      Call for Papers: The Place of Music

Centre for Research in Communication and Culture, Loughborough University
28-29 June 2017 | Co-organised by Allan Watson and Michael Hoyler


      About this event

It is almost twenty years since the publication of the landmark text
/The Place of Music/ (Leyshon et al. 1998) put the complex
relationships between music and place firmly on the research agenda.
In those twenty years, technological developments have profoundly
impacted upon musical production and consumption in ways which have
not only changed the relationships between music and place in a
geographical sense, but the place of music in society and the economy
more fundamentally. This two day conference takes this anniversary as
an opportunity to bring together musical scholars from across the
social sciences to consider and debate the place of music in 21st
Century economy and society. The conference will be based broadly,
although not exclusively, around four overlapping key themes:

 1. Music-making, musical creativity and creative labour
 2. The music industry and musical economy
 3. Music consumption
 4. Social and economic networks of musical creativity and production

      Call for papers

Our aim is to bring together researchers from diverse disciplinary
backgrounds who share common ground through their interest in music
scholarship. We therefore invite proposals for presentations from
scholars working in any discipline or area of music scholarship.

Proposals should take the form of an abstract of no more than 250
words, along with name(s) (clearly identifying the named presenter),

Decisions on proposals will be made during January 2017.

delegates (reduced for postgraduate researchers), which will include

dinner at additional cost. Travel and accommodation costs are not
