The Jazz Chameleon: The 9th Nordic Jazz Conference

Call for papers

The Jazz Chameleon: The 9th Nordic Jazz Conference
The Finnish Jazz & Pop Archive, Helsinki, August 19–20, 2010

Since its arrival on the public scene in the early 20th century, jazz
has been characterised by a remarkable ability to cross musical,
social and cultural borderlines. In terms of musical style and
character, jazz has often crossed genre categories and undergone
through radical changes. In terms of geographical and cultural
boundaries, one of the most notable developments in jazz has been the
internationalisation of its sound. Furthermore, jazz has also been
able to ‘travel in time’. The explicit sense of traditions
characterises jazz history: jazz music speaks to the past and is
informed by what has been before. 

What are these crossings really like? How have they changed during
the history of jazz?

Organisers of The Jazz Chameloen: The 9th Nordic Jazz Conference
welcome presentations on generical, geographical, historical and
other (e.g. theoretical, aesthetic, educational) crossings in jazz.
The main emphasis of the presentations will be on Nordic countries
and their histories but we warmly welcome other aspects as well.

Proposals for presentations and work groups should be submitted as
abstracts of up to 200 words by April 1, 2010 to
janne at jazzpoparkisto.net. Please include the name of the speaker(s),
email, affiliation, and the title of the paper or workshop group. 

The conference will have two invited keynote speakers, planning for
Professor Bruce Johnson (Universities of Turku, Glasgow, UK and
Macquarie, Australia) and N.N.  (tba). Furthermore, the conference
will feature discussion on the collaboration between the members of
Nordic jazz archives as well as performances by Finnish jazz

There will be a small participation fee. The main organiser of the
conference is the Finnish Jazz & Pop Archive. More information will
be published at the http://www.jazzconference.net.

On behalf of the organisers,
Janne Mäkelä, Director
The Finnish Jazz & Pop Archive
