Jewish Music and Jewish Identity
19-21 octobre 2014, Youngstown State University
Call for Papers
Deadline for submissions: March 1, 2014
This conference seeks to engage scholars of Jewish studies, ethnomusicology, musicology, and the humanities in a discussion about the intersection of Jewish identity and music. In addition to academic presentations, the two-day meeting will include public concerts and lectures.
Music is an important component of Jewish culture. It mirrors and shapes the diverse modes of Jewish identity found throughout the world and across history. Music is ever present yet often remains an intangible sibling of the literary and visual arts. The aim of this conference is to bridge the gaps between Jewish studies, music research, and the humanities.
We invite submissions for individual papers, panels, and lecture recitals. Submissions for individual papers should consist of a 250-word abstract, contact information, short bio of the speaker, and any a/v equipment needs. Proposals for a panel should include a 100-word description of the overall panel in addition to a 250-word abstract of each paper on the panel as well as contact information and a short bio of each speaker. The conference may include one or more lecture recitals. To propose a lecture recital, please submit a 250-word abstract of your topic, short bio, recording with excerpts of the music you will perform, and any equipment/instrumental needs (e.g., piano, amplification, etc.).
A special issue of the Journal of Jewish Identities will be created out of papers from the conference.
Proposals should be sent electronically or mailed to:

Gérard Grisey, the spectral moment, and its legacy
Call for papers
19-21 octobre 2016 Montréal
A bilingual colloquium and concerts co-hosted by McGill University, Université de Montréal, CIRMMT, and OICRM, October 19-21, 2014, Montreal http://www.music.mcgill.ca/grisey2014/
The premature death of French composer Gérard Grisey (1946-98) cut short one of the most productive and creative musical careers of the twentieth century. Starting in the 1970s, Grisey and other musicians associated with l'Itinéraire developed a radically new musical approach that took the physical characteristics of sounds (their acoustic spectra) as a source of inspiration.
This event features an international colloquium and three concerts dedicated to exploring the contemporary legacy of Grisey's music and compositional thought. The colloquium will take place over three days (19-21 October 2014), with presentations at both the Schulich School of Music of McGill University and the Faculté de Musique of the Université de Montréal. Invited speakers include scholars from the fields of composition (Jean-Luc Hervé, Philippe Hurel, Philippe Leroux), musicology (François-Xavier Féron, Bob Gilmore, Jonathan Goldman, Robert Hasegawa), and music psychology (Stephen McAdams).
Proposals are invited for talks on any topic related to Grisey's music, spectralism or its legacy. Proposals should be no longer than 350 words, with up to two pages of supplementary material (bibliography, musical examples, figures, etc.). Each presenter will be allotted a 45-minute period.
Anonymous proposals should be sent in PDF format attached to an email containing contact information (author's name, institutional affiliation, postal address, email address, and telephone number) by 15 June 2014 to Robert Hasegawa (robert.hasegawa at mcgill.ca)
