ABOUT

5th Academic Conference on Music, Communication and Performance

For a long time, performers weren't being taken very seriously outside concert halls. Musicologists monopolized knowledge about music and told performers how to think and what to do, while performers listened or not, the latter being most often the case, creating two compartmentalized fields. The situation is flipping around now, with performers explaining how they think about music and performing, and musicologists trying to include that kind of knowledge in their writing. At least, this is what we have been doing at the AEMC in the past five years.
 

Scholars and performers are invited to apply with papers or performance proposals on any topic and any music. Every year, though, the AEMC conference focuses on a main theme. The theme of the 5th edition of the AEMC annual Conference on Music, Communication and Performance is "Music and Politics". Keynote speaker will be Professor James Garratt, author of Music and Politics: A Critical Introduction (CUP, 2018). The keynote performance, to be announced, will also present music connected to the conference's main theme.

The conference will be online, like the 3rd and 4th edition, and this will be the case until we will be completely out of the pandemic. We have also noticed that this format is more inclusive, allowing people who normally do not have university funds and other forms of reimbursement (like students or independent scholars and performers) to attend. We value the contribution coming from academic people just like from outsiders. 

See the Registration Form below for participation fee and application procedure.

Formats: 15-minute academic presentations (+ 5 minutes of discussion) and artistic performances (max 30 minutes); poster presentations, round-tables, panels, and other innovative forms of presentation may also be considered. The conference language is English throughout
