SUBMISSION DEADLINE: 31 MARCH 2015
The Ninth Biennial International Conference on Music Since 1900 (ICMSN) will take place at the University of Glasgow, School of Culture and Creative Arts, from Monday 7th September to Wednesday 9th September, 2015. We invite proposals for papers on any topic relating to 20th- and 21st-century music conceived in the broadest possible terms, including sound studies and inter-media arts. We welcome all methodological approaches, and particularly encourage submissions that question disciplinary boundaries and/or propose interdisciplinary perspectives.
*PLEASE NOTE: on Sept. 7, the ICMSN conference will coincide with the first ‘Workshop’ events of the RSE-funded initiative ‘Building a British Audiovisual Research Network (BARN)’, some of which will be open to conference attendees.
Proposals in the following categories will be considered:
• Papers: 20 minutes maximum, with 10 minutes for discussion. Please submit a 250-word (maximum) abstract.
• Paper sessions: 3 or 4 papers, each of 20 minutes maximum, with 10 minutes for discussion. Please submit a 250-word (maximum) summary of the session, plus a 250-word (maximum) abstract for each session participant.
• Lecture-recitals, including lectures illustrated by sound diffusions or audio-visual screenings. Please submit a 250-word (maximum) summary, plus participant CVs and recordings/scores/other details of works to be included in the event.
We will only accept one proposal of each type per applicant. Proposals should not duplicate presentations being given at other conferences or events close in time to ICMSN 2015.
Please send your proposal as a Word attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org, indicating whether you need any AV equipment or a piano.
Successful applicants will be informed by 1 May 2015.
