II International Conference Wind Bands in focus: Band Research Paradigms in Spain

University of Jaén, Jaén (Spain), 30-31 January 2020

CFP Deadline: 15 November 2019


This scientific meeting is conceived as an encounter for researchers who, coming from different disciplines and interests, seek to have of space for collaborative discussion to share advances, methodological problems and any concern on their everyday investigation on Wind Bands. Therefore, the event is defined as a thinking tank for research procedures discussion and analysis (source treatment, methodology, technics, and skills) and not as a venue for final results presentation, as it is expected to bring individual efforts to fruition, to create networks and to transfer knowledge to society.

In the Digital Era, Musicological Studies need to be rethought in the light of the new social exigencies, the digital Humanities, inter and transdisciplinary studies or the socio-critical approach. So Wind Bands, as an object and as a pretext, need to be revisited from new perspectives, coming out their current marginal place in local chronicles. Among these new approaches, Microhistory and Everyday Life, Urban Studies, Musical Landscape, Gender Studies, Reception, Edition, Heritage Recovery, Record History, Musical Education, Social Demography, Organology, Parabandistic Industry or Relationships and Hybridisation with oral tradition should be underlined. 

All proposals should be sent using the online form available hereand they should include:

  • Title and abstract (200 words, maximum)
  • Personal data, institutional affiliation, curriculum vitae (150 words, maximum), e-mail address
  • Technical media necessary for oral presentation 

Official languages of the Congress: Spanish, Portuguese and English.

Deadline for receipt of proposals: November 15, 2019.

Acceptance or rejection notice: December 10, 2019.

Program publication: January 10, 2020.
