About the conference

OCIICSC 2020 is the fourth conference designed to bring together researchers and practitioners in order to generate interdisciplinary dialogue about, raise awareness of, and generate further development in the field of conducting studies. As the three previous conferences have shown, the practice of instrumental and vocal conducting encompasses vastly more than its physical manifestation suggests. The Conference continues to explore conducting’s many facets through a range of disciplines including musicology, ethnomusicology, music education, philosophy, psychology, anthropology, and sociology. Previous Keynote speakers have included: Sian Edwards, William Christie, Odaline de la Martinez, Stephen Darlington, Alice Farnham, David Robertson and Andrea Quinn.

OCIICSC 2020 will be held at St Anne’s College, University of Oxford 25-27 June 2020. Conference details including accommodation and dining options will be published on the conference website in early 2020.

A special issue of Music Performance Research dedicated to the field of Conducting Studies, is currently in process and will be published in late 2019 featuring articles selected from conference presentations given in 2016 and 2018.

2020 Organizing committee: Dr John Traill (University of Oxford); Dr Cayenna Ponchione-Bailey (University of Oxford); Dr Carolyn Watson (University of Kansas); Professor Fiona M. Palmer (Maynooth University); and Dr Jeremiah Cawley (Loras College).
