International Council for Traditional Music

A Non-Governmental Organization in Formal Consultative Relations with UNESCO

PRELIMINARY PROGRAM of the ICTM Joint Symposium - Vienna 2018

ICTM Joint Symposium of the Study Group on Music and Minorities
and the Study Group on Music and Gender

22 July-31 July 2018, University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna

Two Study Groups will hold a joint symposium for the

fourth time in the history of ICTM, in Vienna next July.

Minorities and Gender are joining forces because of many

overlapping approaches in their respective fields of research.

To avoid parallel sessions, it will be an 8-day-long

conference, including social events and an excursion. About

70 presenters from four continents will exchange their ideas

on topics of socio-political relevance. The conference will

start with Minority themes, then feature two days of shared

topics, followed by Gender-related issues. Due to the

generosity of the hosting institution, there will not be any

registration fees.
