Appel de conférences pour la 6e biennale, « Christian Congregational Music: Local and Global Perspectives Conference », Ripon College Cuddesdon, Oxford, Angleterre, 2-6 August 2021.
« Congregational music-making is a vital and vibrant practice within Christian communities worldwide. It reflects, informs, and articulates convictions and concerns that are irreducibly local even as it flows along global networks. Even in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, Christian communities are reaffirming sacred music traditions, exploring digital technologies, and discovering innovative ways to remain connected and minister to believers during uncertain and unprecedented times. The summer of 2021 marks the ten year anniversary of the Christian Congregational Music conference. Since its inception, the goal of the conference has been to expand the avenues of scholarly inquiry into congregational music-making by bringing together world-class scholars and practitioners to explore the varying cultural, social, and spiritual roles music plays in the life of various Christian communities around the world. In spite of the challenges the pandemic poses to our traditional means of physically gathering at Ripon College in Cuddesdon, the Christian Congregational Music conference committee is working to develop ways for us to celebrate its ten year milestone in the safest and most engaging formats available. Therefore, we are pleased to invite proposals for the sixth biennial conference between Monday, August 2 and Friday, August 6, 2021. The conference will feature guest speakers, roundtables and workshops that reflect the ever-broadening scope of research and practice in Christian congregational music-making around the world. »
