The Musicological Society of the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina and the Academy of Music of the University of Sarajevo announce a call for papers for the 13h International Symposium “Music in Society.” The Symposium traditionally brings together musicologists, ethnomusicologists, theorists, music educators and experts in related fields exploring topical issues of music and musicology. The general theme of “Music in Society” indicates interest in the multidimensional, diversified and transdisciplinary discourse of contemporary musical science and offers a platform for sharing recent research results.

The languages of the symposium are Bosnian/ Croatian/ Serbian and English. The symposium will be held in a hybrid form – with sessions organized as both live presentations and video conference on the Zoom platform.

The registration fee is € 50 (€ 30 for members of the Musicological Society of FBiH) and includes a program booklet and other working materials, as well as a joint lunch/dinner organised for the symposium participants.

The organizers do not cover the costs of travel and accommodation.

Reviewed papers will be published in the Collection of Papers of the 13th International Symposium “Music in Society” in 2024 (English or B/C/S version), indexed in the RILM and EBSCO databases.

Applications should be submitted through the attached form by 30 August 2022 sent to symposium@muzikolosko-drustvo.ba. The form can be downloaded in .doc and .pdf formats. You can also download the entire call in .pdf format.

The Program Committee will inform the applicants if their paper was accepted by 15 September 2022. Information on the program and registration will be announced after this date.
