In recent years, the so-called “digital revolution” has meant a radical transformation of our lives that has established new habits and quickly modified the way we learn, work and relate. Musicology has not been left out of this era of vertiginous changes, being the object of an unprecedented expansion that affects not only its sources, methods or research problems, but also its own disciplinary cartography, that is, the ways of understanding, experiencing and communicating musicological work and the possible ways of approaching the knowledge of music and sound, from their broadest perspective. Thus, along with the digital issue, the consideration of music as performance and not merely as a written text, the exploration of musical exchanges on a global scale, the relationship of music with various agents and recipients (regardless of the composer) or the transfer and application of musicological knowledge in today’s world are increasingly frequent topics that are contributing to renew the agenda and to underline the social and cultural functions of a discipline in motion. The X SEdeM Conference – Baeza 2021 will examine the way in which musicology is assimilating these paradigm shifts and offers a sample of the complex and accelerated re-articulation of research fields and practices.
