The Department of Arts, Culture and Media in connection with the research project Music Dynamics in the Music Industry funded by the NWO KIEM (Creative Industry – Knowledge Innovation Mapping) at the University of Groningen is pleased to announce a two-day symposium to be held on May 16-17, 2019. The symposium will bring together both scholars and industry professionals to share insights on the topic of Gender Dynamics in the Music Industry. The intention is to share resources and create a dialogue to better address the lack of gender parity within the music industry. Further, we seek to extend to discussion to fields connected to, but not exclusive to the (relatively better researched) performance sphere. We welcome scholars and industry professionals from all genders and from all genres of music from classical to folk and popular.
Please send your abstract, a short bio (less than 100 words) and affiliation to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 15th, 2019.
Abstracts should be less than 350 words, in English, and with a relevant title. Proposed panels are also welcome and should contain a short panel abstract – less than 300 words and individual presentation abstracts, less than 350 words.
