Reminder: Registration Open: Material Cultures of Music Notation, Utrecht, 20-22 April 2018
Registration for the „Material Cultures of Music Notation“ conference at Utrecht University will close on 11 April.
The conference approaches notation not just as a vessel of music-theoretical knowledge, but as an object of social interaction and cultural exchange. It encourages an interdisciplinary approach to a topic that has been at the centre of musicology’s disciplinary identity, by engaging work in media studies, material culture, science and technology studies, and sensory studies. We are delighted with the breadth and depth of the programme, which brings together (ethno)musicologists and scholars in other fields working ona variety of forms of musical notation, to reconsider the nature of ntoation in terms of the mediation of cultural identity, creative agency, and the musical imagination. We’re particularly please to welcome our guest speakers, Roger Moseley (Music, Cornell University), Beth Williamson (History of Art, University of Bristol), and Kiene Brillenburg-Wurth (Languages, Literature and Communication, Utrecht University). A full conference ticket is priced at €160 and includes tea/coffee breaks, lunches, and a wine reception and conference dinner on Saturday. Day passes and tickets without a dinner can also be purchased, and there is a 50% discount for students and unwaged/unaffiliated researchers.
