Confounding Expectations: Cultural Meaning in Sound
2019 Graduate Student Conference: Call for Papers and Lecture Recitals
The Graduate Music Society of the University of Calgary School of Creative and Performing Arts is pleased to announce a call for papers and lecture-recitals for its 2019 Graduate Student Conference entitled Confounding Expectations: Cultural Meaning in Sound. The conference will take place on Monday, May 13, and Tuesday, May 14, 2019, in the Rozsa Centre on the University of Calgary campus.
In past years, the conference has attracted an international roster of graduate students, and this year we are pleased to welcome Dr. Barry Truax, Professor Emeritus in the School of Communication and (formerly) the School for the Contemporary Arts at Simon Fraser University, to be our keynote speaker.
We encourage submissions from graduate students in musicology, theory, music education, performance, and composition, and from graduate students from other disciplines, who are studying aspects of cultural meaning in sound. We also welcome submissions on other topics related to music.
The GMS will also be awarding a travel award to one presenter, covering their accommodations for two nights. Any presenters are eligible for the award if they are travelling to Calgary (Calgary-based presenters and University of Calgary students are ineligible) and their presentation relates to the conference theme. The travel award will be awarded to the eligible presenter judged to have submitted the best abstract.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us at the email address above.
