Kia ora ADA whānau,
another upcoming opportunity to share creative research in
Pōneke/Wellington end of this month:
*Tuning in the Pandemic - A Conference on the State of Music Research in
*November 26th and 27th – Massey University and Victoria University of
2020 has had immeasurable impacts on the global music industry. On our own
doorstep in Aotearoa, festivals have been cancelled, tours postponed,
innumerable gigs called off, and local venues and galleries have reopened
with fears over their ability to survive in both the long and short term.
This precariousness is echoed in universities, where researchers reframe
and renegotiate their means of engaging with and analysing the political
economy of music and music-making.
In this two day conference, co-hosted by Massey University and Victoria
University of Wellington, we seek to showcase a wide-reaching cross-section
of current research in music and sound studies, cultures, education, and
music-related practices in Aotearoa. We invite proposals from all
disciplines and fields--from thinkers, makers, producers, and
performers--to emphasise the plurality and diversity of music and sound
research in Aotearoa.
This conference is thus a chance to gather and reconnect after a tumultuous
year, and to collaboratively engage with the state of play of music
research in Aotearoa. As universities and music sectors alike look to the
future, we join as institutions to take stock of the historical and present
conditions for music research in and on Aotearoa, and map where the role of
such research lies beyond 2020.
Please send proposals of 200 words, plus a title, and contact details to
aotearoamusic2020(a)massey.ac.nz by *November 6th, 2020*. If you require
confirmation at an earlier date to meet funding requirements, please let us
