  • changing performance and/or audience practices
  • processes of change within a musical work
  • the changing face of global markets and effects on music circulation

  • changing analytic apparatuses and the shifting priorities of music theory

Proposals for papers or performances, in the form of 300-word abstracts, should be emailed to no later than December 8, 2014. Please include in the email the name(s) and institutional affiliation(s) of the presenter(s) as well as a list of audio/video equipment requests.
