"Theory, Technology and Methods: Museums’ Interpretation of Musical Traditions"
CIMCIM(국제악기박물관위원회) Annual Conference 2018
Hubei and Shanghai (China), September 10-16, 2018
The ICOM International Committee for Museums and Collections of Music (CIMCIM) welcomes abstracts for their 2018 meeting, which will take place in Hubei and Shanghai (China), between the 10th and 16th September 2018.
The theme of the conference is ‘Theory, Technology and Methods: Museums’ Interpretation of Musical Traditions’. Papers should focus on museological perspectives and approaches to the interpretation, presentation, documentation and conservation, of music traditions through collections in the museum setting. Papers on the impact that museums can have in supporting and stimulating music traditions outside their institutions, and on how musical traditions can influence the way music is displayed will also be welcome.
Some travel grants will be available to contribute to the cost of attending the conference and a call will be issued in the next weeks.
The webpage of the conference will be available soon.
