Conference on performance studies
May 31st-June 2nd, 2013 – Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, Porto Alegre, Brazil
The Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul will host PERFORMA, a conference on performance studies, from May 31st through June 2nd, 2013 in Porto Alegre, Brazil. The keynote-speakers will be Prof. Eric Clarke, from the University of Oxford, Prof. Paulo Assis, from the University Nova of Lisbon/Orpheus Institute (Ghent), and Prof. Luca Chiantore, from the Escola Superior de Musica da Catalunya.
This conference seeks to generate and present new perspectives on musical performance through interdisciplinary dialogue. The main theme for the 2013 edition will be artistic research and musical performance. Submissions are now invited; we particularly welcome submissions that address artistic research as a methodological outlook and that present practice-based inquiry. The conference will also consider proposals on any aspect of performance studies such as performance science, philosophy and performance, performance practice, music pedagogy, musicology, ethnomusicology and performance analysis.
We welcome abstracts of a maximum of 350 words for paper presentations, pre-formed panels, lecture-recitals, and posters.
Abstracts should be sent to
performa at ca.ua.pt. The submission deadline is January 14th, 2013.
General enquiries (registration, travel, lodging) should be sent to
lucnoda at gmail.com.
Abstracts and performance proposals will be reviewed by a panel, and presenters will be advised as to their acceptance or otherwise by mid-February, 2013. The deadline for the submission of proceedings articles (accepted authors only) is March 18th, 2013.
