I am happy to announce that registration is now open for the conference Responses in Music to Climate Change, produced under the auspices of The Barry S. Brook Center for Music Research and Documentation in New York City.
Our event collects and shares research on music’s place within the Anthropocene from a wide range of perspectives. Originally scheduled for April of 2020, this conference has been reimagined as a five-day virtual gathering, taking place on 4-8 October 2021.
