Global Musics and Musical Communities

May 10-11, 2019 
Deadline: January 7, 2019
Call for Papers

UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music, Department of Ethnomusicology, Los Angeles, CA

“Global Musics and Musical Communities” builds from the question of how certain types of music travel and lead to the formation of new musical communities around the world. Genres such as hip-hop, gamelan, and taiko are examples of musical genres that have become global in the past century. These genres are regularly performed in locales that may have little or no connection to the genre’s country of origin. Although many important studies of global musics consider how music has traveled via structures of Western imperialism, media technologies, and along diasporic paths, very few have actually engaged in trying to understand the musical reasons as to why certain musical genres move with apparent ease. Indeed, there are certain musics that compel people—who may have little or no connection to the genre’s origin—not just to listen to, but also to learn and perform such genres.Papers engaging in historical, ethnographic, music-analytical, and theoretical approaches are welcome. The program committee is particularly interested in papers that address:

- Music and circulation

- Dance, movement, mobility, embodiment

- Rhythm

- (Mis/)translation, transliteration, and transformation of (musical) texts

- Musical transmission and adaptability

- Flexibility in terms of form and improvisation

- Musical community formation and maintenance

- Cross-cultural pedagogies

- Racial and gendered dynamics in the global circulation of music

Abstracts should be sent to globalmusics.conference2019 -at- by January 7, 2019. Please include name and affiliation in the e-mail. Notifications of acceptance will be sent by the end of January 2019.
