Annual Conference BASEES Slavonic and East European Music Study Group (SEEM)

Saturday 17 February 2024, Durham
Institute of Advanced Study
Durham University, United Kingdom
Event format: in-person only

SEEM gratefully acknowledges the support of Durham University’s Institute of Advanced Study and School of Modern Languages and Cultures.

Originally founded as the BASEES Study Group on Russian and East European Music (REEM), this network held its inaugural conference at the University of Bristol in 2006 and has since organised regular events around the UK and abroad. SEEM brings together scholars working at the interface of musicology and Slavonic/Eastern European studies, and seeks to foster international and interdisciplinary connections to support research on music and cultural life across the region.

Our 2024 colloquium is conceived as an opportunity to bring to attention significant new work and to reflect on the current state of our field. We are pleased to announce the participation of two notable scholars who will be in residence as Visiting Fellows at Durham University’s Institute of Advanced Study—Valentina Sandu-Dediu, Rector of New Europe College, Bucharest, and a leading expert on Romanian music; and Kevin Bartig, Professor of Musicology at Michigan State University and a notable scholar of Russian/Soviet music and musical life. Also joining us will be Olha Kushniruk, a Ukrainian music specialist who is currently a British Academy ‘Researchers At Risk’ Fellow at the University of Cambridge, and the Russian/Soviet music expert Christoph Flamm, Professor of Musicology at the University of Heidelberg.

Proposals are invited for presentations on Slavonic/Eastern European music and allied topics. The conference committee would particularly welcome contributions on subjects that have received limited attention in English-language scholarship.

The organisers welcome proposals from researchers at any career stage, including postgraduate researchers. The working language of the conference will be English.

Abstracts of no more than 400 words and short biographical notes (c.200 words) should be sent to by Tuesday 31 October 2023. Notifications of acceptance will be sent by mid-November 2023.

A limited number of bursaries will be available to assist graduate students and presenters without access to institutional support. If you wish to be considered for a bursary, you should indicate this in your covering letter when submitting your abstract. Please be aware that we are unlikely to be in a position to cover participants’ costs in full.

The colloquium will be conducted in alignment with BASEES’ current policies on participation in its annual conferences and research events. We welcome all students and scholars who oppose Russia’s war on Ukraine. Anyone supporting Russia’s war, or justifying it in any way, will not be welcome.

Colleagues based in Russia or Belarus will participate in a personal
capacity. BASEES’s anti-harassment policy will apply.

Convenors: Philip Bullock, Katerina Levidou, Ivana Medić, and Patrick Zuk.
