The Music Graduate Student Association of the University at Buffalo is accepting paper proposals for the third annual Graduate Symposium on Music to be held on February 26-27, 2010. The conference will feature a keynote address by Mark Katz of the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill. Professor Katz is the author of Capturing Sound: How Recording Technology has Changed Music (University of California Press, 2004), and The Violin: A Research and Information Guide (Routledge, 2006).
The symposium aims to present a broad range of contemporary music research, to encourage stimulating conversation among participants, and to suggest methodological connections across a wide array of topics. Papers addressing topics in musicology, ethnomusicology, and music theory will be considered. Papers must not exceed twenty minutes in length, and will be followed by 10 minutes of questions.
Proposals must be received by 5:00 p.m. EST, Friday, January 1, 2010. Please e-mail proposals to UBGSoM@gmail.com. Include in the body of your message your name, institutional affiliation, and the title of your paper. Also indicate any specific technology requirements (computer projection, audio, video players, etc.). Your paper proposal, not to exceed 350 words, should be attached to the e-mail in the form of a .doc, .docx, or .pdf file. Please DO NOT include your name or institutional affiliation in the attachment.
Those submitting proposals will be contacted by the Music Graduate Student Association by January 20, 2010. Speakers will be asked to provide (by February 10, 2010) an edited abstract (250-word maximum) and short biography (100-word maximum) for the printed program.
