Call for Papers

Extended Deadline: November 30, 2009

International Conference

Mediality of Music Cognition and Aisthesis (MeMCA)

February 19-20, 2010

University of Cologne, Cologne (Köln), Germany

The conference “Mediality of Music Cognition and Aisthesis” (MeMCA)
intends to bring together researchers interested in intradisciplinary
studies of music, media, cognition, and aesthetics and in the
convergence of the humanities, philosophy, cognitive science,
anthropology and the neurosciences. “Mediality”, a term borrowed from
media theory, serves as a generic concept to place emphasis on the
idea that media, whether technological or symbolic, are essential to
bringing about musical information, meaning, concepts, or intentions
in the processes of music cognition and aesthetic perception of music,
i.e. music aisthesis. Especially, papers are welcome that deal with
the question of how mediality might be related to situatedness,
embodiment and interaction.

Please send an abstract (300-500 words and references) and a short CV
as an rtf or pdf document no later than November 30, 2009 by email to
Jin Hyun Kim (jinhyun.kim@xxxxxxxxxxxx).

PhD candidates’ and advanced master students’ contributions are highly
recommended. For more information on students’ contributions don’t
hesitate to contact Julia Wewers (julia-wewers@xxxxxx).

Selected papers presented at the conference will be published.
