flautas, will host the research meeting Research ‘Hands on’ FLUTE, in Aveiro, Portugal, from the 10th to the 13th of April, 2017.

This research meeting aims to bring artistic production and academic research closer together, creating opportunities to combine the artists’ and the researchers’ knowledge, which will have benefits for all. The invited keynotes speakers and performers, who have already confirmed, are: Sophie Cherrier; Paolo Taballione; Mario Caroli; Sibel Pensel; Berten Dhollander; Monica Finco; Christine Erlander Beard; Michele Gori; Stefano Parrino; Francesco Parrino; Qi Wang; Marco Gaudino; Luca Bellini (as soon as new names are confirmed they will be added to this list).

This first edition in 2017 focuses on the vast instrumental area of the flute – historical and modern performance practices, repertoire, pedagogy, aesthetics, ethnomusicology, history, analysis, organology and interpretation. Proposals that centre on performance practices as research are particularly welcome. Lecture-recitals are the most natural format for these proposals.

The conference organisers accept submissions in Portuguese and Spanish, although English is preferable. Proposals that focus on the above aspects are particularly encouraged, although other proposals may also be accepted, once they lie within the general theme of the meeting. Proposals that focus on any research area relating to flute performance will also be considered.

Proposals should be submitted via the platform Easy Chair, formatted according to the nature of the proposal (in order to fulfil the form, the applicants should first create an Easy Chair account):

  • Lecture Recitals: The abstract should include information regarding the duration of the presentation, which may be between 30 and 45 minutes, and a short artistic CV of the presenter(s). These submissions may also include a link to a Youtube video of the proposed performance (you may choose to upload your video as ‘unlisted’, ‘private viewing’ or ‘public viewing’). The link must be included in the field ‘other documents’ on the platform. The proposer must also specify any technical requirements or materials necessary for the recital.
  • Papers: Communications will be of a 20 minute duration. The abstract should contain a maximum of 350 words.
  • Recitals: Recitals will have a maximum duration of 30 minutes. You must send a recording/demo, which will be evaluated by the Artistic and Scientific Commission. Please include a short artistic CV of the performer(s).

Symposium on Music, Education and Social Inclusion

London, 20th-21st July 2017

A symposium is to be held at the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) in London on July 20th and 21st 2017 to launch the Music, Education and Social Inclusion Study Group under the auspices of the ICTM.

Founding members include musicians, senior scholars and academics from Africa, Europe, the Caribbean, North America and Asia, reflecting the multicultural nature of the collective.

Historically excluded groups such as women and girls, ethnic minorities, vulnerabilities including disabilities and other marginalities have been systematically un- or under-represented in education, reflecting wider socially discriminatory practices that in turn are perpetrated and transmitted within the school system, shaping society at large beyond schools and academic institutions.

The symposium will focus on exploring multifaceted educational practices in relation to a wider spectrum of broader issues and thinking, such as:
• Education and Representation
• Issues of Identity in Education
• Social inclusion and Education
• Education and International Development
• Ethnomusicology, Transmission Practices (teaching/learning) and Social Inclusion
Other topics that might sit well within the broader agenda are welcome and encouraged.

Papers should be 20 minutes long, followed by 10 minutes of discussion and Q&A. Abstracts should be from 200 to 250 words in length and written in English; other languages might be considered on a case-by-case basis and only where the level of English is not sufficient to express concepts fully.
Alternative presentations – other than individual papers – are welcome and length can be negotiated on a case-by-case basis. Submissions in other forms (such as video) should be no longer than 5 minutes.

In order to make participation inclusive, and aware that traveling might not be an option for many who are interested in participating, a limited number of remote presentations through Skype will be considered, so applicants are encouraged to apply even in case they might not be able to attend in person.

Deadline for submission of proposals is 20th March 2017; please submit abstracts to Keith Howard (kh@soas.ac.uk) or Sara Selleri (Sara_Selleri@soas.ac.uk). Participants will be notified by the end of April 2017.

‘The living moment: Exploring improvisational practice’

Improvisation forms the basis of human communication from infancy to the end of life. It defines the moment-to-moment flow of activity in our everyday interactions and is fundamental to creativity and innovation.

Improvisation is also central to music, dance and somatic traditions across culture, time and space. Musical and movement improvisation can be put to work in many contexts, including the pedagogical, therapeutic and performative, to bring about transformation. Improvisation can be both process and product, and an agent of change.

In Dalcroze Eurhythmics and related fields of practice, musical and movement improvisation are the main means of communication between teacher and learner, therapist and client, and between participants themselves.

 

Call for proposals

We welcome presentations on improvisation, as it relates to Dalcroze Eurhythmics and music, movement and the mindful body more broadly. We embrace a wide range of disciplines and areas, such as: anthropology, architecture, biomedical science, communication science, cultural studies, dance studies, somatic practices, education, ethnomusicology, gender studies, history, literature, media studies, musicology, music therapy, philosophy, politics, psychology, sociology, theatre and performance studies, and visual arts.

We invite practitioners and researchers to share their knowledge, experience and scholarship on this theme. Conference topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Music-movement improvisation
  • Descriptions and theories of improvisation
  • Improvisation and embodiment
  • Improvisation in culture and improvisation as culture
  • Improvisation as social relationship or dialogue
  • Improvisation as process, as product, as means
  • Interdisciplinary and intermedial approaches to improvisation
  • Teaching improvisation
  • The role of improvisation in pedagogy, performance, therapy and research
  • Teaching as an improvisational practice
  • Assessing and evaluating improvisation
  • Developing curricula and educational material on improvisation
  • Improvisation and the professional development of teachers
  • The interaction of technology and improvisation
  • Improvisation and wellbeing
  • Personal and social development through improvisation
  • Improvisation and ethics (empowerment, social justice)
  • Improvisation and community
  • The historical development and transmission of improvisational practice in Dalcroze Eurhythmics and related fields

 

Types of presentation

  • Paper* (20 mins + 10 mins discussion) – research papers and reflections on practice
  • Workshop* (60 mins, including discussion) – an interactive session offering hands-on experience. These will be limited in number due to space and time restrictions

International Conference of Young Musicologists. Young Musicology Today: tendencies, challenges and perspectives

The aim of the conference is to integrate the musicological community through the creation of an international forum for exchanging ideas and research experiences. We encourage young musicologists to present results from ongoing studies and to engage in discussion on the future of musicology, its role and place in the contemporary culture. Currently, musicology, which is not only the study of music, is starting to perform social functions, becoming not only a field of scientific inquiry but one of use to society. During the conference, we would like to consider new avenues of research, new methodologies of musicologists’ work, and the challenges and career prospects faced by musicologists entering the labour market. It will also be an opportunity to consider the subject areas of interest to young musicology.

Subject areas for consideration include

  • New research perspectives in musicology
  • Music versus other arts
  • Music in the public space (sonosphere research)
  • Music in society (music and ideologies)
  • Music and the sacred
  • Music and science (e.g. psychology of music)
  • Challenges of modern ethnomusicology
  • The state and the form of contemporary music criticism
  • Source studies and music editing
  • Music librarianship – issues and challenges
  • Performance practice
  • Theory of music
  • Music and pop culture
  • Opera nowadays

The conference will incorporate both traditional lectures and panel discussions, during which groups of researchers conducting a joint project or studying similar subjects will be able to present the results of their studies or discuss a specific subject. We encourage the participants to organise their own panel sessions during the conference (due to time constraints, we suggest no more than four papers during one session; please indicate the person leading the session during registration).

In addition, the conference programme includes:

  • “A musicologist on the labour market” panel

This will be an opportunity for an in-depth discussion of the current employment situation of musicology graduates in Poland and abroad, and for the presentation of experiences in this area. We encourage participation in this panel session by musicologists – musical life animators, employees of media and cultural and educational associations and institutions etc.

  • Masters’ lectures (plenary speakers)
  • The conference programme includes additional events, such as concerts, sightseeing in Krakow, and exhibitions.

A publication of the collected papers presented at the conference is also planned.

Conference language: English.

Schedule

  • Accepting applications with abstracts – until 31th of May 2016.
  • Information about accepted papers – by 30 June 2016.
  • Conference dates: 7-9 November 2016.

Musikwissenschaft: Generationen, Netzwerke, Denkstrukturen

We are happy to announce the upcoming conference dealing with the history and sociology of musicology:

Musikwissenschaft: Generationen, Netzwerke, Denkstrukturen

Carl von Ossietzky Universität Oldenburg, Institut für Musik
16.01.2015–17.01.2015, Oldenburg, BIS-Saal

Eine soziologisch und historisch fundierte Wissenschaftsforschung der Musikwissenschaft stellt nach wie vor ein Desiderat dar. Die interdisziplinäre Tagung „Musikwissenschaft: Generationen, Netzwerke, Denkstrukturen“ will dazu beitragen, entsprechende Perspektiven in der Selbstreflexion des Faches zu etablieren. Denn obwohl Geschichte und Soziologie der Musikwissenschaften heute gewiss nicht mehr als terra incognita gelten können, bleiben Denkstrukturen und Netzwerke, die als Räume und Grenzen auf den wissenschaftlichen Landkarten erscheinen müssten, merkwürdig verschwommen.

In vier Panels der Tagung – Generationen und Netzwerke, Sprachen und Kulturen, Denkstrukturen und Wissenskonzepte, Öffentlichkeiten und Medien – markieren Beiträge aus Musikwissenschaften, Kommunikationswissenschaft und Soziologie nicht nur zentrale Gebiete dieser Landkarte. Sie spüren darüber hinaus der Interaktion von Forschung und gesellschaftlichen Strukturen nach und reflektieren am Beispiel der Musikwissenschaft Zusammenhänge zwischen Kommunikation, Macht und Wissen.

Ein abschließender Roundtable weitet unter dem Titel „Warum Wissenschaftsforschung?“ noch einmal die Perspektive, um gemeinsam über Chancen und Notwendigkeiten wissenschaftsgeschichtlicher und wissenschaftssoziologischer Ansätze nachzudenken. Die Tagung bietet dabei ein generationenübergreifendes Diskussionsforum für Wissenschaftlerinnen und Wissenschaftler verschiedener Disziplinen und wird gerade der jungen Forschergeneration eine Stimme geben.

III Symposium on the Paradigms of Teaching Musical Instruments in the 21th Century

Department of Music – University of Evora (Portugal)
5-7 December 2013

Call for Papers
To some extent education shapes personalities and aesthetic values. In arts education it is common to observe a mismatch between what is taught and contemporary production. A good example of this is generally found in music education, and in particular the teaching of the musical instrument. Many techniques, methods and repertoire which are used today for teaching an instrument are the same that were used over one hundred years ago. Aware that music education institutions – as any institution – tend to react slowly to the changes and progress of the overall music creation outside the academia, we need to constantly measure our educational tools, so that what we truly teach represents where we come from and prepares and envisions artistic possibilities for the future. In order to discuss and contextualize these issues, this symposium welcomes article presentations and workshops related to the topic of instrument teaching covering three broad chronological periods: (1) an overview of the past, (2) the present, and (3) the future. Thus, for each of these chronological periods, work can be presented from different areas of research, such as: historical musicology, performance practice, composition/repertoire, pedagogy (e.g. methods and techniques; the teaching of ‘old’ or new instruments), ‘new musicology’ (e.g. gender studies and ‘new’ music styles), and music technology.

Confirmed Keynote Speakers:
Professor Lucy Green (Institute of Education, University of London, UK)
Professor Maravillas Diaz (Universidad del País Vasco, Spain)

Relevant information and deadlines:
-Official languages of the Symposium are Portuguese, English and Spanish
-Article presentation proposals (20 min.) containing title, name of author(s), small bio(s), and abstract (max. 350 words), should be sent until August 31st to stmi@uevora.pt
-Workshops proposals (50 min.) containing title, name of instructor/facilitator, small bio, and explanatory note of the workshop (max. 500 words), should be sent until August 31st to stmi@uevora.pt
-Acceptance of proposals will be announced by September 15th
-Registration of accepted proposals will take place between September 15th and September 30th upon payment of a registration fee of 60€ (euros).
-Further information and details will be announced in due time at: http://www.unimem.uevora.pt/site/

First International Conference of Dalcroze Studies

24-26 July 2013
Coventry University, UK

www.eventsforce.net/dalcrozeconference

Our conference
In recent years there has been an upsurge in the academic study of embodiment and the centrality of movement and rhythm in music cognition, education and performance. This conference seeks to extend our understanding of Dalcroze Eurhythmics from these and a wide variety of other perspectives: historical, cultural, socio-political, theoretical, philosophical and empirical. It also seeks to promote interdisciplinary dialogue between researchers into Dalcroze Eurhythmics and those from a wide field of related disciplines and practices.

2013 sees the centenary of the London School of Dalcroze Eurhythmics (LSDE), founded to promote the teaching method of Emile Jaques-Dalcroze (1865-1950) in the UK. This is the first international conference of Dalcroze Studies and is part of the celebrations to mark the centenary of the LSDE.
