The Musicology at Kalamazoo Program Committee invites contributions for a roundtable on Medieval Music and Inclusive Pedagogy:
Interrogating Homogeny & Exclusion in the Teaching, Scholarship, and Cultural Stewardship of Medieval Musics
Organizers: Gillian Gower, Lucia Marchi, Luisa Nardini
Respondent: Catherine Adoyo
This panel invites scholars to contribute to developing a theoretical framework for interrogating the parameters of Homogeny and Exclusion in the context of medieval music.
How does “Cultural Homogeny” undergird “Cultural Hegemony”? What role do Diversity and Inclusion initiatives play in establishing and articulating culturally cosmopolitan conceptions of intellectual, cultural, and aesthetic authority in the scholarship and teaching of medieval music? Do “Diversity and Inclusion” initiatives truly challenge the “Homogeny and Exclusion” that constitute intrinsically unjust and axiomatically accepted systems of authority that they are implicitly intended to address?
Contributions should be around 10 minutes long and may address any aspect of the questions and issues raised above in the form of case studies and/or theoretical speculations.
Proposals not accepted to the Musicology at Kalamazoo session will be automatically forwarded to the ICMS for consideration for general sessions.
The deadline for submissions is September 15, 2020. Informal inquiries and questions may be sent to the session organizers at musicology.kzoo -at- gmail.com
