Music and Conflict: The Politics and Escapism of Wartime Culture

19-20 May 2023, Guildford
University of Surrey
IAGMR Conference 2023
Department of Music and Media, University of Surrey (Hybrid)

The Institute of Austrian and German Music Research (IAGMR) invites papers, panels, lecture recitals, and compositions for our conference on ‘Music and Conflict’.

This conference sets out to explore the various relationships between music and war across historical and contemporary Austrian and German contexts. In particular, the twin functions of music as either a product of war or a form of resistance against it are of interest. Papers might address the ways in which music has and continues to figure as a form of escapism, lamentation, or satire in times and places of war, conflict, violence, and military aggression in Germanophone lands. The historical remit of this conference is completely open to explore the deep involvement of musical composition, performance, criticism, and reception within any period of Austrian and German history.

We are particularly keen to receive papers from any subdiscipline of music, or music-adjacent discipline with a focus on music and war in Austria and/or Germany, including:

* Historical and Cultural Musicology

* Music Analysis

* Performance Studies

* Composition

* Archival Studies

* Music Psychology

* Music Philosophy and Aesthetics

* German/Austrian Historical/Cultural Studies

* Screen (Music) Studies

* Disability Studies

Presentations: 20-minute Papers, 60-minute Panels, 45-minute Lecture-Recitals, 10-minute Compositions (plus 10-min presentations).

Submissions should include the following: 250-word abstract, indication of equipment required, 50-word biography, and statement of attendance (in-person/remote).

Deadline for submissions: Friday 17 March 2023, 5pm by email

The Committee will notify authors of its decision by 6 April 2023.

This conference will feature a lecture-recital by the 2022-23 Artist in Residence at the Department of Music and Media, pianist and researcher Anna Scott (Royal Conservatory of The Hague and University of Leiden). We encourage everyone to attend this conference in person, but there will be a hybrid option for those who are unable to travel.

The University of Surrey is fully committed to the principles of equality and diversity enshrined in the Race Equality Charter, the Athena SWAN Charter, the Disability Confident scheme, and through its support of LGBTQ+ communities.

Conference Committee: Angus Howie (Durham University), Anna Scott (Royal Conservatory of The Hague and University of Leiden), Erik Levi (Royal Holloway, University of London), Jeremy Barham (University of Surrey), Manuel Cini (University of Surrey).
