Open Call: Submissions for the 7th Study Group Symposium at Lucerne School of Music

21 November 2019

The ICTM Study Group on Applied Ethnomusicology, the Lucerne School of Music, the Department of Composition, Electroacoustics, and Tonmeister Education of mdw – University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna, and the Swiss Society for Ethnomusicology invite ethnomusicologists and artistic researchers to submit papers for the 7th Study Group Symposium «Performing, Engaging, Knowing» to be held in Sursee (Lucerne, Switzerland) from 26 to 29 August 2020. 

The symposium aims to bring together ethnomusicological and artistic practices to uncover convergences and conflicts between different forms of sonic, musical, and social knowing. We hope this will offer mutual inspiration for researchers, ethnomusicologists, and artists, and that it will open doors to new kinds of interactions, new methodologies, and new forms of interventions.

  • Collaborative and diversity-sensitive production, performance, and dissemination of auditory and sound knowledge (involving social collectives and/or ethnomusicologists and/or artists)
  • Non-verbal forms of knowledge (tacit, procedural, embodied, sensual, emotional) in applied ethnomusicology and artistic research
