2nd Symposium of the ICTM Study Group on Sound, Movement, and the Sciences (SoMoS)
The MTG and Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona co-host the 2nd Symposium of the ICTM Study Group on Sound, Movement and the Sciences (SoMoS) that will take place from 26 to 28 of October 2022 in hybrid format.
The ICTM Study Group on Sound, Movement, and the Sciences (SoMoS) aims to bring together and support scholars whose work combines methods and approaches from ethnomusicology and/or ethnochoreology with those from the sciences to explore sound and movement in musical and dance contexts. Here, the sciences are broadly defined, including but not limited to disciplines such as cognitive science, psychology, linguistics, computer science, statistics, mathematics, biology, physics, and medical science.
Call for papers
We propose that ethnographic and science-based approaches can complement each other, producing insights that might be difficult to achieve otherwise. For our second official symposium, we welcome proposals on any topic that aligns with the aims and themes of the Study Group, insofar as they combine ethnographic and science-based approaches, explore the issues involved in such endeavors, or present reflective discussions on relevant theories and methodologies. Considering that health issues are highly topical in current times, we are particularly interested in receiving contributions that explore relationships between sound, movement, emotions, and health, in a large variety of cultural contexts.
Abstracts should include a title as well as name(s) and affiliation(s) of author(s). The total abstract length should not exceed 300 words and should be submitted through the following portal: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=2somossymposium.
The deadline for the submission of abstracts is February 15th, and the notifications will be sent by April 15th.
