CONFERENCE THEME

This year’s conference theme is “In Time: The Past, Present, and Future of Temporality in Flamenco.” We seek to facilitate discourse surround “time” as it has related and currently relates to flamenco, focusing on the impact of history and historicity, the process of transmission, moments and impacts of historical moments of fissure, and understandings of time throughout the history, educational, and presentation of flamenco. From an ethnomusicology perspective, this could include discussions about flamenco time signatures, ideas about how time is practiced, and influences and development in use of time.
