CALL FOR PAPERS
The Anxiety of Influence: Musical Intersections of
Old and New
The Music Graduate Students Association (MGSA) at the University
of Toronto will hold their fourth annual Student Conference from the 27th
February (Friday Evening) to the 28th February (Saturday Evening), 2004,
at the University of Toronto. The purpose of our Student Conference is
to provide a forum for scholarly discussion by graduate students of all
aspects of music.
We are now soliciting proposals from graduate students for papers, round
tables, lecture-recitals, compositions and other presentations for our
conference. We hope to include topics from a wide range of musical disciplines,
including musicology, music theory, education, performance, and composition,
and we especially encourage interdisciplinary approaches to music.
We invite proposals on any musical topic. However, we are particularly
interested in proposals dealing with the reinvention of older techniques/instruments
(e.g. the current trend of writing new music for harpsichord).
Please send a 250-500 word abstract describing your proposed presentation/paper by email to Eleanor M. Johnston (email@example.com) by January 8th, or your composition (you are responsible for finding and rehearsing performers) by January 25th.
Compositions may be mailed to me at:
Eleanor M. Johnston
The winning paper will be eligible for publication in our on-line Music Journal Discourses in Music (www.discourses.ca)
