Canadian University Music Society Annual Conference 2018
Department of Music, MacEwan University
May 23-25, 2018
Revised Deadline: The programme committee for MusCan’s 2018 conference has extended the deadline for submission of proposals. The committee will continue to accept proposals for papers, sessions, roundtables, lecture-recitals, films, and mini-recitals, from all areas of music-academic inquiry, until 8 January 2018. Proposals may respond to this year's theme of "MusEcologies," or may contribute to the Society's longstanding tradition of representing a broad spectrum of music research at its annual conference.
Submissions to the SOCAN Foundation/George Proctor Prize competition will also be accepted until January 8.
The Canadian University Music Society (MusCan) will hold its annual conference May 23-25, 2018 at MacEwan University, Edmonton, Alberta. MacEwan University respectfully acknowledges that the land on which we gather in Treaty Six Territory is the traditional gathering place for many Indigenous Peoples. We honour and respect the history, languages, ceremonies and culture of the First Nations, Métis and Inuit who call this territory home.
Proposals from all areas of academic inquiry, including musicology, music theory, ethnomusicology, composition, music education, electro-acoustic music, music recording and production, and performance are welcome in English or French, from members and non-members. The deadline for all proposals and submissions is November 27, 2017. (Call for Scores Deadline: January 22, 2018)
The theme of the 2018 conference is MusEcologies, a theme that reflects the complexities and dynamics of music cultures in their spaces. As such, proposals oriented to aspects of this larger theme are encouraged but not required. Special topic areas may include musical communities, culture and identity, music and multiculturalism, the digital transformation and accessibility of music, etc. With its Calls for Lecture-Recitals, Mini-Concerts, Scores, Papers, Sessions, Films, and Round Tables, the CANADIAN UNIVERSITY MUSIC SOCIETY aims to bring together scholars from a wide range of perspectives for a vibrant discussion.
