Conferences & Calls
2nd Biennial Disability Studies and Music Education Symposium
The planning committee of the 2nd Biennial Disability Studies and Music Education Symposium are excited to share a call for session proposals. You can access the call and application survey here: https://bit.ly/DSandME2020

Symposium Theme: Intersectionality of Disabled Persons/Persons with Disabilities' Experiences In, With, Through, and Around Music

Tom Shakespeare (2014) critiqued disability theorization for its lack of centering the lived experiences of disabled persons. Originating from experiences and scholarship of Black women (Crenshaw, 1995), intersectionality recognizes the deep intersections of multiple identity points. This conference provides an opportunity to center experiences of disabled persons while embracing the complexity and importance of intersectionality.

In the second Disability Studies and Music Education Symposium, we, following Shakespeare’s perspective, echoed through Lubet’s (2011) notion of disability as a constantly shifting social confluence, will inspect the intersectional nature of the experiences of disabled persons in, through, and around music learning. Regarding intersectionality and disability, Goethals, De Schauwer, and Van Hove (2017) note that: "People with disabilities are frequently assumed to share the same views, experiences, and priorities, regardless of gender, age, cultural background, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, religion, and other categories of difference. Consequently, primacy is given to ‘disability’ over other key elements, meaning that the interactions among all determinants are often neglected. Thus, the questions remain whether all people with a disability benefit, and which persons with a disability tend to be excluded from current research projects" (p. 228). Collins and Bilge (2016) share that “intersectionality recognizes and retains complexity and nuance, both within and among multiple injustices, as an analytic tool that sheds light on the complexity of people's lives within an equally complex social context” (p. 25).

The planning committee for Disability Studies and Music Education Symposium welcomes proposals of various styles and formats to inspect the intersectionality of experiences of disabled persons in, through, and around music. The committee specifically seeks works that focus on the lived experiences of disabled musicians/musicians with disabilities examined through disability studies and adjacent frameworks, rather than special education-centric explorations of inclusive practices and policies. Embracing an overall ethic of accommodation (i.e., Galloway, Nudd, & Sandahl, 2007), we encourage presenters to construct sessions that meet their interests, experiences, and needs.

Working in Music and the Covid-19 Pandemic
Following the excellent response to our first call for think pieces about the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on musical work and research, we encourage scholars studying musical work to continue submitting short pieces for the Working in Music Blog. The goal is to continue the conversation about these topics and pool our resources together. Although eight months have passed since the Covid-19 outbreak was announced as a pandemic by the World Health Organization in March 2020, data is still scarce.

Being an international network, we are particularly interested in gathering insights into different national contexts. Topics are open, but we encourage submissions about the following:

1. The ongoing impact of the pandemic on musical workers

The pandemic has impacted all types of musical workers. Lockdown policies, closure of venues, and cancellation of live music events are creating unprecedented challenges for musical workers, including harming their jobs, mental health and economic situations, among other issues. How are musical workers adapting to these new circumstances? How are they coping with these new challenges? What projections do they have for their future? How are different countries and governments dealing with the crisis in the cultural sector?

We call for pieces that reflect on some of these issues, including all types of musical workers, such as music teachers, tech crews, performers, composers, singer-songwriters, managers, and even music scholars. Considering the worldwide scale of the current crisis, we encourage insights from different geographical contexts.

2. Researching musical work while in lockdown

How does research continue while in confinement? How can fieldwork and observations be replaced? Can all interviews be conducted online and with what effect? Are all archives and libraries accessible online? How do/can researchers adapt to the new working conditions? Is scholarship adapting to these new circumstances? Are new methodologies developing?

We call for pieces that critically reflect on some of these issues, considering different geographical contexts and academic status. Share your tips, experiences and digital resources on researching musical work during the lockdown.

3. Women in Music

We encourage pieces focused on gender inequality issues during the health emergency. We invite relevant pieces related to the above topics and also short interviews for our series Women in Music during Covid-19 (for guidance see this post and this other one). Feel free to use similar questions to those in the published posts or develop new ones. The aim is to hear the voices of women whose jobs and everyday lives have been seriously impacted by the pandemic and have not always had the time and space to make their voices heard.

* * *

Pieces must be between 250-750 words and can be written in either English, French or Spanish. Please include a brief bio or institutional description. Feel free to send a picture or video to include in your post, but be sure you are authorised to use it (all photos must be credited).

You can send your piece (in Word format) to Gabrielle Kielich (gabrielle.kielich[at]mail.mcgill.ca).

We will collect and review the entries, communicate with authors about edits when necessary, and publish them on our website every two weeks until early March 2021.

We publicise all published posts on our Twitter account (@working_music) and our mailing list (subscribe here).

Big Sounds from Small Places
International Association for the Study of Popular Music (IASPM) Canada Annual Conference 2021
Virtual Conference
7 – 18 June 2021

Submission Deadline: 15 January 2021
As we enter into a new decade it’s apt to question our place in the world. Almost sixty years ago, Marshall McLuhan notably coined the term Global Village to refer to the global spread of media content and consumption, and yet Canada still struggles with its position in the world as an imposing landmass with a relatively small population, and how that influences where and how its cultural texts are encountered. This conference seeks to address the concept of voice and sound as tied to space and place, in the broadest sense. In regards to popular music in Canada, we have established a strong identity, but one that is often defined in opposition to our more vocal neighbours to the South. As we continuously define and redefine Canadian cultural identity, and cultural outputs, this conference questions how our musical landscape has historically adapted, and will continue to adapt, to an increasingly globalized environment.

While we welcome papers on any aspects of popular music, we encourage papers that align with the conference subthemes: audiences; space & place; and populations & peripheries.

Audiences:
The digital landscape has dramatically extended the reach of niche music, local musicians, and subcultures/scenes. Potential areas of focus in this theme include, but are not limited to:
●     Scenes: from “small town” roots to urban niches. The history, present, and future of local scenes.
●     Digital communities/fans: the spread of Canadian pop through digitality.
●     Subcultures: issues of subcultural identity in popular music
●     Everyday uses of music
●     Listening practices: environmental impacts; listening to music in transit
●     Dance and embodied consumption
 
Space & Place:
Canada, as a Nation and a concept, continues to exist as both “village/settlement” and a major player on the global stage. The ways in which popular music also navigates these complicated relationships is often intimately tied how space and place is expressed in music. This can be seen not only in Canadian music, but also throughout a myriad of cultural and national identities. Potential areas of focus in this theme include, but are not limited to:
●     Issues of space and place in popular music
●     Land-based epistemologies and musical embodiment; the natural environment and music spaces
●     “Small” nations/artists/communities on the global stage
●     Live music and venues: small/hidden/underground venues; “noise” and leaking sounds; busking; rehearsal spaces
●     Music-making practices in domestic spaces
 
Populations & Peripheries:
How does/can music become the sound of a community? This theme explores the connection between cultural identity, community, and music. In addition, it takes up the notion of peripheries to focus on the marginalized, subaltern, and/or tokenized sounds/identities, and to disrupt hegemonic paradigms. Potential areas of focus in this theme include, but are not limited to:
●     Music and cultural, community, and/or national identity
●     “Small” economies in smaller populations
●     Issues of music policy and practice
●     Making music in jail
●     The sounds of Indigenous, Immigrant, Disabled, LGBTQ, and/or Ally communities
 
Submission Guidelines:
Abstracts of individual papers, workshops, performances and other presentations should be no longer than 300 words. The program committee is especially interested in proposals in diverse formats. Panel submissions should include a title and abstract for the panel (300 words max.) as well as titles and abstracts for the individual papers on the panel. All abstracts for a panel should be submitted together. Abstracts will be adjudicated individually, so it is possible for a panel to be accepted but not an individual paper and vice versa. Each abstract should also include a short biography of the author (100 words max.) including the institutional affiliation, if any, and email address of each author. Each abstract should also include five keywords. Submissions in French and English are acceptable. All submissions must be submitted as a single Word document with the author's last name as the document file name. Please do not submit your proposal as a PDF. Proposals will be blind reviewed.

Submit abstracts in this google form: https://forms.gle/oURw2x7avFSbvb966
 
Presentation Logistics:
Papers will be limited to 20 minutes followed by 10 minutes of questions. Panels will be limited to a maximum of 4 papers. Other presentations (workshops, film screenings, roundtables, etc.) will generally be limited to 60 minutes, but alternatives can be discussed/proposed. All participants must be members of IASPM-Canada at the time of the conference. Membership information is available on the following website: http://iaspm.ca/membership.
 
For questions about the conference, please contact the Program Committee Chair, Melissa Avdeeff (iaspmcanada2021@gmail.com), or Local Organizing Chair, Chris McDonald (chris_mcdonald@cbu.c).
