Music Since 1900

Deadline: 21 Dec 2021


The Twelfth Biennial International Conference on Music Since 1900 will take place at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire, 17th to 20th June 2022. At this stage, the intention is that the conference will be in-person, but with provision made for those who may be unable to travel.

The theme of the biennial conference is music since 1900 in its broadest sense, and the programming policy is to reflect music produced during the 20th and 21st centuries in all its diversity. Proposals are warmly invited on any musical genre, repertoire or discipline from the past twelve decades, including, but not limited to:

· Popular traditions
· Jazz
· Global musics
· Concert-hall repertoire
· Composition research
· Experimental and avant-garde musical practice
· Music on stage and screen
· Performance and reception studies
· Music and technology

Proposals are welcome drawing upon any scholarly approach, including interdisciplinary and cross-disciplinary perspectives. The conference will include a programme of concerts and activities featuring a diverse range of music created since 1900.

We ask that all those sending proposals give an initial indication of whether, as things currently stand, they prefer to attend in-person or online. This is not a commitment to attend in that way and will play no part in assessing the proposals. It is merely to provide an indication of preferences for planning purposes.
