*Musicology Today: Annual Plenary Conference of the SMI *

*28–30 June 2019, Maynooth University, Deadline: 3 March 2019*

Keynote speaker: Professor Michael Beckerman (Carroll And Milton Petrie
Professor of Music, New York University)

Notwithstanding its relatively young age, musicology has experienced many
subject specialisations: for instance, a broad range of music-historical
approaches; compositional aesthetics; matters of musical performance (both
classical and traditional); iconography; music theory and analysis;
organology; palaeography; relationships between music, text, and/or imagery
of various kinds; intersections between music, socio-politics, gender,
ethnicity, and religion; and aspects of technology including evolving
digital cultures. Despite (or because of) these developments musicology
continues to ignite discussions within academia and among the general
public. As an academic discipline, musicology borrows from and adds to such
other disciplines as anthropology, archaeology, architecture, computer
science, cultural studies, fine arts, history, literary studies, media
studies, philosophy, physics, psychology, and sociology. In the public
domain, musicological considerations can be a powerful tool to illuminate
cultural heritage both regionally and internationally, to address and
resolve socio-cultural issues, and to enhance the mental well-being of
individuals and whole communities.

The programme committee invites proposals for contributions on any aspect
of musicology. Accepted formats include but are not limited to:

-          20-minute papers;

-          90-minute panels comprising up to four contributions;

-          30- or 60-minute lecture recitals; and

-          posters (no smaller than A3).

Please send your proposals to *smiconference2019 -at-
<> *by 3 March 2019. Please include: an abstract of no more
than 250 words in a word-compatible format, a biographical note of no more
than 150 words, contact details including academic affiliation, if
applicable, and any technological requirements.

The programme committee includes Dr Anja Bunzel (Chair, Maynooth
University), Dr Patrick Devine (Independent), Dr Darina McCarthy (Maynooth
University), Dr John O’Flynn (Dublin City University), and Dr Adrian
Scahill (Maynooth University).
