29 mars 2014, Londres

This conference, to be held on Saturday March 29, 2014 at the Southbank Centre, London forms part of the Southbank's Pull Out All the Stops organ festival. It celebrates the organ music of Olivier Messiaen (1908-1992), but also his contemporaries Jehan Alain (1911-40) and Charles Tournemire (1870-1939), and Messiaen's student Jean-Louis Florentz (1947-2004).

Papers should address the technical and the aesthetic elements of this music. In particular, papers with a focus on how the religious or spiritual nature of this music is communicated to a secular world would be welcome. All papers should be focused on the dissemination of expert knowledge to the public.

Papers should be 20 minutes long (with 10 minutes for Questions and Answers). Abstracts of 200 words should be sent to Dr Robert Sholl: r.sholl at, by January 15, 2014.

Musical Boundaries: Permeations and Explorations

Call For Papers

29 mars 2014, Canada

Carleton University, Ottawa, Ontario Canada

Carleton University's Music and Culture Graduate Student Society invites proposals for their fourth annual conference, “Musical Boundaries: Permeations and Explorations,” held onMarch 29, 2014 at Carleton University in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. We are very pleased to announce that this year's keynote speaker is Dr. George Lewis from Columbia University. Dr. Lewis's research explores electronic and computer music, computer-based multimedia installations, text-sound works, and notated and improvisative forms. Dr. Lewis will be presenting his address on “Improvisation as a Way of Life: Freedom, Habitus, and the Blues.”

This colloquium aims to explore how music permeates boundaries. Possible paper subjects might explore: in what ways are concepts of boundaries useful in the signification of music and culture? How have boundaries been formed and to what extent can they influence the structural and cultural organization of musical sound? And, to what capacity can music be used to deconstruct and dissolve boundaries?

Proposals should be written in English. Interdisciplinary topics are encouraged. Examples of possible topic fields include, but are not limited to:

• Music and politics such as protest music or collective musical activism

• Issues of globalization, transnationalism, and diaspora

• Expressions of identity through musical aesthetics or syntax

• Gender and sexuality

• Technological transformations

• Relationships between music and other forms of media

• Genre and hybridizations

Those wishing to present a 20-minute academic paper (with 10 minute discussion period to follow) should submit a title and 250 word abstract in .doc, .docx, or .pdf format no later than February 24, 2014. Please include the following in the body of the email rather than the abstract, to allow for anonymous review: your name, institutional affiliation, technical requirements, and contact information.

Proposals will be reviewed by the MCGSS Selection Committee and results will be announced no later than February 28, 2014.
