Wednesday 25 January 2017
How does music shape diverse spaces, such as an immigration detention centre, a street performance, a military wives' choir, or a family kitchen? Is there common ground to be found between researching the chants of a protest marcher, the beats of a commuter's headphones and a soloist's concert hall recital? What is the role of music in the construction of space, and vice versa? How and why do we research this?
This one-day conference will explore the relationship between space and how music is expressed, circulated and politicised to construct particular identities. It will also examine music at a non-representational level, with meaning emerging through affect and emotion, folded through a variety of embodied and spatially situated experiences. In short, it will consider the nuanced interplay between music and space.
The conference aims to bring together scholars working at the intersection of music and space, not only within the areas of ethnomusicology, musicology and geography, but also as approached from a variety of other disciplinary backgrounds (including politics, sociology, anthropology, philosophy). We especially encourage contributions from Postgraduates and Early Career Researchers.
The event is free and all are welcome. Please register to attend by Friday 16th December, 2016.

APEX - Arctic Palaeoclimate and its Extremes is a network research programme aiming to understand Arctic climatic changes beyond instrumental records. Our particular emphasis is to focus on the magnitude/frequency of the climate variability and, in particular, the "extremes" versus the “normal” conditions of the climate system. It is an interdisciplinary programme that integrates marine and terrestrial science and utilizes modelling and field observations. APEX involves scientists from 15 European countries, Canada and USA and is one of the coordinating programmes for palaeoclimate research during the International Polar Year (IPY) 2007/2008.
