‘Groove the City’ – Urban Music Policies between Informal Networks and Institutional Governance is the 1st international conference of the Urban Music Studies Network that will be held from Nov. 23rd to 25th, 2018 at Leuphana University of Lueneburg. We would kindly like to remind you that the deadline for the conference´s call for papers is approaching and – again like to encourage the submission of paper presentations, panels and posters.

The conference issues a better understanding of structures, processes and underlying mechanisms of urban music between politics and policies, local and global influences, and economic and social interests on micro vs. macro levels. For more information have a look at the call for papers.

The keynote programme of the conference is also alreday confirmed and we are very happy to welcome three international experts on music policy and the city: Prof. Dr. Will Straw (McGill University Montreal), Prof. Dr. Susana Zapke (Music and Arts University of the City of Vienna), and Prof. Dr. Martin Cloonan (University of Turku).
