4th International Conference of Dalcroze Studies: The listening body in action!

Call for submissions
The call for submissions can be found here. We invite presentations on the listening body in action, broadly conceived. Presentations should relate to the practice, theory, history and/or philosophy of Dalcroze Eurhythmics or related practices.

Extended Deadline for all submissions: Sunday 18th November 2018 23:59 (UK time)

Please note two changes for ICDS4:
• The maximum number of presentations is two per presenter and in such cases one of these should be collaborative, i.e. co-authored/co-presented.
• The peer review process for ICDS is now anonymised; reviewers do not know the identity of the proposal author/s.

We are thrilled to announce that our keynotes for ICDS4 will be:

Professor Wayne Bowman (Professor of Music and Music Education (retired), Brandon University, Canada)
Professor Liora Bresler (Department of Curriculum and Instruction, University of Illinois at Urbana, Champaign, USA)
Dr Andrea Schiavio (Postdoctoral Researcher, Centre for Systematic Musicology, University of Graz, Austria; Honorary Research Fellow, Department of Music, University of Sheffield, UK)
Jacqueline Vann, Diplôme Supérieur Jaques-Dalcroze (UK)

Registration and bursaries
The fees for ICDS4 have been set at very competitive rates. There are early-bird rates and student discounts. A small number of bursaries is also available to help delegates meet the costs of the conference. More information on the website.
