CALL FOR PAPERS

The Institute for Analysis, Theory and History of Music (University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna), in cooperation with the Music and Media Study Group (MaM) of the International Musicological Society, will hold an international conference from 25-28 November, 2015 in Vienna on the topic of

War of Media – Media of War:
The Importance of Music and Media for Propaganda in
Times of Change

With respect to the “outbreak” of World War I exhibitions in the wake of commemorative activities, as well as to related research projects, this conference will focus on the diverse roles and functions of arts and media in the contexts of propaganda, both in affirmative and in a critical sense. Following those kinds of approach, the aim of the conference is to encourage a general discussion of the manifold correlations and interdependencies in times of war and revolution.

Topics for case studies may cover all historical periods and all places, with priority given to the effects of modern mass media (print and electronic). Participants may wish to reflect upon war in terms of the arts and in different types of media, war-euphoria and pacifism relating to conceptions of artistic production, and images and social positions of arts and media dealing with war-issues or the relation between ideologies of progress and/or innovation in the context of socio-political systems upturned.

Please submit proposals together with short abstracts (max 300 words) and short cvs (max. one page) by
26 March, 2015 to Cornelia Szabó-Knotik, szabo-knotikATmdw.ac.at, or to
Professor Emile Wennekes, University of Utrecht,ewennekesATUU.nl
