ROYAL NORTHERN COLLEGE OF MUSIC, MANCHESTER UK
2 - 3 FEBRUARY 2010
CONFERENCE ANNOUNCEMENT AND CALL FOR PAPERS
Professor Tia DeNora (University of Exeter, UK)
Professor Raymond MacDonald (Glasgow Caledonian University, UK)
This international conference focuses on the construction of musical identities through spoken interaction. Empirical and theoretical research on music and identity construction, using a variety of qualitative methods, will be considered. In addition, methodological papers that discuss the collection and analysis of talk in a variety of musical contexts are welcome (e.g., interview, focus group, and naturally occurring data, and thematic analysis, grounded theory, discourse analysis, interpretative phenomenological analysis, conversation analysis etc.).
Papers reporting empirical research should present unpublished data from recent studies; abstracts reporting incomplete studies may be submitted provided analyses are complete by the time they are presented at the conference itself. Oral and poster presentations will be considered. Each oral presentation will last 25 minutes (not including questions).
Abstracts of 200-300 words should be sent to Antonia Ivaldi
