JAZZ PAPERS: Rhythm Changes Conference Call For Papers

The fourth Rhythm Changes conference: Jazz Utopia will take  place at Birmingham City University in the United Kingdom from 14 to 17 April 2016.
Keynote Speakers
Professor Ingrid Monson (Harvard University) Professor Raymond MacDonald (University of Edinburgh)
We invite paper submissions for Jazz Utopia, a four-day multi-disciplinary conference that brings together leading researchers across the arts and humanities. The event will feature academic papers, panels and poster sessions alongside an exciting programme of concerts delivered in partnership with the Birmingham Conservatoire and Jazzlines. Jazz has long been a subject for utopian longing and hopes for a better future; it has also been the focus of deeply engrained cultural fears, visions of suffering and dystopian fantasies.
