Call For Papers

Call for Proposals: Aims and Scope

Since the 1980s there has been a remarkable efflorescence of research on musical time in a variety of research fields in the humanities as well as in the behavioral and biological sciences. Forty years later, there are few venues for dissemination of music-temporal research across disciplinary and discursive boundaries. Inspired by the conviction that cross-disciplinary sharing of results and perspectives strengthens both fundamental and applied research, the Center for Interdisciplinary Studies of the University of Coimbra, in conjunction with Música Analítica, invites proposals for research presentations at a conference on Interdisciplinary Approaches to Musical Time. This conference will provide a platform for scholars across the disciplines to share results and methods, to envision together a more unified intellectual community, and to stimulate forums for collaboration.
The time and temporality in/of music present complex problems that benefit from a plurality of methods, theories and subjectivities. Música Analítica 2023 approaches musical time in its multiple meanings and relations to phenomena, its diversity in history and culture, and its many experiential modes. Without placing limitations on what disciplines might contribute to a robust set of conversations, the conference organizers anticipate and welcome proposals from:
• all disciplines in musicology, including music theory and analysis, historical musicology, ethnomusicology, popular-music studies, and the history of music theory;
• various fields of the humanities, including classical studies, medieval and early-modern studies; dance, film, poetry and other allied arts; and philosophy of time;
• anthropology, global cultural history, and international area studies;
• behavioral sciences, including music perception and cognition;
• cognitive neuroscience;
• computer science and artificial intelligence.
Priority will be given to presentations of original research that signal exciting future directions, or to presentations that summarize, and discuss the broader significance of, recent research clusters within particular fields and sub-fields. We will also prioritize proposals that respond sensitively to the challenge of simultaneous intelligibility across the discursive divide that separates scientific and humanistic disciplines.

Submission Guidelines
The language of the conference is English. Proposals are for Oral Communications of 20 min followed by 10 minutes for questions and discussion, and should consider the potential interest to the multidisciplinary character of the conference and participants. The core of the proposal should be between 300-500 words, an abstract of 150 words, indicating also 5 keywords that characterize the contribution. You may also include up to three pages of supporting material, such as graphic images, data summaries, musical examples, or lists of publications referenced in the core of the proposal. Any text in the supplementary examples and captions should serve only to illuminate arguments already present in the core of the proposal; it should not introduce new examples, explanations, or evidence.
Each proposal will be read and evaluated anonymously by at least three members of the Scientific Board; proposals recommended by those readers will also be evaluated anonymously by members of the Program Committee. The identity of the presenter should be concealed in the proposal and in the supplementary material. Refer to your own published work in the third person, as if it had been written by another scholar with the same surname as you.

Submission Portal
Proposals will be accepted until May 20, 2023, 11:59PM, Western European Standard Time. Submissions will be processed through the portal EasyChair (you must have/create an account). A proposal includes an Abstract (can be modified later), Keywords and Proposal (PDF).

If you are applying for one of the remote-presentation slots, please note that there may be no direct link to this application from from the Easy Chair site where the proposal will be submitted. Once you complete the form, please return to this page and link directly from here to the application form.

Remote Presentation
Conference organisers seek to maximize in-person participation, as the best way to foster social fluidity, reciprocal exchange and community formation. Recognizing also that some scholars with valuable research to share may be limited by financial, geographical, or physiological constraints, the conference is reserving a limited number of slots for remote presentation. Presenters applying to fill one of those slots should complete the survey and submit it prior to May 20.
