London, Ontario 2022

Fourth Working in Music Conference

Starting Over? Popular Music and Working in Music in a Post-Pandemic World.

University of Western Ontario, London, Ontario, Canada
May 22-25, 2022
organized jointly with IASPM

IASPM-Canada and the Working in Music research network (WIM) invite abstracts for their joint 2022 conference, to be held at the University of Western Ontario, in London, Ontario, Canada. The IASPM/WIM 2022 joint conference welcomes scholarly research from all disciplines that engages with the changing contexts of musical practice experience—music making, the circulation of music,musical pedagogy and fandom, music and social movements, and various other dimensions of musical engagement – playing, dancing, streaming, listening.

For more than a year, the global pandemic has highlighted and accelerated the destabilization of practices and institutions of music making and partaking. The enforced hiatus from many aspects of public life offers a chance to evaluate music practices. Which have continued? Which ones will resume? Which ones may not return, at least not as they were? While we welcome papers on any aspects of popular music, we encourage papers that align with the conference subthemes.
