Hello, is it you I’m looking for…

The seventh annual Music Research, Now! symposium invites Turku-based researchers from whatever field of study, engaging with music or sound, to present their ongoing research at this event.

The main purpose of the event is to facilitate networking among music researchers from various departments and units at the University of Turku, Åbo Akademi University, Turku University of Applied Sciences, Sibelius Museum, and other educational and cultural institutes in Turku. We especially encourage scholars from such fields as, but not limited to, musicology, music education, cultural history, art and media studie​s, cultural studies, sociology, philosophy, gender studies, and archive work, to actively participate in the event. The symposium is an opportunity for a researcher to receive feedback from the entire pool of music/sound researchers working in the city.

Because of the growing number of international and exchange students and researchers, this cfp is written in English, but papers are invited in Finnish and Swedish in addition to English.

The presentations will be speed talks: a 10-minute presentation and 5 minutes for discussion. 

The seminar program has now been published and can be downloaded here:
