15th Conference of Association RIdIM (Repertoire International d’Iconographie Musicale):
“Visual Manifestations of Power and Repression in Music, Dance, and Dramatic Arts”
9-10 November 2015 – The Ohio State University Libraries, Columbus, Ohio
Deadline: 22 June 2015
The Conference will address research related to manifestations of power and repression reflected in the visual representation of music, dance, and dramatic arts of all periods, cultures and media, including topics related to
- the oppression of peoples and systems.
- the establishment and performance of power, supremacy and repression.
- peoples in diaspora and slavery.
- Colonial and Postcolonial discourses.
- social classes, ethnic groups, gender, sexuality.
- economic, social, religious and political discrimination.
- media and style-related discourses (for example, “photography and power”).
Also of particular interest are papers and posters that contextualise objects and issues of visual culture in its wider sense and thus present contemporary media within the subject areas. We would also be interested in papers and posters that focus on meta-discourses on manifestations of power and repression as linked with the representation of music, dance, and dramatic arts.
In recognition of the fact that the conference is hosted by The Ohio State University Libraries, the home of the Editorial Centre of the Association RIdIM database, sessions and activities related to data strategies will form an important part of the Conference. Paper and poster proposals in this area are therefore most welcome.
Paper presentations will be 20 minutes in length followed by 10 minutes time for discussion. For poster presentations a specific time slot will be assigned prior to the conference.
Proposals for papers and posters must be submitted by Monday, 22 June 2015. Authors will be notified about acceptance of submissions by Friday, 21 August 2015.
