CFP Surrealism and music in France

surrealismfranceSurrealism and music in France 1924-1952: interdisciplinary and international contexts
Senate House, University of London, Friday 8 June 2018
Paris was the principal centre of surrealist activity and the focus of connections between surrealist literature, ethnology, sociology, visual arts and music. The links between surrealism and the emerging disciplines of ethnology and ethnomusicology redefined the concept of exoticism in France and were the subject of a good deal of polemical debate. However, connections between surrealism and music have been little explored, although it is clear the movement had a decisive influence on major French composers such as Pierre Boulez, Olivier Messiaen and André Jolivet. This study day initiates a transdisciplinary and international dialogue and will situate music at the heart of these debates. The day will end with a linked piano recital by the outstanding young pianist Alexander Soares. CFP Surrealism and music in France weiterlesen

CFP Curating Resistance Punk as Archival Method
Deadline: November 15, 2017

February 9-10, 2018
Punk’s resistant literacies and performances are often in defiance of institutional rigors that carve exclusionary boundaries. Yet punk’s contested annals are increasingly not only part of but also help shape institutional efforts to exceed canonic representations. Bringing together scholars, musicians, fans, writers, and community members, including bands, public intellectuals, and members of the UCLA Library Special Collections “Punk Archive,” Curating Resistance: Punk as Archival Method encourages community building within, across, and beyond the university.

CFP Future Present Current Practices in Pop Music Studies

Future Present Current Practices in Pop Music Studies

19-20 June 2018; Department of Musicology, Uppsala University, Sweden
From its emergence, pop music, broadly defined, has been conceptualized as a culturally embedded practice. Adapting theoretical and methodological tools from various fields, its study has transgressed disciplinary boundaries and emphasized the complex relations of the cultural, socio-economic, and political contexts of pop music. This conference seeks to provide a space for deep engagements in pop music and its various contexts. It aims to explore current theoretical and methodological developments in pop music studies across thematic and disciplinary borders, and to foster discourse surrounding future directions in pop music and its study.
