Following the government and university measures to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, the Song Studies Conference 2020 had to be cancelled. This conference was planned to take place from 1-3 July in Ghent, Belgium. See here for the original programme.

The Song Studies Network aims to bring together researchers from various disciplines investigating the medium of song (both in its material and performed existence), its performances (in any form) and reception (in any context). Affiliated researchers are active in the fields of musicology, literary studies, history, sociology, performance studies, cognition studies, anthropology, etc. The SSN wants to encourage an interdisciplinary and transhistorical dialogue, breaking ground for a new research field: song studies.
