The rich musical heritage of the world is receiving increasing attention in ethnomusicology, music theory and analysis, music history, music psychology, and music informatics. The Analytical Approaches to World Music conferences bring together scholars to explore the panoply of global musical traditions, both past and present, that lie outside the purview of Western Art Music, from the broadest possible array of theoretical, cultural, historical and analytical perspectives, in order to foster interdisciplinary and cross-cultural dialogue and promote new approaches and methods. Keynote speakers for 2018 will be John Roeder (University of British Columbia, Canada) and Martin Stokes (King’s College London, UK), and the conference will include a plenary session, workshops, and a variety of concerts.
We will welcome proposals for spoken papers, posters, special sessions, workshops, lecture recitals and alternative formats that include a substantial original analytical or theoretical component.
A more detailed announcement, including the Call for Papers and a link to the conference website, will be posted in the next few weeks.
