Conference outline


On 22nd July 1919, in the Alhambra Theatre in London, the Diaghilev Ballets Russes premiered
one of the most relevant works in the history of Western dance and music, the international
projection of Spanish culture and the configuration of the Spanishness imaginary. This ballet
was based on the adaptation of Pedro Antonio de Alarcón’s book by María Lejárraga, and had
a score by Manuel de Falla, set and costume designs by Pablo Picasso and a choreography by
Léonide Massine. Since that moment, the ballet has been performed a huge number of times
around the world, with versions by the most significant choreographers, and still lives in the
repertoire of some current dance companies.
Moreover, The Three-Cornered Hat has focused the attention of many critics and scholars, who
have built a large historiography throughout the years, both in Spain and abroad, which might

Public Musicology Symposium

PUBLIC MUSICOLOGY INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM
Organized by the Society for Musicology in Ireland

VENUE DETAILS:
The Kevin Barry Recital Room
National Concert Hall, Dublin
Wednesday 26 April 2017
Time: 08.30-18.30

This international one-day symposium on Public Musicology, organized by  the Society for Musicology in Ireland, is in accordance with the aims of that society: to nurture and highlight the role of music in education and broader society on a national and international platform. The aim of this symposium is to ask how musicology relates to the ‘public voice’, the voice of culture at large. At a time when the government is calling for a new level of connectedness between higher education and wider society, academics are under increasing pressure to address this issue of civic engagement. Additionally, as many of our doctoral graduates do not follow an academic career path, there is an urgent need to offer alternative pathways to graduate students forging a career beyond the academy.

Our eleven guest speakers will explore a diverse range of themes: careers in and beyond musicology, community-based projects, curating concerts and issues of programming, musicology in journalism, musicology and civic engagement, music theory, musicological entrepreneurship, public musicology in Ireland, public musicology projects, and musicology and the media. This symposium aims to bring together the published scholar but also the journalist, the writer of programme notes, the teacher, the radio broadcaster and any others in a position to affect the wider discourse on music. The primary objective of the symposium is to raise awareness of how music scholars, educators, music journalists and industry professionals engage with the public at large.
