[ Call for Papers | Applications ]

The Eighth International Symposium entitled Musical Culture and Memory will be held in Belgrade, Serbia, 11-14 April 2006. It is organized by the Department of Musicology and Ethnomusicology, Faculty of Music in Belgrade.
The official language of the Symposium is English.
The two issues in the title – culture and memory – are intermingled: culture is considered collective memory, designated by united geographical or linguistic space and, therefore, undoubtedly connected with tradition. In addition, we especially encourage socio-political music research, ideological approaches to the process of (re)defining cultural memory, political strategies in the conception of repertoire, or in the organization of musical life. In that context, the following wider insights are recommended:
  • defining a (multi)national musical culture
  • profiling culture: constituting mechanisms and its recognizable codes (in artistic, religious, traditional music)
  • music and its function in society
  • opera as signified/signifier of a political/cultural context
  • networking different cultures: processes of migration, acculturation
  • folk music/rites: between “frozen” memory and contemporary cultural context
  • semiotic contribution to socio-cultural research
  • (post-semiotic) cultural studies as an approach in musicological research
  • writings on music as a sign of a musical culture
  • ideology of national historiography
  • historiography as a memory of the past
  • multimedia archives, preserving music materials
  • musical memory as an aspect of the psychology of music.

Presentation of papers should be in English. Each presenter will have 20 minutes for the paper, followed by 10 minutes for discussion. Selected papers presented at the conference will be published in a volume of proceedings. Send your abstract (about 250 words) in English to Tatjana Marković [*] or Vesna Mikić [**] not later than 1 January 2006.
