16 April 2018, Senate House, London
[Deadline for proposals: 12 January 2018
Institute of Musical Research Study Day
in association with the School of Advanced Study, University of London
Keynote Speakers: Professor Neil Heyde (Royal Academy of Music, London); Professor Darla Crispin (Norwegian Academy of Music, Oslo); Ian Pace (City, University of London)
While autoethnographic approaches have received significant application to the discipline of music internationally, for instance in Australia (Bartleet & Ellis, 2009) and the US (Manovski, 2014), this study day aims to raise its visibility in the UK. It will consolidate the contributions made by studies in areas such as music education (Wiley & Franklin, 2017; Kinchin & Wiley, 2017), sonic arts (Findlay-Walsh, 2018), and composition and performance (Armstrong & Desbruslais, 2014). It also offers significant opportunity for dialogue with academic fields such as the social sciences, education, and health studies.
The event will bring together composers, performers, musicologists, and music teachers, seeking to explore different modes of autoethnography with a view to establishing an analytical vein in continuation of previous work undertaken within music studies. With an emphasis on transcending so-called 'mesearch', it will cultivate music research that enables scholar-practitioners at all levels to locate their experiences within a robust intellectual framework as well as to articulate their relationship to wider sociocultural contexts.
20-minute papers (plus 10 minutes for questions) are invited on any aspect relevant to the study day's themes.
Proposals for panels of 3-4 papers (1.5-2 hours) on a closely related topic are also warmly welcomed, as are proposals for roundtables (3-5 participants, 1 hour duration).
Abstracts of no more than 300 words should be e-mailed by 12 January 2018 to Christopher Wiley, c.wiley -at- surrey.ac.uk.
