CIM10: second round of submissions

CIM10  Nature versus Culture, 23rd – 24th July 2010, University of Sheffield, UK


The conference on interdisciplinary musicology to be held in 2010 aims to bring together representatives of the arts and humanities, the sciences, and musical practice who are involved in research on the relationship between nature and culture in musical behaviour, thinking and sound. Session themes currently include:

  • Cognitive and physical constraints shaping musical materials and compositional practices
  • Embodied music cognition, entrainment and musical meaning
  • Biological and cultural influences on the experience of emotions with music
  • Musical universals and musical specializations
  • Evolution and biomusicology
  • Language and music
  • How culture and biology shape the phenomenal experience of musical expectation

 Submissions are encouraged that are related to these sub-areas or the general theme of nature versus culture in music.  

Keynote speakers: Prof David Huron (School of Music, Ohio State University), Dr Lauren Stewart (Department of Psychology, Goldsmiths, University of London)

The Conferences on Interdisciplinary Musicology promote collaborations between sciences and humanities, between theory and practice, as well as interdisciplinary combinations that are new, unusual, creative, or otherwise especially promising.  For this reason each submission must have at least two authors who represent different disciplines.

Deadline: 27 January 2010

E-mail submissions to: CIM10@xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
