The Philosophy of Performance :
Art in Modern Society

Call for Abstracts

Deadline for Abstract Submissions
March 1, 2012

Keynote Speakers
Musicology: Richard Taruskin, University of California, Berkeley
Philosophy: Peter Kivy, Rutgers University
Performance: Mark Beudert, University of Notre Dame

Within living memory, classical music was viewed as a vital source of political identity, marked by informed performances embodying a living style. These performances were presented to audiences that (in the words of the film philosopher Christian Metz) shared "the same ideology" as composers and performers, thus "filling the [auditoriums]; that is how the machine keeps turning." This "machine" was recognized as being of measurable economic benefit for the community. Today it is viewed as a luxury to be discarded in periods of economic adversity, depriving the community of the richness art brings to our daily spiritual communal lives.

Over the past six years, the position of performance of opera (the most inclusive and expensive of the arts) has flourished on the Notre Dame campus. This is due to the animating philosophy behind Opera Notre Dame: the study of performance is an ideal subject for a liberal arts campus, the microcosm of society. The study at Notre Dame not only focuses on the conservatory-level "how" of performance. It engages as well the "what" and the "why" of performance, the definition of the act and the examination of its purpose in our common life.

This sort of study of performance of classical music is rare. To foster this study, this conference will bring an international group of distinguished scholars and practitioners in musicology, philosophy, and performance to a campus full of students already engaged in comprehensive study. They will assemble for a groundbreaking gathering devoted to the study of art in our culture through an academic investigation of issues surrounding the artistic, economic, political, and spiritual act of performance.

Music : Parts and Labor

The First Annual Graduate Student Conference, Department of Music, New York University, April 27th - 28th, 2012, NYU Silver Center, Department of Music

Music : Parts and Labor is an integrative, interdisciplinary graduate student conference that allows professors (faculty from both NYU and other universities in the New York area) and graduate students to collaboratively explore the issues of music, its parts and labor, by working closely in seminars, panels, and a roundtable.

The constitution of a musical work is a topic of much historical debate in musicological, philosophical, and legal discourses. Music: Parts and Labor aims to interrogate what is at stake in challengingor maintaining certain conceptualizations of the musical work by dismantling it, examining the parts (e.g. intellectual, material) and labor (e.g. intellectual, material) constitutive of its being. We ask how thinking through the labor of the musical work itself, as a part of larger corporeal, cultural, and economic systems provides unique insight into these often intertwined networks and, in turn, music's efficacy and functionality.

We are pleased to welcome Elisabeth LeGuin (UCLA) as the keynote speaker, as well as Aaron Fox (Columbia), Taoufik Ben-Amor(Columbia), José Esteban Muñoz (NYU), Anne Stone (CUNY), and Maureen Mahon (NYU) on a faculty roundtable, and Suzanne G. Cusick (NYU) and J. Martin Daughtry (NYU) as breakfast seminar leaders.

Refreshments, workshops, and special panels will also be featured. Please join us!

All the best,

The Music: Parts and Labor Organizing Committee
