AAWM 2024 CALL FOR PAPERSEighth International Conference onAnalytical Approaches to World Musics (AAWM 2024)June 10–14, 2024University of Bologna, ItalyThe year 2024 marks the eighth instalment of the AAWM International Biennial Conference series. Exploration of the rich musical heritage of the world continues to receive increasing attention from a broad array of theoretical, cultural, historical, psychological, empirical, informatics, and analytical perspectives. Analytical Approaches to World Musics 2024 brings together scholars to explore the panoply of global musical traditions, both past and present, that lie outside the purview of European Art Music in order to foster interdisciplinary and cross-cultural dialogue and promote new approaches and methods. In place of the traditional keynote lectures, the meeting will include a number of special panel sessions and roundtables, provisionally titled:● Re(Defining) Music Analysis● Pedagogy for Analysis of World Musics● Innovative Approaches to Notation● Analytical Perspectives on Italian Traditional Music Practices● Carang Pring Wulung: Analyzing Calung Music from Banyumas (CentralJava) through the Filmic Medium (film screening and conversation withdirector Daniele Zappatore)AAWM 2024 welcomes submissions that examine the world’s musical traditions from any analytical or theoretical angle, including (but not limited to) ethnographic, historical, formal, computational, and cognitive perspectives. Submission formats include papers, posters, special sessions, lecture-recitals, and workshops. To maximize access and a affordability, AAWM 2024 will be held as a hybrid event with options for both onsite and remote participation.Graduate students and scholars within five years of receiving the PhD will be considered for the Rob Schultz Junior Scholar Award, established in 2016 to honor the memory of the co-founder of the Analytical Approaches to World Music journal and conference series. The best paper presented by a junior scholar will be published in the journal, and the author will also receive a modest cash award.Please see below for information on conference organization and submission guidelines for AAWM 2024.Conference website: Will be linked from the AAWM Conferences webpagehttps://emea01.safelinks.protection.outlook.com/?url=https%3A%2F%2Fconferences.iftawm.org%2F&data=05%7C01%7C%7C1ca1b6104a0a4fe6d72408dbcf23819b%7C84df9e7fe9f640afb435aaaaaaaaaaaa%7C1%7C0%7C638331523626937517%7CUnknown%7CTWFpbGZsb3d8eyJWIjoiMC4wLjAwMDAiLCJQIjoiV2luMzIiLCJBTiI6Ik1haWwiLCJXVCI6Mn0%3D%7C3000%7C%7C%7C&sdata=jl0Y8K70bsymtzIL5B%2BbIeZKpROeim%2FasLemwOO8sLA%3D&reserved=0 by mid-October 2023.Program Committee Co-ChairsAndrew Killick (University of Sheeld, UK)[Second co-chair TBC]Organizing CommitteeLawrence Shuster (Cornell University, USA)Eshantha Peiris (Vancouver Community College, Canada)James Morford (University of Washington, USA)Jane Piper Clendinning (Florida State University, USA)Local Arrangements CommitteeLorenzo Chiarofonte (University of Bologna, Italy)Nicola Renzi (University of Bologna, Italy)Submission GuidelinesPapers: Proposals for spoken papers should include a short abstract of no more than 350 words, including any footnotes but not counting the title and bibliography.
