CALL FOR PAPERS

Conference: INSTRUMENT OF CHANGE: THE INTERNATIONAL RISE OF THE GUITAR (C.1870-1945)
Proposals due 22 July 2016
Conference dates: 9-11 December 2016
http://goldenpages.jpehs.co.uk/2016/06/01/instrument-of-change-the-international-rise-of-the-guitar-c-1870-1945/
Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, University of Melbourne, Australia

The rise and international dissemination of the modern guitar can be dated to the decades around the turn of the 20th century, when the instrument took on a variety of forms and became associated with a range of playing styles and music genres. This conference will explore the contexts and trajectories of the guitar during this dynamic period, which pre-dated its global proliferation as a popular music icon in the second half of the 20th century.

We invite papers that investigate the guitar and its worlds (c. 1870-1945) from a number of perspectives, including:

-          The rise of classical, folk, popular and jazz traditions of the instrument
-          Studies of specific local contexts and their guitar cultures
-          The guitar as part of plucked string ensembles (estudiantinas, mandolin orchestras, the BMG movement etc) and their social or theatrical traditions
-          Studies of guitar performers and/or promoters of the instrument
-          The engagement of composers/arrangers with the guitar, and studies of repertories or particular works
-          Instrumental design, guitar manufacture and dissemination
-          Writings on the guitar and the critical reception of the instrument

We also invite papers that explore different aspects of the guitar and its contexts from this period.

The keynote speakers for the conference will be:

Prof. Walter Clark (University of California, Riverside)
Prof. Kevin Dawe (University of Kent)
Dr Melanie Plesch (University of Melbourne)
Prof. John Whiteoak (Monash University)

Please submit an abstract of not more than 250 words, with a brief biographical note,
to mchri -at- unimelb.edu.au by Friday 22 July 2016.
Selected papers will be published in a volume of refereed proceedings.

A limited number of accommodation bursaries (3 nights in college-style accommodation) will be available for presenters and conference registration is free.

Conference Convenors:
Dr Michael Christoforidis (University of Melbourne)
Dr Ken Murray (University of Melbourne)
