7th Biennial International Conference on Analytical Approaches to World Musics ; 10th International Workshop on Folk Music Analysis

June 14–17, 2022, Sheffield
University of Sheffield, UK

The year 2022 marks the seventh installment of the AAWM International Biennial Conference series and the 10th installment of the International Workshop for Folk Music Analysis. Exploration of the rich musical heritage of the world continues to receive increasing attention from a broad array of theoretical, cultural, historical, psychological, empirical, informatics, and analytical perspectives. Analytical Approaches to World Music and the International Workshop for Folk Music Analysis 2022 bring together scholars to explore the panoply of global musical traditions, both past and present, that lie outside the purview of European Art Music in order to foster interdisciplinary and cross-cultural dialogue and promote new approaches and methods.

The meeting will include three special panel sessions:

Analyzing Music and Dance

Representing Musical Sound in Expanded Contexts

Vocal and Instrumental Music as Hunting and Herding Practices

The meeting will also feature three keynote lectures including Brenda M. Romero, Xavier Serra, and another speaker to be determined.

AAWM 2022 welcomes submissions that examine the world’s musical traditions from any analytical or theoretical angle, including (but not limited to) ethnographic, historical, formal, computational, and cognitive perspectives. Submission formats include papers, posters, special sessions, lecture-recitals, and workshops. Due to the uncertain future regarding travel restrictions, AAWM 2022 will be held as a hybrid event with the option for remote participation.

Graduate students and scholars within five years of receiving the PhD will be considered for the Rob Schultz Junior Scholar Award, established in 2016 to honor the memory of the co-founder of the Analytical Approaches to World Music journal and conference series. The best paper presented by a junior scholar will be published in the journal, and the author will also receive a modest cash award.
