MUSICULT ‘16 / 3rd Music and Cultural Studies Conference

MUSICULT '16 Music and Cultural Studies Conference, organized by DAKAM (Eastern Mediterranean Academic Research Center), will take place on May 13-14, 2016.

MUSICULT '16 Conference aims to trace the tracks of the dialectic correlation between music and culture. Artistic crops of this correlation from the very ancient roots of the communication with sound to the contemporary state are among the field of interest of the conference. During the conference and within the context of culture and identity, well-known periods and moments of the history of music in the all possible meanings, forms and genres will be brought to the agenda and new areas of interest, that will be revealed by this perspective, will be explored on the basis of the main focus point as "Local versus Universal".

Keith Negus, Professor of Musicology at Goldsmiths, University of London.

All submitted papers are subject to double blind peer review. Conference proceedings are going to be available on DVD as e-book and DAKAM's digital library with an ISBN number before the conference and will be sent to be reviewed for inclusion in the "Thomson & Reuters Web of Science's Conference Proceedings Citation Index" (CPCI) and Google Scholars.
