MuAu  - Best Paper Award 2017

The Österreichische Gesellschaft für Musikwissenschaft (Austrian Musicological Society) is awarding a prize for the best academic paper on music in or from Austria (in a broad historical context) or on musicians who were or are associated with Austria in this broad sense.

The unpublished paper should not exceed a length of 10,000 words. Especially welcome are papers that make use of the possibilities of multimedia (e.g., image, audio, video files)—any copyright issues should be clarified by the author of the paper, but this can also be done subsequent to the awarding of the prize. The winning paper will be chosen by a jury composed of the board of directors of the OeGMw and will be published online in Musicologica Austriaca; the publication language is English.

Please submit your paper in English or German and in MS Word format to As the paper will be reviewed anonymously, it should not contain any references to the author’s identity.

The winner will receive a 1000 € prize. All researchers who are members of the Österreichische Gesellschaft für Musikwissenschaft at the time of submission are eligible to participate. The prize will be awarded at the general meeting of the OeGMw during its annual conference in Salzburg (presumably on 24 November 2017).

Deadline for Submission 15 October 2017

"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.

Proposals can be sent to by 30 November 2017. As well as 20-minute papers, contributions in a variety of formats, for example workshops, performance presentations, and posters are welcome.

Deadline for Submission 30 November 2017
