Call for Papers for the MusicaFemina International Symposium Budapest
“Gender and Creativity in Music Worlds”
January 8-9, 2020
As part of its Hungarian event series, MusicaFemina International is organizing a
symposium and workshop in Budapest on January 8-9, 2020. The initiative, involving
Austria, Hungary, Slovenia and Germany, is primarily aimed at creating the conditions
for more balanced relations of gender in the various spheres and institutions of music
The Budapest symposium will provide a public forum for researchers and music
professionals — including musicians, educators, critics and industry personnel —
interested in the causes and modalities of gender inequalities and gendered power
dynamics present in the multiple genres and worlds of music. The symposium is cosupported by the Creative Europe Programme of the European Union.
For music professionals and academics in post-socialist Europe opportunities to
participate and share ideas concerning gender and music have been relatively limited
in comparison with colleagues in Western countries. For this reason, we particularly
welcome proposals from the Central and East European region.
The programme will include a keynote talk, three conference panels, a roundtable
discussion with artists, and a workshop for musicians, music (industry) students and
music industry professionals. Presentations at the conference panels detailed below
will be selected by a committee of experts.
The planned keynote speaker is Ann Werner, Associate Professor, Gender
Studies, Södertörn University.
