Call for Papers 2019

From team songs sung after a match to Arthur Honegger’s 1928 ‘Rugby’ symphonic movement; from terrace chants to Neil Hannon’s ‘Duckworth-Lewis Method’ concept album, sport and music have always been inextricably linked. Both produce moments of community, transcendence, and emotional resonance - and both are vital components of the past, present and future of modern culture.

In 2019 the ‘Fields of Vision’ sport and art network will be hosting ‘Knowing the Score’ a one day conference to bring together scholars, practitioners and the public to discuss the wide and varied links between music and sport. There will also be performances of musical works specially commissioned for the conference.

Building on the success of previous ‘Fields of Vision’ conferences, we want to attract the widest possible participation, enable new approaches, and forge new collaborations.

So we welcome proposals for papers (twenty minutes in length, no more than six slides), panel discussions (ideally featuring practitioners and scholars) or performances (no more than twenty minutes) - and we would especially welcome new and innovative approaches to presentations.

The final date for submitting proposal(s) for consideration is Thursday 28th February 2019. All proposals are to be submitted by email to Dave Turner: (d.p.turner /at/

Acceptance of papers/workshops will be confirmed by Friday 8th March 2019.

We are planning a special issue of an academic journal based around presentations at this conference. If you would be interested in turning your conference presentation into a full journal article please highlight this when submitting paper proposal.

The ‘Music and Sport - Knowing the Score’ conference will be held on Wednesday 26 June 2019 in the Lewis Jones Suite of the world-famous Headingley Stadium in Leeds from 10am to 6pm.

Conference admission delegate rates are as follows:

Full / Waged = £25.00
Student / Unwaged / OAP = £20.00

Conference passes can be purchased via Leeds Beckett University’s online store.

For the 2019 ‘Music and Sport - Knowing the Score’ conference six full bursaries are available to Leeds & district-based composers or practicing/emerging musicians. For further information about our conference bursary offering please contact conference organisers.
