Call for Papers | Belonging and Detachment: Representing Musical Identity in Visual Culture - 19th International Conference of Association RIdIM

Conference dates: 13-15 November 2019
Call for papers deadline: 30 April 2019
Event location: Hobart, Tasmania

Musicians and artists rarely operate in complete isolation. Throughout history they have negotiated power structures and geographical circumstances, and these factors remain influential in the digital age.

The 19th International Conference of Association Répertoire International d’Iconographie Musicale (RIdIM) seeks to examine the ways in which musicians and artists experience ‘belonging’ and ‘detachment’ - be it socially, politically, geographically, artistically, aesthetically and/or philosophically. The primary concern of the conference is how such experiences impact upon the representation of musical identity in visual culture.
