2019 Annual Meeting of the New Zealand Musicological Society: Musical Intersections

Deadline for proposals: 1 August 2019

Conference dates: 29 November to 1 December 2019


Venue: University of Auckland, New Zealand


As the field of musicology has expanded and developed over recent decades, the notion of intersection between musical texts, methodologies, historical periods, genres, and styles has become increasingly important. Musicologists are not content to examine only one event or text at a given time, but rather we search for new ways to explore music across a wide variety of contexts, exploring how differences come together to provide deeper explanations of our musical activities. This conference examines the various ways musicologists carry out this intersectional work in the plenitude of sites that are the focus of our explorations.

 Topics related to the conference theme might include:

 -Interdisciplinarity: What happens when musicology combines with creative practices like performance and composition? With pedagogical methodologies? With the STEM subjects? With dance and the visual arts?

 -Intersectionality: How can musicology contribute to discourse around the intersections within society of gender, race, sexuality, and class?

 -Intertextuality: How do musical texts communicate with each other? How do musical and non-musical texts communicate with each other?

 -Internationalism: How does music tie nations together, or separate them? How is music used in cultural diplomacy?

 Abstracts for 20-minute papers will be considered on all aspects of music studies (not limited to the conference theme), including music history, music theory and analysis, ethnomusicology, composition, performance, popular music studies, sound studies, and music education.
