Deferrals and Disciplines

Wednesday, November 26, 2014 - 8:27pm
Adam Katz

This series will address and assess the transformations in the concept of the "human" across the human sciences over the past half-century. The approach adopted is to single out two concepts that can align disparate inquiries, from the post- structuralist critiques of humanism dating back to the 1960s, to more recent studies, driven by both speculation and controlled laboratory experimentation into human cognition. These two concepts are "deferral" and "discipline." Each concept directs us toward a range of issues, intellectual and ethical, and the possible relations between the two concepts suggest further lines of inquiry.

Musical biography: National ideology, Narrative technique, and the Nature of myth, London, 9-11 April 2015

Wednesday, November 26, 2014 - 4:52pm
Institute of Musical Research, University of London, UK

While musical biography has recently received scholarly attention through an array of insightful research, the sheer breadth of possibilities for the study of biography (and biographies) in relation to music means that the broad field remains rich in untapped investigative potential. This conference will provide a forum for consolidated critical discussion on both the content of musical biography (national trends and ideologies; myths and mythology) and its form (narrative technique and meaning). It will aim to open up interdisciplinary avenues of enquiry across a wide range of subjects and time periods, in the domains of classical music, popular music, and ethnomusicology alike.
