Alternative Histories Of Electronic Music call for papers

Open call for papers on alternative histories of electronic music

The University Of Leeds and The Science Museum has put out an open call for papers to be presented at a conference on alternative histories of electronic music in April next year. The conference is part of an AHRC funded project exploring the work of musician and musicologist Hugh Davies. Submissions are open to all disciplines, but the organisers have a particular interest in papers on electroacoustic music, science and technology, and talks that deviate from the established narrative of the development of electronic music.

The deadline for submissions is 31 October. They should be about 500 words in length and emailed, along with a 100 word author bio, to The conference will take place between 15-16 April next year, and the journal Organised Sound is planning a themed issue to coincide with it. A template for submissions and more information on areas of interest can be found here.
