October 31-November 3, 2019, Boston
American Musicological Society,
Deadline for Abstract submission: April 30, 2018
The AMS Ecocriticism Study Group will partner with the AMS Ludomusicology Study Group for a session of collaborative lightning talks at the November 2019 conference in Boston. Our session will feature paired presentations: a member from each study group (new members welcome!) will pair up and give contrasting or complementary papers of 10 minutes each (20 minutes total per pair) on themes of environmental catastrophe, apocalyptic and post-apocalyptic sound, and interactivity in sound and music that invites listeners to experience transition and consequence firsthand. No experience in the other subfield is required for participation, only a willingness to approach the concept of games through an ecocritical lens, or an ecocritical musical practice through a ludic lens.
The broad question that this session wishes to explore is: how might ecomusicological approaches inform ludomusicological work (which often implicitly discusses the conveyance of environmental spaces through sound), and how might an ecomusicologist use a ludic approach to participation and interactivity to expand their consideration of a work’s significance and meaning?
See the full Call for Papers for further details and submission instructions.
Members seeking partners can email Study Group chairs (Ludo: DanaMPlank AT gmail.com; Eco: jacobacohen86 AT gmail.com), post within the AMS Music and Media Study Group Facebook page, send out calls via Twitter to find scholars with similar interests.
