Following our successful conferences in 2019 and 2020, we have decided to organize a third one this year, which will in practice consist of short sessions to run over a series of weeks in May 2021. See below for our call for papers. We look forward to hearing from you!
We are delighted to welcome submissions for the third edition of our conference on early recordings. The previous two editions (Past Performing Practices in Contemporary Research, 2019, and Methodologies in Research and Practice, 2020) confirmed that research into early recordings, as documents of performance practice, is thriving, and our conference provide a much-needed forum for discussion around new research activities and findings in the area. This year, the conference shall address diversity in early recordings, with the conference committee welcome submissions beyond classical repertoire. The event itself, ‘Early Recordings: Diversity in Practice’, shall run online, over three half-day events on the 5th, 12th and 19th of May, from 4-7pm (UK time). This short format allows for papers and/or research snapshots to be grouped around one specific topic in the day, followed by an invited research talk and informal chats over online drinks.
Attendance is free, and Zoom links will be shared closer to time.
We invite scholars and performers interested in any aspect of early recordings (pre-1945) as documents of performance practice to submit 250-word abstracts for either 1) 20 minute paper, or 2) research snapshot of 10 minutes, to both Dr Inja Stanovic (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Dr. Eva Moreda Rodríguez (Eva.MoredaRodriguez@glasgow.ac.uk) by 1 April 2021.
