The Institute of Austrian and German Music Research (IAGMR) is pleased to invite papers, panels, and lecture recitals for its international conference at Durham University, on 6-7 September 2024. This two-day conference is an opportunity to discuss all aspects of Austrian and German music and contemporary academic discourse surrounding it. We especially invite perspectives from a range of disciplines, including – but not limited to – historical and cultural musicology, music analysis, performance studies, psychology, philosophy, and screen studies. Submissions on all relevant topics will be considered, but the following prompts may merit special consideration:

  *   Composers with significant anniversaries in 2024 (e.g. Bruckner, Schoenberg, Schmidt). Particular attention may be given to critical reflections on canon construction, the impact of historical distance on understanding discourse and polemics, and the contrast between academic concerns and ‘popular culture’, both now and historically.
  *   Contemporary Austrian and German musical practices.
  *   Cultural exchange and issues of ‘nationalism’, ‘transnationalism’, etc.
  *   Marginalised composers and performers from Austria and Germany, due to class, gender, race, or otherwise.
  *   Music and musical life in interwar Austria and Germany.
  *   Music in/of Austrian/German/Jewish émigré culture in the US, the UK, and beyond.
  *   The relationship between music and politics.
  *   Studies of performance styles, particularly those informed by historical recording and archival performance materials.
