“Current Musicology Anniversary Conference”
March 28-29, 2015 – Columbia University
Deadline: January 15, 2015
Keynote: Georgina Born (University of Oxford)
Submissions are invited for a conference commemorating the fiftieth anniversary of the journal Current Musicology. As a tribute to Current Musicology’s multidisciplinary orientation, which combines perspectives from different areas of music scholarship, we welcome proposals for 20-minute paper presentations on any topic related to the areas of historical musicology, ethnomusicology, music theory and analysis, philosophy of music, popular music studies, music education, and related fields. Papers presented at the conference will be considered for publication in the journal’s celebratory special issue.
To submit a proposal, please e-mail your name, institution, e-mail address, and an abstract of no more than 250 words to current-musicology at columbia.edu by January 15, 2015, with the subject line „Conference Submission.“ The committee will select papers anonymously. All scholars who submit abstracts will be notified of the committee’s decision by February 1, 2015.
Georgina Born, Professor of Music and Anthropology at the University of Oxford, will give the conference’s keynote address. The conference will also feature a roundtable discussion on approaches to music studies, revisiting a theme from one of the journal’s most popular issues (Current Musicology 53, 1993, „Approaches to the Discipline“). The panel will feature Professors Kofi Agawu (Princeton University), Lydia Goehr (Columbia University), Lawrence Kramer (Fordham University), and Ingrid Monson (Harvard University).
Please direct all inquiries to conference co-chairs, Orit Hilewicz (oh2160 at columbia.edu) and Tom Smith (tcs2128 at columbia.edu).
