Call for Contributions: 1. International Artistic Jazz Research Symposium

Announcement and Call for Contributions: 1. International Artistic Jazz Research Symposium

In partnership with

Institute for Jazz Research, University of Music and Performing Arts Graz

Jam Music Lab Private University for Jazz and Popular Music Vienna

Date: 6 October, 2019
Venue: Jam Music Lab Private University Vienna, Guglgasse 8, Gasometer B, 1110 Vienna
Submission Deadline: 19 August 2019

Artistic research is an emerging branch of research in the arts, which operates in and through artistic practices. Jazz researchers have emphasized the need for an independent, international network to develop the field. This symposium will formally inaugurate the network, provide opportunities for discussions and invites presentations on a variety of relevant themes and topics including (but not restricted to) the following:

# specifics of artistic jazz research
# methodical considerations
# presentation/publication formats 
# best practice models
# quality assurance and assessment criteria 
# relationship of artistic jazz research to the ‘scientific’ research communities
# further development of the network

The symposium aims for a broad discussion organized in several themed panels and a small selection of individual papers and artistic research presentations. The panels involve one or more opening statements (5-10 minutes), followed by longer discussions including questions and comments from the audience. Individual paper presentations should be no longer than 20 minutes followed by 10 minutes of discussion. However, we also welcome proposals for alternative presentation formats in artistic research as well as suggestions of additional themes and topics. Experienced academics as well as emerging artist-researchers are encouraged to contribute.

Proposals for contributions should include: title, name, institutional affiliation, country, type of contribution (panel, paper, alternative format), abstract (up to 150 words) and a short CV (up to 100 words).
Please submit your proposal via e-mail to the convenor (michael.kahr@kug.ac.at) until 19 August, 2019. Acceptance of abstracts will be sent to authors soon thereafter. The full program will be made available via www.jammusiclab.com.
There is no participation fee. We kindly ask for registration by contacting the convenor.

Erzherzog-Johann-Forschungspreis des Landes Steiermark goes to… “Jazz & the City”

What an honour – I just received the Erzherzog-Johann-Forschungspreis des Landes Steiermark 2018 for my book Jazz & the City: Jazz in Graz von 1965 bis 2015 (Leykam, 2016). The award acknowledges the quality of my work and underlines the relevancy of jazz for the cultural history of our region (unfortunately the book is sold out, but there is a new edition underway).
