Call for Papers: Journal special issue following ‘Geography, Music, Space’ conference

(7 April 2017)

In January 2017, the departments of Music and Geography hosted the Geography, Music, Space one-day conference in association with the Institute of Musical Research. Following the successes of the event, the organisers are calling for abstract submissions for a collection of chapters to be published online (in collaboration with the journal Musicology Research).

To read the full call for papers and to submit an abstract, please visit Musicology Research.

The volume will echo some of the discussions raised in the conference: examining the relationship between space and how music is expressed, circulated and politicised to construct particular identities. It will also consider music at a non-representational level, with meaning emerging through affect and emotion, folded through a variety of embodied and spatially situated experiences.
