The RMA Music and Philosophy Study Group is delighted to open the call for Free Session paper proposals at this two-day international conference, to be held in London on 1–2 July 2021. The event will offer an opportunity for those with an interest in music and philosophy to share and discuss work, in the hope of furthering dialogue in this area. Following the success of the 2019 conference format, we will run three types of session:

• Associates Sessions will be hosted by organisations with related interests; 
• Themed Sessions will be organised by individual session convenors, who have issued calls for papers on specific topics; 
• Free Sessions will be open to papers on all topics relating to music and philosophy.

Proposals may be on any topic relating to music and philosophy broadly conceived; we particularly encourage proposals engaging with ethnomusicology, environmental issues, and ethics. Please be advised that no one may present more than once at the conference.


Call for Free Sessions (open from 20 August 2020)

We invite submissions for papers on any topic relating to music and philosophy. The conference presumes inclusive definitions of both music and philosophy. We take music to include all forms and genres of music, art music and popular, secular and sacred, from any and all historical and geographical locales. We take philosophy to include analytic, continental, classical, and non-western thought, as well as critical theory. Regardless of disciplinary affiliation, the committee seeks conceptually rigorous and clearly articulated research that presents a novel argument and advances understanding of its topic.

Collaboration between persons from different disciplines (including music studies, philosophy, performance, composition, psychology, history, literary studies, art history, anthropology, and others) would be especially welcomed. 

Proposals are invited for:
• individual papers (20 minutes) – up to 350 words 
• collaborative papers (up to 30 minutes) – up to 500 words 
• lecture recitals (30 minutes) – up to 350 words  

Please submit proposals by 30 October 2020 using the Free Sessions form (https://musicandphilosophy.ac.uk/events/mpsg-2021/mpsg-2021-call-for-free-sessions/) on the Music and Philosophy website. Decisions will be communicated in November.

All paper submissions will be considered by blind review by the programme committee: 

• Dr Jeremy Coleman (University of Malta)
• Dr Andrew Huddleston (Birkbeck, University of London) 
• Professor Derek Matravers (Open University) 
• Dr Matthew Pritchard (University of Leeds)
