The practice of instrumental and vocal conducting encompasses vastly more than the physical manifestation of it suggests. Over the course of history it has been shaped and defined by individuals and organisations, and yet precisely pinning down what a conductor can, should and does do, continues to be elusive. Scholars and practitioners continue to explore the numerous facets of conducting through historical, philosophical, social and psychological lenses, and the 2019 conference brings together these diverse perspectives to generate interdisciplinary dialogue and raise awareness around issues in the field of conducting today.
Papers are encouraged from any discipline, including, but not limited to:
All topics are welcome and researchers and practitioners are invited to submit proposals for individual papers (20min+ 10min for questions).

Deadline: Monday, 3 December 2018, midnight AEST
