Quo  Vadis Hochschule?
1. Tagung des Österreichischen Netzwerks Hochschulforschung

Institut für Höhere Studien (IHS), 4. - 5. Dezember 2017
1080, Josefstädterstraße 39

Im Rahmen der ersten Tagung des Österreichischen Netzwerks Hochschulforschung sollen aktuelle Fragen und zukünftige Herausforderungen der Hochschulentwicklung und -forschung behandelt und dabei ein Überblick über gegenwärtige Arbeiten der Hochschulforschung in Österreich geboten werden.

In diesem Zusammenhang sind unter anderem folgende Fragen interessant: Ist die „Politik“ – in- und außerhalb der Hochschulen – evidenzbasierter geworden? Oder hängt „alles“ immer nur von den finanziellen Ressourcen ab? Wie sehr ist die Hochschulforschung anlassgetrieben und damit reaktiv auf einzelne Maßnahmen bezogen? Was hat die Hochschulforschung in Österreich zu Entwicklungen im Hochschulbereich beigetragen, was trägt sie derzeit bei und was sollte sie beitragen? Was zeigt uns ein kritischer Blick auf den gesamten Tertiärbereich in all seinen Facetten? Oder: Quo Vadis Hochschule?

Teilnahmegebühren: € 150,- (Studierende € 75,-)

Data  First!? Digital Humanities Austria Konferenz

4. - 6. Dezember 2017 in Innsbruck

Die 4. Digital Humanities Austria Konferenz findet dieses Jahr in Kooperation mit DARIAH, CLARIN und Digital Humanities Austria an der Universität Innsbruck (A) vom 4.-6. Dezember 2017 statt.

Die Konferenz steht unter dem Motto "Data First!?". Daten, ihre (halb)-automatisierte Produktion, ihre Qualität, Analyse, Interpretation und Visualierung gewinnen auch in den Geisteswissenschaften eine immer größere Bedeutung.

Ziel dieser Konferenz ist es, den Erfahrungsaustausch zwischen geisteswissenschaftlich Forschenden, Mitarbeitenden aus Bibliotheken, Archiven, aber auch aus den Computerwissenschaften und der Technik zu fördern. Erfolgreiche Forschungsarbeit in den Digital Humanities ist (fast) immer fachübergreifend, Kompetenzen aus den unterschiedlichsten Feldern werden benötigt. Deshalb ist es uns ein besonderes Anliegen, über den engeren Bereich der geisteswissenschaftlichen Forschung hinauszublicken und neuere Entwicklungen in verwandten Gebieten ebenfalls mit einzubeziehen.

Artists as Citizens - 2018 Reflective Conservatoire Conference

Guildhall School, 20 - 23 February 2018

Economic, social and political landscapes are transforming in unparalleled ways across the globe. However bewildering this may be, one thing is certain: we are living in a time where artists and the arts must realise their potential more fully as leaders in society. The power of the arts is long established in history, but in contemporary times the disciplines of music and theatre have in many contexts drifted to the margins. Re-establishing them as a central part of society requires activism, renewed commitment to artistic values and practices. Equally it requires new visions, creativity and flexibility from artists and arts organisations to respond dynamically to both local contexts and global issues.

The 2018 Reflective Conservatoire Conference will consider how artists, arts organisations, and specialist higher education in the performing arts in particular, can and are already engaging with artistic citizenship within contemporary societies.

What are the possibilities for practitioners individually and collectively? How is specialist higher education changing in response to this agenda; what are the implications and opportunities for organisational development and leadership?

"The Power of Musical Networks"
Orpheus Seminar 2018

Ghent 21 - 22 February 2018

The aim of the Seminar is to find examples of the use of Network models/principles/theories that bridge the potential gap between the Scientific Disciplines dealing with Network Theory and the creative artistic world using them.
Some questions proposals could address are:

  • Has our understanding, experience and critical discourse of music evolved to keep pace with technological models?
  • Where do the boundaries between network as structure and metaphor lie? Are they porous?
  • How does the use of networks as technologies impact on our imagining, our conceiving of music? Which of the many new affordances find most resonance?
  • What is the explanatory or creative potential of network in non-technological or non-contemporary music?

ARTISTIC RESEARCH WILL EAT ITSELF
9th SAR International Conference on Artistic Research

11 - 13 April 2018
University of Plymouth

The provocation Artistic Research Will Eat Itself can be understood as a warning against the dangers of methodological introspection, or as a playful invitation to explore the possibilities of a field in a constant state of becoming. In this context, the ‘cannibalism’ of artistic research ‘eating itself’ embodies a dynamic tension between self-destruction and regeneration.

If artistic research eats itself, digests itself and then releases its own waste, does it stink and linger, fertilise new growth or invade new destinations on the bottom of someone’s shoe? If we are to constantly defend and define, are we in danger of having no art left, only the claims for its ability to embody knowledge? When we bite off our own heads do we grow new tails?

Critical perspectives on the discourse surrounding artistic research might be argued to already be too formulaic or self-defeating. Making a case for its own institutional legitimacy could unwittingly reinforce some of the very things artistic research aims to critique. Yet such onto-epistemological paradoxes can offer a rich territory for exploration along with generative practices that involve reflexivity, automorphogenesis, and recursive feedback loops. In recognising auto-cannibalism as an analogy for broader socio-political and environmental concerns, one of the challenges for artistic research is to respond imaginatively to the dynamic tensions between self-destruction and regeneration.

The Call for Papers is open until January 15th 2018

Together  in Music: Expression, Performance and Communication in Ensembles

12 - 14. April 2018

Conference in York at the National Centre for Early Music

Music ensembles can be experienced, investigated and understood from multiple perspectives. Whilst communication and reception by performers and audience members lie at the heart of this, many other elements play a part, including perception, socio-cultural factors, coordination, digital technologies and environment. This conference aims to bring together music performers, academics, and teachers and offer an interdisciplinary perspective on ensemble performance including theory and practice. Disciplines may include among others music education, music performance, psychology, sociology, ethnomusicology, acoustics, aesthetics, computer science, audio engineering, and music technology.

The conference may include spoken presentations, poster sessions, workshops and performance demonstrations.

"Cognitive  Futures in the Arts and Humanities 2018"

University of Kent 1 - 4 July 2018

Building on the conferences associated with the network Cognitive Futures in the Humanities in Bangor (2013), Durham (2014) and Oxford (2015), Helsinki (2016) and Stony Brook (2017) the 2018 conference aims once again to bring together a wide array of papers from the cognitive sciences, philosophy, literary studies, linguistics, cultural studies, critical theory, film, performance, theatre and dance studies, the visual and sonic arts, musicology and beyond. In accordance with the original purpose of the network, the aims of the conference are:

-to evolve new knowledge and practices for the analysis of culture and cultural objects, through engagement with the cognitive sciences;

-to assess how concepts from the cognitive sciences can in turn be approached using the analytical tools of humanities enquiry (historical, theoretical, contextual);

-to contest the nature/culture opposition whose legacy can be identified with the traditional and ongoing segregation of scientific and aesthetic knowledge.

The CfP is open until 30 November 2017
