>Subject: Music and Consciousness conference
>Conference on Music and Consciousness
>-- 24 - 26 February 2006, University of Sheffield, UK
>A conference jointly organised by The University of Sheffield Department of
>Music and The University of Newcastle's International Centre for Music
>Sponsored by the Society for Music Analysis (SMA) and the European Society
>for the Cognitive Sciences of Music (ESCOM).
>The last 10 years or so have seen the emergence of consciousness
>studies as a multi-disciplinary field of inquiry, partly driven by
>rapid developments in the neurosciences, but also stimulated by
>renewed interest within philosophy and the arts and humanities more
>generally. There is a long history of thought about the relationship
>between music and consciousness, and this conference is intended as
>a forum to bring together the diverse fields within which that
>thinking has gone on. The aim of the conference is therefore to
>approach the subject in as broad and inclusive a manner as possible,
>to provide an opportunity to discover different ways in which the
>relationship has been theorised and described, and to propose some
>of the ways in which future research and practice might develop. The
>conference will consist entirely of plenary sessions so as to enable
>the most inclusive and wide-ranging participation, and significant
>amounts of time will be allocated for discussion.
>Given overlapping terminology and different intellectual traditions,
>proposals are invited for papers addressing any aspects of music and
>consciousness, music and subjectivity, music and altered states,
>music and subjective experience, and the historical and cultural
>mediations of thinking about music and consciousness.
>Abstracts for papers of 30 minutes duration should be sent by email to
> or, bearing in mind the
>following guidelines:
>* abstract of not more than 200 words
>* include your institutional affiliation and provide clear contact details
>You will be notified of the outcome by 11 November 2005.
>Conference directors: David Clarke (University of Newcastle, UK), Eric
>Clarke (University of Sheffield, UK)
>End of AUDITORY Digest - 9 Aug 2005 to 10 Aug 2005 (#2005-158)
