In 2018 The Barry S. Brook Center for Music Research and Documentation celebrates the centennial of its founder, Barry S. Brook (1918–1997). To celebrate his vision and accomplishments, The Brook Center is organizing an international conference on the topic of Musicology in the Age of (Post)Globalization, which will take place from Tuesday, 3 April to Friday, 6 April 2018, at The Graduate Center, The City University of New York, in New York City. We are inviting papers based on new research that address the multifaceted topics of music scholarship transcending national, cultural, and disciplinary boundaries. If music theorists, historical musicologists, and ethnomusicologists inhabit separate societies, publish in separate journals, and adhere to separate methodologies and literatures, this conference seeks to nourish a dialogue that looks at music research as a whole. After U.K.’s Brexit vote and the U.S. presidential election, which signal the end of an era and the emergence of a new world, a critical look at our discipline and its international position is ever more timely. With this in mind we are particularly seeking discussions on 21st-century musicology in the context of social, cultural, economic, and political structures, and the impact of 20th-century globalization or its perceived limits.

We seek to inspire papers and panels on the following themes:

  • Applied ethno/musicology
  • Breaking the musicology-ethnomusicology divide
  • Ethno/musicology and economics
  • Ethno/musicology and mobility
  • Ethno/musicology and political systems
  • Ethno/musicology and postcolonialism
  • Ethno/musicology outside the academy
  • Global issues
  • Institutions and societies

Please submit a proposal, with title and an abstract of no more than 300 words, and include contact information (address, phone, and email) before 1 June 2017. Proposals for whole panels are welcome.
