Musicological Society of Australia (MSA) Conference 2016

Musicological Society of Australia (MSA) Conference 2016: Shifts and Turns: Moving Music, Musicians and Ideas

The MSA Conference will reflect on recent changes in our environment and how we are dealing with them. The conference theme Shifts and Turns looks back into our shared heritage, outwards to the cultures of our region and forwards to our uncertain future.

The conference will consider a number of issues including: live performance, mediated and hybrid forms of music, the role of music and musicology in the community (through festivals, conferences and other events), the dissemination of music (public interface, broadcasting, music commentary and criticism), publishing and promotion, the roles of archives and music administration, issue-based policy and lobby groups, and interdisciplinary approaches to music research.
