ARP Conference 2018

This is a call for papers for a joint conference arranged by four organisations:

International Association for the Study of Popular Music UK & Ireland Branch (IASPM UK&I)
Association for the Study of the Art of Record Production (ASARP)
Dancecult: Electronic Dance Music Culture Research Network
International

Society for Metal Music Studies (ISMMS)
Hosted by the University of Huddersfield, this event will combine the IASPM UK&I Biennial Conference, with the 13th Art of Record Production Conference (ARP), a conference of ISMMS, and feature the additional participation of Dancecult. The theme of the conference is Crosstown Traffic: Popular Music Studies Theory and Practice.

A recurrent theme within popular music studies has been discussion of how the field can integrate different disciplines and professions, for example exploring both music and its context; involving both practitioners and researchers; and encouraging interdisciplinary and collaborative work. Many different issues make such approaches challenging, and various different popular music focused subject organisations have developed somewhat independently of one another. This conference will bring four such groups together, to exchange knowledge, collaborate, and to encourage crosstalk.

Proposals for presentations, discussion panels and posters are invited that are relevant to recent developments in any of the subject organisations, especially those that explore theory and/or practice. Applications are particularly welcomed that cut across the interests of those involved, and that explore:

two of more of: popular music studies; electronic dance music cultures, metal; or record production
musicians and researchers
music and its contexts
popular music theory and practice
practice based or practice led research
interdisciplinary approaches
interprofessional research
issues relating to identity or ethnicity
gender or sexuality studies that reach across boundaries
political developments affecting multiple contexts
music industry developments affecting wider musical or cultural contexts
technological mediation
performative or embodied understandings
Other innovative proposals are welcome that are related to, but not limited to:

popular music studies and/or practice
record production (interpreted in the broadest sense): the relationships between the production of recorded music and for example practice, business, education, gender and diversity
metal music, practice and cultures
electronic dance music and its cultures
Organising committee:

IASPM UK&I: Rupert Till
ARP: Katia Isakoff, Shara Rambarran
