South African Society For Research in Music : Seventeenth Annual Conference

25-27 August 2023, Cape
Invitation and Call for Contributions
Centre for Humanities Research, University of the Western Cape
Deadline: 14 April 2023

The South African Society for Research in Music (SASRIM) invites contributions for its 2023 conference, hosted by the Centre for Humanities Research, University of the Western Cape. We envisage a hybrid event that will allow both in-person and online presentations. This year, the conference keynote will be delivered by Alexander Weheliye, who is the Malcom S. Forbes Professor of Modern Culture and Media at Brown University. SASRIM welcomes contributions on a wide range of topics in music research, including those that explore disciplinary intersections, and the convergences and divergences between performance and/as research.

Special interest: Sound Studies

Alongside this broad scope, this year we especially invite submissions that respond to the notion of sound and music as a problem space (Scott, 2004) of relationality and knowledge production, and how this manifests at the intersections of voice, technology, and the archive. We encourage proposals for papers, panels, round tables, or alternative formats of presentation.

All proposals will be assessed individually, without privileging particular subjects or methodologies.


The society extends a special invitation to students and early career scholars to submit proposals. Thanks to generous funding from the National Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences, the following additional opportunities are available:

*   A bursary of up to R6 000 open to master's and doctoral students from previously disadvantaged groups to participate in a "Preparing my conference paper" workshop that will be held at end of July in which participants will be mentored in the final preparation of their SASRIM paper and a broader set of skills pertinent to academic work

*   A maximum of R6 000 to attend the annual conference and present a paper.

Students from disadvantaged groups as well as all early career academics (up to five years post-PhD) may apply for funding of up to R6 000 to attend a "From paper to publication" workshop that will be held in September-October on turning your conference paper into a publication.

*   SASRIM also invites contributions for an in-person music production workshop that will coincide with the annual conference, where participants will have the opportunity to work with experienced music producers on their final product. Applicants to the workshop may apply for a bursary of maximum R6000.
