The 57th Annual Conference of the Royal Musical Association will be hosted by Newcastle University’s International Centre for Music Studies, between Tuesday 14 and Thursday 16 September 2021.
It aims to promote musical research and practice across all repertories, contexts, methodologies and approaches; we welcome proposals that reflect insights from disciplines beyond musicology or consider the place of music within societal well-being.
Presentations are invited in these formats:
- Individual papers (20 minutes);
- Themed sessions of 3-4 papers (90 minutes);
- Lecture-recitals (30 minutes);
- Practice-based research workshops (90 minutes);
- Compositions (up to 10 minutes);
- Poster presentations.
The committee welcomes proposals from scholars and practitioners at all career stages. We aim to represent the entire scope of current musical scholarship. Any individual may submit one proposal; RMA membership is not a prerequisite for submission.
All proposals must be submitted no later than midnight (GMT) on New Year’s Eve, Thursday 31 December 2020. Details of submission procedures for proposals are available here.
