CALL FOR PAPERS
The countries that imposed the state socialism project were in many ways ivided from the Western world by what is widely known as the ‘iron curtain’. In many respects, these countries are considered to have been totalitarian, as their ruling communist parties sought to control every aspect of their citizens’ everyday lives. However, discourses on these issues have recently become equivocal and research has drawn attention to unexplored features of cultural, artistic and musical life ‘behind the wall’. In this conference we wish to examine the musical legacies of the socialist countries of Europe in the period between the end of the World War II and the fall of the Berlin Wall. We also wish to address the possible permeability of the ‘iron curtain’ to cultural exchange and to examine related phenomena, such as the concurrent influence of socialist ideology on music in the West and the present-day political/artistic processes of reappropriation of socialist legacy. Thus, we suggest the following key issues for the conference:
We welcome original musicological and interdisciplinary research which deals with artistic, popular or traditional musical practices. The official language of the conference is English. Proposals (of no more than 400 words) for 20-minute papers and short biographical notes (of up to 200 words) should be sent both to Srđan Atanasovski (email@example.com) and Ivana Medić (firstname.lastname@example.org) by15 February 2015 (receipt of proposals will be acknowledged by e-mail). We also encourage panel proposals; please provide a short description of the session in addition to individual abstracts and biographical notes. Proposals will be reviewed by the conference committee and results will be announced by 15 March 2015. A selection of papers will be considered for publication in the form of conference proceedings. Conference fee: 50 Euros (students are exempted). The institute may be able to assist a number of foreign speakers by providing accommodation in Belgrade. This support will be available on a competitive basis and if you are interested in this option, please let us know when applying.
