‘Music and Commemoration’

St. Patrick’s College, Drumcondra, Dublin 9, Ireland.

Keynote address by Martin Dowling, Senior Lecturer in Music at Queen's University, Belfast, and author of Traditional Music and Irish Society: Historical Perspectives (Ashgate 2014).

ICTM Ireland invites submissions on the topic of ‘Music and Commemoration’ for inclusion in the 10th Annual Conference at St. Patrick’s College, Dublin. The theme for this year's conference invites scholars to address the processes and practices of commemoration through the performance of music, song and dance. Papers that address the following topics will be especially welcome:

  • Musical Commemoration
  • Music and Memory
  • Music and Nationalism
  • Politics, Performance and the Past
  • Music, Ritual and Remembrance
  • Historical Ethnomusicology
  • Commemoration through Song and Dance
  • New Research

Conference conveners welcome submissions of 200-word abstracts from all relevant academic fields. Session presentations will be 20 minutes long. Shorter postgraduate presentations of works in progress may also be considered. ICTM Ireland aims to include an even mix of research on Irish and non-Irish case studies. Once again we particularly welcome short (10 minutes max.) video extract submissions, which will be shown between panel sessions.

Deadline for submissions is Monday, 14 December 2015.
