”Dis­ci­plin­ing Mu­sic Her­itage” con­fer­ence

The next IASPM-Norden Conference takes on the topic of music heritage in Seinäjoki 13–14 October 2022.

Music is deeply implicated in issues of intangible cultural heritage (ICH), and to further critical interdisciplinary investigation into the topic, the Nordic branch of the International Association for the Study of Popular Music (IASPM-Norden) and the Finnish Society for Ethnomusicology (SES) cordially invite all interested individuals to participate in the conference. As the title of the event evinces, a central aim is to interrogate the disciplinary boundaries, frameworks and repercussions when dealing with music as heritage. In addition to takes on academic disciplinary politics and idiosyncratic whims of scholarship, the organisers invite proposals addressing all levels and settings of music heritagisation, ranging from global organisations and national authorities to local tourist boards and municipal administration of creative industries.
