The Guitar Century (c. 1880-1980): Global Trends and Local Contexts


2-4 August 2019, Melbourne
Call for Papers: International Conference
The University of Melbourne, Australia
Melbourne Conservatorium of Music (Ian Potter Southbank Centre),

The twentieth century witnessed the prodigious rise in popularity of the guitar in its diverse forms, with the instrument becoming a global icon by the 1970s. Over the previous century the guitar had evolved rapidly, both as an instrument and in relation to roles it fulfilled in different cultures. During this period it not only embodied a variety of forms, but became associated with a range of playing styles and music genres, many of which continue to be popular with today’s performers and audiences. This conference will explore both global trajectories and local manifestations of the guitar during this dynamic century in the instrument’s history.

Keynote presenters to include Elijah Wald and Walter Clark.

We invite papers that investigate the guitar and its worlds from a number of perspectives in the period dating from around 1880 to 1980. Proposals may address issues including:

The evolution of classical, folk, popular, jazz or rock guitar traditions

Michael Christoforidis and Ken Murray (Conference Convenors)
