Call for papers

It is almost twenty years since the publication of the landmark text ‘The Place of Music’ (Leyshon et al. 1998) put the complex relationships between music and place firmly on the research agenda. In those twenty years, technological developments have profoundly impacted upon musical production and consumption in ways which have not only changed the relationships between music and place in a geographical sense, but the place of music in society and the economy more fundamentally.
Our aim is to bring together researchers from diverse disciplinary backgrounds who share common ground through their interest in music scholarship. We therefore invite proposals for presentations from scholars working in any discipline or area of music scholarship.
