The Music Graduate Student Association of the University at Buffalo is accepting paper proposals for the fifth annual Graduate Symposium on Music to be held on March 3-4, 2012. The conference will feature a keynote address by Tim Carter of the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Professor Carter's research ranges from Monteverdi and Mozart's Italian operas to a recent book on "Oklahoma!" The Making of an American Musical (Yale University Press, 2007) and forthcoming work on Kurt Weill.
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. We are looking for all disciplines to apply in their research of music.
Please e-mail proposals to UBMugSym2012@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 or .docx file. Please DO NOT include your name or institutional affiliation in the attachment.
