SASRIM cordially invites you to its ninth annual congress to be held at the South African College of Music, University of Cape Town from 16 to 18 July 2015.
This year, for the first time, two keynote speakers were approached to speak at SASRIM’s annual congress, namely Christopher Ballantine (emeritus professor, University of KwaZulu-Natal) and Lydia Goehr (professor, Columbia University). We look forward to these influential scholars’ presentations which will be a highlight of the conference.
Submissions are invited on any research topic related to music. Presentations will be accepted solely on the basis of their quality, and will not be limited to any particular subject matter or research approach. SASRIM hopes to encourage the submission of a wide variety of proposals, including those that cross disciplinary boundaries and offer new perspectives.
We extend a special invitation to undergraduate and postgraduate students to submit proposals and/or attend the congress, and thereby use SASRIM as a forum for intellectual growth, networking and career development. Students whose proposals are accepted may apply to SASRIM for limited financial support.
See you in Cape Town in July!
Please see the Conference Website for more information.
SASRIM Eighth Annual Conference, 2014
SASRIM hosted well-known music education specialist Lucy Green from the Institute of Education at the University of London, as keynote speaker at the conference in 2014.
Lucy Green (Professor of Music Education, Institute of Education, University of London) is a leading music education specialist, with a focus on the philosophy and sociology of music education, particularly musical identities. She is the author of five single-author books and her work has significantly influenced the thinking about musical learning and pedagogy, particularly how the learning practices of popular musicians can inform and change formal learning (e.g. Music, Informal Learning and the School and How Popular Musicians Learn).

SASRIM Sixth Annual Conference, 2012
The Sixth Annual SASRIM Conference was held at Tshwane University of Technology from 19 to 21 July 2012. Proposals were invited on a wide range of music related topics, encouraging discussions across previously segregated sub-disciplines.
SASRIM Fifth Annual Conference, 2011
The Fifth Annual SASRIM conference was held at Rhodes University, Grahamstown, from 23 to 25 June 2011.
|SASRIM was founded in order to draw together persons researching all fields of music, a move that was intended to stimulate discussions across previously segregated sub-disciplines and to result in synergistic benefits to our research and even to the way in which we conceptualise our research. With this aim in mind, and in contrast to its previous congresses and the 2010 IMS-SASRIM Conference, SASRIM decided not to specify a theme for its 2011 congress. Participants were invited to submit proposals for lecture demonstrations and round-table discussions as well as individual papers.|
The dates of the 2011 Congress were chosen so that participants could stay in Grahamstown for the IASPM conference (27 June–1 July) and the National Arts Festival, Grahamstown.
IMS-SASRIM 2010 Conference
The SASRIM 2010 conference was held in collaboration with a planned regional meeting of the International Musicological Society (IMS) in Stellenbosch, South Africa. Please visit the IMS-SASRIM 2010 Conference Website for more information.
