Call for Papers
Fifth Annual Graduate Conference | 13–14 April 2018
The Temple University Theory, History, and Ethnomusicology Society (THEMUS) invites paper proposals for its fourth annual graduate conference on Saturday, 14 April 2018. Our keynote speaker will be Prof. Daniel Beller-McKenna of the University of New Hampshire, author of Brahms and the German Spirit (2004) and articles about Brahms, nineteenth-century music, and popular music in the twentieth century.
We invite proposals related to theory, analysis, musicology, popular music, or ethnomusicology from graduate students at any point in their course of study. We especially encourage projects that explore interdisciplinary topics, though all proposals will be given equal consideration. Individual proposals should be designed for a 20-minute presentation followed by a 10-minute discussion. Proposals for lecture-recitals and panels should be designed for a 30-minute presentation followed by a 15-minute discussion.
