Dear colleagues,

We welcome submissions to the Centennial Conference of the Société
française de musicologie: “Thinking musicology today: objects, methods, and
prospects” (Paris, 23-25 November 2017).

On the occasion of the centenary of its foundation in 1917, the Société
française de musicologie <> organizes a
conference with the purpose of investigating the nature and the definition
of the field. The aim is to assess its literature and orientations over the
last hundred years, but mostly to consider its potential of renewal by way
of opening up new prospects for research in different methods and objects
of study: acoustic, analysis, aesthetics, ethnomusicology, genre studies,
postcolonial studies, cultural history, music history, iconography, sound
and music computing, organology, performance studies, sociomusicology,
theory, etc.

*In line with the previous conferences held by the SFM, we shall pay
particular attention to young academics, PhD candidates, and postdoctoral
