Call for Papers
British Forum for Ethnomusicology Annual Conference 2020
16-19 April 2020, Bath Spa University, Newton Park, Bath, UK
 
Keynote speaker: Dr Angela Impey (SOAS, University of London)
 
As with all BFE Annual Conferences we welcome papers and panels on any aspect of current ethnomusicological research. 
 
The 2020 theme will be Music, Culture and Nature.
 
In a time of mounting environmental concern, ethnomusicology is well placed to contribute to the achievements of ecomusicology (Allen and Dawe, 2016) that interrogate the ‘web of interactions between biodiversity, climate and human wellbeing’ (The Guardian, 6 May 2019). Indeed, ethnomusicologists have already provided insights into the cultural dimensions of ecological crises across a wide range of settings (Grant, 2018; Silvers, 2018). Building on the BFE one-day conference ‘Listening for a Change: Music, Environment, Action’ in 2011, this annual conference will develop ethnomusicology’s critical engagement with the most recent research from disciplines such as environmental science, environmental humanities, sound studies and ecomusicology. Steven Feld’s development of acoustemology prioritises ‘relational practices of listening and sounding’ (2017: 87) across species and materialities, proposing an alternative to soundscape and sound studies. To decentre the human, scholars are increasingly taking a multispecies approach to ethnomusicology.In line with Ochoa Gautier’s writing (2016), how might the study of music and sound allow us to interrogate further the constitution of ontological categories like ‘nature’ and ‘culture’? How do ethnomusicologists evaluate and interpret sonic practices in human, non-human and more-than-human worlds? How are spiritual relationships with the natural environment expressed through sound and music? What can musical practices or sound worlds tell us about the natural environment (and vice versa) which can in turn inform the socio-ecological transition to more environmentally-conscious forms of living? By drawing connections between sound, culture and the world’s ecosystems this conference provides an opportunity for ethnomusicology to make a meaningful contribution to the challenges we face, including the environmental impact of ethnomusicological activities themselves, and of music consumption.
 
We invite you to submit papers, panels, roundtables, posters, and films on any aspect of research. We particularly invite presentations that focus on the intersection of ethnomusicology with the following areas: 
 
Interpretations of the relationship between culture and nature and the constitution of such categories; music, nature and intersectional identity (including ecofeminism, gender, sexuality, race, ethnicity, age, disability); environmental justice, postcolonial politics, indigenous rights, and their intersection;

Environmental impacts of musical practices (materials and musical instruments), and music consumption (technology and the recording industry);

Climate crisis and environmental determinism; the politics of the Anthropocene; values of conservation, preservation and restoration in culture and nature including the relationship between sustainability, culture and heritage; 

Issues of sustainability and diversity across musical, cultural, linguistic and/or biological domains;

Natural or ecological themes in musical discourse (transmission, performance techniques, aesthetics), iconography, imagery and branding; 

Nature and landscape in the performance of musical nationalism or minority identities; 

Human / non-human / environmental interactions through sounding and listening: acoustemology, soundscape ecology, acoustic ecology, and acoustic multinaturalism (after Ochoa Gautier); 

The audible and the inaudible: spirits, animals and plants as musical agents and ethnographic subjects; interspecies communication, bioacoustics and biosemiotics.
