Conference Announcement and Call for Papers: MUSIC and EMPATHY
University of Hull – Saturday 9 November 2013
This one-day SEMPRE conference hosted by the University of Hull will include invited
presentations, a specialist workshop, and selected submissions from researchers on the
theme of music and empathy. In recent years there has been a growing interest in empathy in the fields of music psychology and education. Research in music and empathy now spans a variety of contexts, including education and development, emotion, expressiveness, and performance. This conference seeks to draw together current research from a range of areas, and to encourage and stimulate discussion on research in music and empathy.
Contributions are welcome from researchers at all levels and are particularly encouraged from postgraduate students. Submissions should show how the topic relates to the conference theme. Accepted submissions will be broadly organised into themes and presentations will be chaired by leading researchers.
Please send titles and abstracts for spoken presentations (max. 200 words) by email to Caroline Waddington (contact details below) by Friday 16 August 2013.
