The Music Department at the University of Otago announces an international
conference in New Zealand

RE-THINKING MUSIC IN ART:
NEW DIRECTIONS IN
MUSIC ICONOGRAPHY

MUSIC DEPARTMENT, UNIVERSITY OF OTAGO, NEW ZEALAND 26 – 28 JUNE 2008

This conference aims to draw together scholars from a variety of
disciplines who share an interest in the way music and musicians are
represented in the visual arts. The conference will provide a forum for
wide-ranging discussions on future directions, opportunities and challenges
for research in music iconography.

Keynote speakers:

Professor Richard Leppert, (Department of Cultural Studies & Comparative
Literature, University of Minnesota), speaking on "Acoustic Culture/Visual
Culture (Music, Time, and the Self)"

Dr Antonio Baldassarre (President of the Commission Mixte of the Répertoire
International d'Iconographie Musicale), speaking on "The place of music
iconography in institutions of higher education"

We welcome papers from scholars whose research takes them into the
intersection between music and the visual. The conference is especially
concerned with issues of methodology, new or under-utilised subject matter,
and the relationship between music iconography and other fields of
musicology. Some specific topics include:

â—Š Methodology in music iconography: the varieties of approach to music in art
â—Š Interdisciplinarity and music iconography: strengths and weaknesses
â—Š Music in art in the Asia-Pacific region, especially indigeneity and
identity in music imagery
â—Š Popular music and imagery, such as record covers
â—Š Music iconography and performance practice: authenticity and imagery in
the postmodern paradigm
â—Š Portraiture of musicians: portraits as cultural history, and approaches
to researching.

Free papers are also most welcome.

Paper abstracts, single spaced and no longer than 200 words, must be
submitted electronically as a .doc or .rtf file by email attachment by 1
March 2008 to: alan.davison_at_stonebow.otago.ac.nz
