Musiikintutkimus, Nyt! / Musikforskning, Nu! / Music Research, Now!
 
Friday, January 11, 2019 (2pm to 6 pm)
Music Library, Turku City Library (Linnankatu 2, Turku)
 
The eighth annual Music Research, Now! symposium invites Turku-based researchers from whatever field of study, engaging with music or sound, to present their ongoing research at this event.
 
The main purpose of the event is to facilitate networking among music researchers from various departments and units at the University of Turku, Åbo Akademi University, Turku University of Applied Sciences, Sibelius Museum, and other educational and cultural institutes in Turku. We especially encourage scholars from such fields as, but not limited to, musicology, music education, cultural history, art and media studies, cultural studies, sociology, philosophy, gender studies, and archive work, to actively participate in the event. The symposium is an opportunity for a researcher to receive feedback from the entire pool of music/sound researchers working in the city.
 
Because of the growing number of international and exchange students and researchers, this cfp is written in English, but papers are invited in Finnish and Swedish in addition to English.
 
The presentations will be speed talks: a 10-minute presentation and 5 minutes for discussion.

Tervetuloa IIPC:n, musiikintutkimuksen ja mediatutkimuksen yhteiseen iltapäiväseminaarin 12. Joulukuuta (Janus-sali klo 12–18). Seminaarin lähtökohtana toimii Orwellin dystopia 1984, jonka kautta luodaan monipuolinen katsaus 1980-luvun populaarikulttuurin lähihistoriaan; musiikkiin, muotiin, elokuvaan ja pelikulttuuriin.

 

Seminaarin puhujavieraita ovat Clarissa Smith (Sunderland, UK), Freya Jarman (Liverpool, UK) ja Annamari Vänskä Aalto-yliopistosta. Lyhyemmät puheenvuorot esittävät Jaakko Suominen, Kimi Kärki, John Richardson, Laura Saarenmaa, Mari Pajala & Susanna Paasonen (ks. tarkempi ohjelma alla).

 

Seminaarilla on mahdollista suorittaa mediatutkimuksen opintopisteitä aina 5 op:een asti kohdista METU0146 (projektiopinnot), METU1051 (Media ja populaarikulttuuri) sekä musiikintutkimuksen opintopisteitä kohdista MUSI3004 (populaarimusiikki) ja MUSI3005 (laadulliset menetelmät). Seminaarilla voi sopimuksen mukaan myös täydentää aiempia osasuorituksia. 5 op:n suoritusmuotona on seminaarin esityksistä laadittu luentopäiväkirja (n. 6 sivua) sekä seminaarin teemoihin liittyvän, oma 1980-lukuun liittyvän aineistoesimerkin analyysi (n. 6 sivua). Kirjoitelmien tueksi on tarjolla räätälöity lista oheiskirjallisuutta. Ota yhteyttä laura.saarenmaa@utu.fi
