The First International Conference on Women’s Work in Music

4 –7 September 2017, Bangor University, Wales

Deadline for Proposals:  1 March 2017. See also Call for Papers.

Proposal Submissions: wwm@bangor.ac.uk

The First International Conference on Women’s Work in Music aims to bring together academics, researchers and music professionals to share their research and experience of women working in music. The conference will explore and analyse the diverse historical, cultural and political themes of women’s work in music, and will provide a platform for participants to present and discuss recent developments and concerns as well as practical challenges encountered and solutions adopted.

The conference is organised by the School of Music at Bangor University, Wales and has been timed to mark the 40th anniversary of the death of Grace Williams (1906-77), one of the first professional Welsh composers of the 20th century to attain international recognition.

The First International Conference on Women’s Work in Music will seek to both celebrate the achievements of women musicians, and to critically explore and discuss the changing contexts of women’s work in music on the international stage. Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals which engage with a range of methodologies and perspectives on women’s work in music, whether these be from an academic, practice-based or educational viewpoint. A detailed Call for Papers has been published by the SMA here.

The Conference Committee will make its final decision on the abstracts by 3 April 2017, and contributors will be informed immediately thereafter. Further information about the programme, registration, accommodation and the conference dinner will be posted on the website after that date.
