Call for Papers: Improvise Here! Profiles in Practice

 
The International Institute for Critical Studies in Improvisation, in partnership with the Guelph Jazz Festival and the University of Guelph, invites proposals for presentations at our annual interdisciplinary international conference. The colloquium will take place September 14-18 as part of the 23nd annual Guelph Jazz Festival. Featuring panel discussions, debates, performances, immersive experiences, a sharing of stories and best practices, and dialogues among researchers, artists, and audiences, the colloquium fosters a spirit of collaborative, boundary-defying inquiry and dialogue, and an international exchange of cultural forms and knowledges. This year’s edition of the Guelph Jazz Festival Colloquium will span all five days of the Guelph Jazz Festival. It will take the form of an Expo by showcasing examples of practice-based research projects, and seek to encourage a rethinking of the places where we conventionally look for knowledge.

Call for Papers: Race, Sound, and Technology

 
Current Musicology invites submissions for a special interdisciplinary issue on the intersections of race, sound, and technology. While scholars have written at length about the cultural uses of sound and music technology, many of these discussions exclude race as a category for humanistic and scientific analysis. We seek critical writing that instead turns to the acoustic and technological as key modalities for thinking through the place of race and ethnicity in everyday life, and how the construction of racial and ethnic difference shapes definitions of sound and technology.

We seek contributions from scholars and practitioners with an interest in exploring the possibility of transposing the ”language” of musical improvisation, that is, its discourses, practices and pedagogies, into the “key” or discipline of law, with a specific focus on child protection law.

Call for Papers: Improvisation and the Liberal Arts

 
Like improvisation, the liberal arts advance our understanding of how individuals and communities interact with and relate to one another and derive meaning from human experience. In this special issue of Critical Studies in Improvisation / Études critiques en improvisation, we aim to present scholarship, creative work, and pedagogies that positions improvisation (in any expressive modality) within or in relation to the liberal arts, broadly defined.
