October 26-28, 2023, Oviedo
IV Musam / Sedem Conference
Study Group “Music and (Latin)American Studies”
Spanish Society for Musicology
University of Oviedo (Oviedo, Spain), Historic Building
Deadline for submission of proposals: May 7, 2023
Confirmation of accepted proposals: June 4, 2023
Ibero-American music is the result of multiple crossroads, exchanges, and appropriations as a consequence of massive migration processes in, from, and towards the American continent throughout its history. The resulting deterritorialization, fragmentation, reterritorialization, and production of new sound practices shape a complex and multidimensional disciplinary object conditioned not only by globalizing technological innovations but also by new forms of sensitivity and reception. The ideal categories of authenticity, hybridization, and transculturation—understood as identity, aesthetic, and political rhetoric, as well as discursive spaces for negotiation between the foreign and the familiar—have thus articulated historical intersections and historiographical discourses that need to be critically revisited. This conference encourages the study of Ibero-American music through the lens of a double discourse that includes both the expression of the sonic crossings, encounters, and hybridizations in the past, and well as the narratives that seek to explain or subsume Ibero-American music within ideological-cultural projects over time. From this perspective, we welcome proposals relating to individual or group discourses, their sociocultural components and connections, as well as the interpretations and resignifications proposed or imposed by institutions, spaces of cultural power, historiography, and criticism, among others.
Those interested in participating in the IV MUSAM Conference, which will be held in person, can send their proposals on the following topics (or others close to the general focus of the conference):
* Authenticity, hybridization, and transculturation in Ibero-American music: theoretical and methodological sources and tools
* Circulation, reception, appropriation, and resignification of musical and choreographic practices, repertoires, genres, instruments, and techniques
* Trajectories, circuits, intersections, and hybridizations between the Luso-Brazilian and Hispanic-American universes
* Authenticity, originality, mestizaje, and other mythical structures
* Intertextuality in Ibero-American music: analytical proposals
* Influences, quotes, appropriations, variants, versions, and covers
* Ibero-American music, technological dynamics, and digital environments
* Memory formation processes: writing, orality, and aurality
