Symposium themes:

The ICTMD Study Group on Sound, Movement and the Sciences (SoMoS) aims to bring together scholars whose work combines approaches from ethnomusicology and/or ethnochoreology with those from the sciences to explore sound and movement in music and dance contexts. Here, the sciences are broadly defined, including but not limited to disciplines such as cognitive science, psychology, linguistics, computer science, statistics, mathematics, biology, physics, and medical science.

We propose that ethnographic/anthropological and science-based approaches can complement each other, producing insights that might be difficult to otherwise achieve. For our third official symposium, we welcome proposals on any topic that aligns with the aims and themes of the Study Group, insofar as they combine ethnographic/anthropological and science-based approaches, explore issues involved in such endeavors or present reflective discussions on relevant theories and methodologies.

Keynote speaker: Professor Anne Danielsen (University of Oslo)

Abstract deadline and submission

The deadline for submission of abstracts is 15 February 2024.
