Call for Submissions

Music and geography is an area of research that examines the intersection between geography and the production of music. Geographers have been doing research in this area for decades. This series of panels builds on last year’s momentum in New Orleans through continuing to create community and exchanging ideas among people who are interested in space, place, and music. “Space and place” are more than just where music is made or distributed. They are central to the “sounding and resounding of music.” Indeed, space and place are critical to the production, comprehension, and likability of music. When we listen to music we’re hearing how culture, time, migration, power, industry, race, gender, sexuality, class, religion, climate, language and a host of other social, environmental and cultural factors that are rooted in place, gives rise to a particular kind of sound. No musician lives outside these forces and the music they make reflects them. Music is spatialized and this collection of panels will bring that idea to the fore.

Topics include but, are not limited to:
• Geography, Music, and Culture
• Race and the Spatial Production of Music
• Sexuality and the Spatial Production of Music
• Gender and the Spatial Production of Music
• Music, Geography, and Class
• Landscape and Music
• The Spatial Politics of Music
• Space, Place and Popular Music
• The Sounds of Social Forces
• Music and the City
• Music, Migration, and Diaspora
• Music, Geography, and Technology
• Music, Geography, and Power
• Environment and Music
• Politics, Place, and Music
• Place and the Performance of Music
• Architecture and Music

Panelists with a wide range of interests and disciplinary backgrounds are encouraged to submit an abstract. Please send a 100 word abstract to rashad.shabazz@asu.edu
Abstracts are due by October 23rd.
