MUSICULT ‘15: Music and Cultural Studies Conference

MUSICULT '15 Conference aims to trace the tracks of the dialectic correlation between music and culture. Artistic crops of this correlation from the very ancient roots of the communication with sound to the contemporary state are among the field of interest of the conference. During the conference and within the context of culture and identity, well-known periods and moments of the history of music in the all possible meanings, forms and genres will be brought to the agenda and new areas of interest, that will be revealed by this perspective, will be explored on the basis of the main focus point as "Local versus Universal".

Teaching is one of the most challenging professions because it brings individuals of different backgrounds (teachers and learners) into a very close relationship. The process of teaching/learning arguably constitutes the most important aspect of this relationship, but it is intimately connected with other complex personal, social, cultural, and even historical and political factors. A teacher is not a neutral entity, nor does s/he teach in a social, cultural, and historical vacuum. Similarly, the learner is not a tabula rasa, subject to the teacher's inscriptions. Inevitably, the process of education will elicit critical questions or even resistance.

We make assumptions based on bodies all the time: what bodies are
normative, strange, dangerous, fragile, familiar, foreign, and so on. The bodies we see are always-already constructed and commodified within various cultural marketplaces. Bodies function as currencies, some of which have more cultural capital than others. This cultural capital lends visibility to some bodies, while rendering others invisible.

Call for Papers/ Projects - ATHLETICISM (Deadline: 1/30/15)

The word 'athletic' derives from the Greek, athlēō ('compete for a prize'). In this schema, the 'prize' is the thing competed for, but this can be defined in many ways: as a gift, a kiss, a drop of blood, or a ribbon. We are often told that the prize is not important but participation is. The athlete models subjectivity, the body, desire, social relations, matter and chance in order to achieve a measure of success, recognition, mastery, the deferral of death and emptiness, a place in history, an apotheosis of self-love, among other things.
