[CFP] 18th Biennial IASPM Conference

Call for papers
Back to the Future: Popular Music and Time
18th Biennial IASPM Conference
29 June – 3 July 2015
Universidade Estadual de Campinas
São Paulo, Brazil

*Versão em português abaixo*
*Versión en español abajo*

Whether in relation to rhythms, eras, live performances, lyrics, identities, politics, scenes, production, or changing technologies, the topic of time can be linked to popular music in a variety of ways. The compartmentalising of sounds into genres, the ageing of audiences, and the shifting sands of the music industry all invoke notions of the temporal. For the 18th Biennial IASPM Conference, we invite researchers and practitioners to submit proposals for presentations that engage with the theme of time. We encourage proposals dealing with one of the following strands:

– Ageing Times: fandom and memory; musicians’ biographies; archiving and remastering; ageing bodies; ageing technologies; recycling repertoires.
– Historical and Social Times: contextual times; local and global histories and counter-histories; fashion, retro and revival trends; timelessness; sampling and other forms of sonic genealogies, re-circulations and surrogations.
– Modern Times: new sounds; new technologies; futurism; music industry strategies; mobile media.
– Phenomenological Times: creative process; performance deployment; gesture, affect and listening experience; cross time productions, collaborations and performances.
– Structural Times: rhythm, tempo, groove, swing, beat and the various ways of conceptualizing the duration of sound; periodicity and repetition; flow and cadence; being in/out of time and sync; relationships between noise and silence(s).

There will be the options of: panels (of 3 or 4 presenters), individual papers, film/video presentations, or poster sessions.

Panels
Proposals of organized panels are strongly recommended (two-hour long sessions with four papers, or three papers and a discussant). Each session should leave at least 30 minutes for discussion or for comments by a discussant immediately following the presentations. The panel organizer should submit the panel abstract and all individual abstracts (200 words each) in one document, with a full list of participant names and email addresses. Where an independently submitted abstract appears to fit a panel, the Academic Committee may suggest the addition of a panelist.

Papers
We invite abstracts of no longer than 200 words, including five keywords for programming purposes. Individual paper presentations are 20 minutes long to be followed by 10 minutes of discussion.

Film/video session
Recently completed films introduced by their author and discussed by conference participants may be proposed. Submit a 200-word abstract including titles, subjects, and formats, and indicate the duration of the proposed films/videos and introduction/discussion.

Poster session
A space where presenters can exhibit posters, that remain on hand for a scheduled period for discussion, will be provided. A 200-word abstract by the poster’s author, including five keywords for programming purposes, must be submitted.

Submission
Please email your abstract as a Word doc attachment to iaspm15[at]iaspm.net. Please name the file with your surname. The following format should be used:

– Name, affiliation and contact email address
– Type of presentation (select one from: panel, individual paper, film/video, poster)
– Title of presentation (and panel if applicable)
– Strand (select one from: Ageing Times / Historical and Social Times / Modern Times / Phenomenological Times / Structural Times)
– Abstract
– Five keywords
– Bio (80 words maximum)

Papers will be accepted in English, IASPM’s official language, and Portuguese and Spanish, IASPM Latin America’s official languages. For submissions in Portuguese and Spanish, an additional abstract in English is required, and, if selected, an English visual presentation is to be screened while presenting.

Questions about the organization of panels should be directed to the Chair of the Academic Committee, Goffredo Plastino: chair[at]iaspm.net. Suggestions for other possible events at the Conference should be directed to the Chair of the local Organizing Committee, Rafael dos Santos: rdsantos[at]unicamp.br

Each participant must be a member of IASPM:http://www.iaspm.net/how-to-join. Each participant may present only one paper at the Conference, but may also preside over a panel or serve as a discussant.
