Call for Papers: Documenting Jazz 2020,
16–18 January 2020, Birmingham City University.
Keynote speakers:
Professor Catherine Tackley (University of Liverpool)
Associate Professor Kristin McGee (University of Groningen)

Birmingham City University is pleased to announce the Call for Papers for
the Documenting Jazz conference, being held on 16–18 January 2020. Now in
its second year, Documenting Jazz brings together colleagues from across
the academic, archive, library, and museum sectors to explore and discuss
documenting jazz.

In Ways of Seeing, John Berger argues that though every image embodies a
way of seeing–every photograph is the photographer’s selection from an
infinite number of other sights–so too our perception of an image changes
with our personal way of seeing. The act of documenting jazz embodies ways
of documenting that reflect assumptions of the past. As changes in
technology, cultures and economies have profoundly influenced and affected
our perception of music, alternative ways of documenting jazz must be
considered, explored, and discussed. Documenting Jazz 2020 invites
proposals on this year’s theme of ways of documenting jazz, either as
individual or collaborative projects. The programme committee welcomes
submissions focusing on ways of documenting jazz as visual culture, and its
distinct representations: photography, press, cinema, television, and web.
We also invite proposals that address ways of documenting that challenge
the traditional narratives surrounding jazz as a male-dominated domain.
This year’s conference also aims to consolidate discussions around issues
of gender, and the way those have been documented or marginalised in this
music history. While not restricted to these themes, we invite submissions
that address critical ways of documenting jazz around the following areas:

• Jazz in Photography
• Jazz in the Press
• Jazz on/in Cinema
• Jazz on/in Television
• Jazz online

Proposals are invited as individual papers, joint papers, proposals for
themed panels and round-table discussions. Further information regarding
submitting proposals can be found at https://urldefense.proofpoint.com/v2/url?u=http-3A__www.documentingjazz.com&d=DwIFaQ&c=Cu5g146wZdoqVuKpTNsYHeFX_rg6kWhlkLF8Eft-wwo&r=PHu0YcldevQqIedM86l0iexbqE-AeZLl-lupNToNx6I&m=PM_FKzi-XyPW9k6ZPvzwSGLEcFKlzflRs4FDH8GHSpY&s=eZ99JABxr7EZKHkkd1-ETqvSBy082lxQfUKYNLVdt7s&e=
