CfP: Mapping the Musical City – a Historically Savvy Symposium

This symposium, in association with the School of Advanced Studies, addresses mapping as both an object and method of musicological enquiry. Inspired in part by the “spatial turn” in the humanities at large and fuelled by the increasing accessibility of Geographic Information Systems software, musicologists can now visualize and analyse complicated trends across time and place with greater ease than ever before. Yet, the ideological and epistemological implications of different mapping tools and techniques remain underexplored. The aim of this symposium is to situate recent projects within a longer history of cartographic practice in music studies.

Please note the quick turnaround for this call: the deadline for proposals is Wednesday 13 December 2017, 12.00 GMT and decisions will be made later that week.
