*REEM Annual Conference 2017*
*Music and Revolution*
*Goldsmiths, University of London*
On the occasion of the centenary of the Russian revolution, the BASEES
Study Group for Russian and Eastern European Music invites proposals for
its 2017 conference, to be held at Goldsmiths, University of London, on
Friday 15th December. The theme of the conference is ‘Music and
Revolution’, and we welcome proposals that deal with a broad range of
revolutionary moments in Russia and Central and Eastern Europe: from
Decembrists to Bolshevists, from Springs to Singing Revolutions and the
collapse of communism.
Possible topics include, but need not be limited to:
- Music at the time of and in response to revolution
- Protest music and revolutionary song
- Sounds and soundscapes of revolution
- Musical change and continuity post-revolution
- Politicisation of music
- Emigration, exile and changing musical landscapes
The conference’s official language is English.
Abstracts of no more than 400 words and short biographical notes (c.200
words) should be sent to reemstudygroup -at- gmail.com by 1st May 2017.
Abstracts will be reviewed and the results announced by mid-June.
REEM has a modest amount of money available to assist speakers, especially
postgraduates and those without access to other funds, with the costs of
attending. If you would like to be considered for such funding, which is
likely to cover only an element of your travel and/or accommodation, please
indicate this in your proposal.
Convenors: Tamsin Alexander, Philip Bullock, Pauline Fairclough,
Ivana Medić, Danijela Špirić-Beard and Patrick Zuk.
Any enquiries should be sent to reemstudygroup -at- gmail.com
