In recent years, musicology has turned to mapping projects as a means for analysis, organisation and presentation of research. Fuelled by the digital humanities, and the increasing accessibility of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) software, musicologists can visualise and analyse complicated trends across time and place with greater ease than ever before.
Cardiff University is holding a study day to investigate what the mapping of performances, performers and performing spaces across cities, countries and the globe, in both the historical and contemporary contexts, can reveal (or not as the case may be) about the ways in which musical culture is created, disseminated, consumed, crosses boundaries and continents. A second line of inquiry concerns composers and artists who have mapped space and/or artistic procedures/performance in the course of their work.
The study day invites papers underpinned by the studies of cultural transfer and transnationalism in music, but which focus on mapping as an innovative way of interpreting historical and geographical data. In addition, we welcome papers dealing with methodological issues, and the establishment of effective tools and a critical framework for the growing number of such studies.
Abstracts for 20-minute papers of no more than 300 words should be sent to Clair Rowden [rowdencs -at- cardiff.ac.uk] by 30 April 2019, and applicants will be informed whether they have been successful by 15 May 2019.
Registration, including tea/coffee and lunch, will cost £25 for the day. Details of how to book and accommodation available will be provided in due course.
Dr Clair Rowden (Chair, Cardiff University), Dr Jonathan Hicks (Newcastle University), Dr Lola San Martín Arbide (EHESS, Paris), Mr Benjamin Davis (Cardiff University)
The Musical Mapping day is supported by an award from the British Academy/Leverhulme Trust & Cardiff University.
