Presentation: After recognition of the Study Group by the Executive Board in July 2015, this first symposium aims to provide a scholarly venue to reflect widely on the use of audiovisual media as a tool of research, communication, preservation and sustainability in ethnomusicology. The symposium will gather international scholars interested in the multifarious implications of the topic. The themes are chosen to prompt a broad discussion of theoretical and methodological issues, to focus on the more specific topic of the role of audiovisual archives, and to allow for participants to present outcomes of their current research.
We welcome paper proposals in relation to the following topics:
The duration of presentations should be 20 minutes, allowing 10 more minutes for discussion. The use of audiovisual materials is encouraged in every presentation.
The Symposium will be integrated into the yearly festival Nights in the Old Ljubljana Town, so that symposium participants will have the opportunity to screen their films to the general public.
Deadlines: Participants should send a title and an abstract of their papers (up to 300 words) to Matias Isolabella email@example.com by 31 December, 2015. Selected papers will be announced by 15 March, 2016.
