Call for papers
Eleventh meeting of the International Musicological Society (IMS) Study Group Music and Media (MaM)
The past decade has seen a growing scholarly interest in questions relating to music’s role and function in propaganda contexts. Music that appears in journalist contexts has not been in the focus of research yet. What matters in this context is that it shares features with propaganda music. Music in propaganda and journalism can serve both educational and demagogic policies and functions. It is this border area between information and disinformation of the masses that the eleventh MaM meeting aims at exploring. For more information please check the MaM and LNU homepage
The conference will take place at the Linnæus University Växjö (LNU), Sweden, from June 7 to 9 and will be hosted by the Linnaeus University Centre for Intermedial and Multimodal Studies (IMS).
