7th Biennial New Perspectives in Flamenco History and Research Symposium
In conjunction with the 32nd Annual Festival Flamenco Alburquerque
The National Institute of Flamenco and the University of New Mexico College of Fine Arts
Albuquerque, New Mexico
June 21-22, 2019
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.
Held in conjunction with the 32nd Annual Festival Flamenco Alburquerque, the New Perspectives in Flamenco History and Research Symposium is a biennial event that is a comprehensive gathering of theorists, practitioners, artists, patrons, and members of the public, each providing a unique opportunity to discuss various aspects of the art form of flamenco, including its history in New Mexico and abroad. We invite faculty, staff and students of higher education, researchers, K-12 educators, community leaders, administrators, non-profit partners, government agencies, and other professionals to participate in the New Perspectives in Flamenco History and Research Symposium. This event is open to the public, providing academic and practical learning opportunities as well as access to the world's foremost flamenco scholars, historians, and artists. The purpose of this conference is to supplement traditional means of education with fresh ideas in the ever-evolving world of flamenco arts.
