ODC deadline extended


The deadline for proposals for ODC 2017 has been extended to December 1st.

Open for researchers, practitioners and doctoral students within music and related fields, the Orpheus Doctoral Conference 2017, Traditions-Transitions, will explore how different modes of relationships between past and present affect artistic practices today.n. Further, practitioners and researchers from the fields of music and social sciences will draw on Eric Hobsbawm’s notion of “invented traditions”, examining how traditions are forged, broken or interrupted and how they might be used as sources of renewal.

The conference will feature lectures by Richard Taruskin, Joanna Dudley, Sigiswald Kuijken and Esteban Buch as well as a musical gallery in which performances and installations addressing the conference topics will be interspersed with moderated discussions between artists and our guest speakers.

We invite researchers, practitioners, artist researchers and doctoral students within related fields to submit proposals that address the broad range of issues involved in the conference topics. Submissions should include, but are not limited to, themes that place strong emphasis on the interplay between social practices and musical performance. We welcome contributions in the form of theoretical papers, performances or a combination of the two.
