Fifth International Conference on Analytical

Approaches to World Music (AAWM 2018)

& Eighth Folk Music Analysis Workshop (FMA 2018)

Thessaloniki, Greece, June 26–29, 2018 

The School of Music Studies of the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, in collaboration with the musicological societies AAWM (Analytical Approaches to World Music) and FMA (Folk Music Analysis), is organizing the joint conference "Fifth International Conference on Analytical Approaches to World Music (AAWM 2018) & Eighth Folk Music Analysis Workshop (FMA 2018)" in Thessaloniki from 26 to 29 June 2018. 

The rich musical heritage of the world is receiving increasing attention in ethnomusicology, music theory and analysis, music history, music psychology, and music informatics. Analytical Approaches to World Music 2018 is the fifth in a series of conferences that bring together scholars to explore the panoply of global musical traditions, both past and present, that lie outside the purview of Western Art Music, from the broadest possible array of theoretical, cultural, historical and analytical perspectives, in order to foster interdisciplinary and cross-cultural dialogue and promote new approaches and methods. It will meet jointly with the 8th International Workshop on Folk Music Analysis (FMA 2018).

The conference welcomes submissions that examine world musical traditions from any analytical and theoretical angles, including (but not limited to) ethnographic, historical, formal, computational, and cognitive perspectives. Submission formats include papers, posters, special sessions, lecture-recitals, and workshops. Submissions can be applied for either AAWM 2018 or FMA 2018 at the corresponding websites.
