Performance Studies Network International Conference

Norwegian Academy of Music, Oslo, 5-8 July 2018

The international Performance Studies Network comprises professional and amateur musicians, scholars working in a range of musicological disciplines (including music history, analysis, psychology, pedagogy, ethnomusicology and composition), and colleagues from the creative industries. Initially funded by the UK’s Arts and Humanities Research Council, the Research Centre for Musical Performance as Creative Practice (CMPCP) established the PSN as an inclusive and cohesive community of performance studies specialists and other interested parties to promote musical and musicological debate, and to enable the development of new and more diverse research activity. The first three international conferences at the University of Cambridge (in July 2011, April 2013 and July 2014) laid the foundation for dialogue and cross-disciplinary engagement. This was further developed at the fourth international conference held at Bath Spa University (July 2016).

The next Performance Studies Network International Conference, to be held from 5 to 8 July 2018, will be hosted by the Norwegian Academy of Music in Oslo. This will be the first PSN conference to be held outside the United Kingdom, a development that celebrates the truly international constituency of musical performance studies.

The Performance Studies Network maintains the online PSN Resource Guide and hosts the email forum PERF-STUD-NET, where the Call for Papers and further details will be posted approximately twelve months before the conference.
