Interculturality is about the interaction of cultures. It might be regarded as a practice through which individuals from different cultures learn more about their own culture and the culture of others. One example is the Chinese Whispers™ project at the University of Hull, which seeks to enable members of the University, local schools, and community choirs to learn Mandarin Chinese through the medium of song and to promote intercultural awareness.*

This online symposium will feature invited presentations and selected submissions from researchers, performers and composers on intercultural practice involving music. We invite contributions exploring this theme from a range of perspectives, including musical, historical, psychological, educational, health and wellbeing. Contributions are welcome from researchers, performers and composers at all levels and are especially encouraged from postgraduate students and early-career researchers. In addition to spoken papers, live/recorded performances and compositions, a panel discussion will be held with our keynote speakers, Professors Lily Chen-Hafteck, Laudan Nooshin and Amanda Bayley, Drs Arla Good and Fang Liu. Submissions should show how the topic relates to music and intercultural practice.

Please send abstracts for spoken presentations, performances or compositions (250 words) to musicICP@hull.ac.uk by Monday 1st March 2021. For further information, please email: musicICP@hull.ac.uk.

Symposium Committee: Yanyi Lu, Eloise McCann, James Rushworth, Dr Elaine King (Chair), Dr Simon Desbruslais, Dr Shane Lindsay, Dr Rowan Oliver, Dr Alexander Binns
