2014 Graduate Student Conference: Call for Papers and Lecture Recitals


The graduate students of the University of Calgary’s School of Creative and Performing Arts, Music, are pleased to announce a call for papers for their 2014 Graduate Student Conference entitled Confounding Expectations: Music(s) and Place(s). The conference will take place on Monday, April 28, and Tuesday April 29, 2014 in the Rozsa Centre on the U of C campus.

The aim of the conference is to provide a collegial environment in which graduate students can present their research and form professional connections. We encourage submissions from graduate students in musicology, theory, music education, performance, and composition, and from graduate students from other disciplines, who are working on music topics or music-related topics.

Presentations should be no longer than twenty minutes and lecture-recitals no longer than forty minutes. A ten-minute question period will follow each presentation. Abstracts should be approximately 350 words and must contain no information that could identify you or your institution. Be sure to attach the official submission form to your abstract. All abstracts will be evaluated anonymously and should be suitable for publication in the conference program. Submissions must be received by 23:59 Friday January 10, 2014. The chosen presenters will be notified on or before Friday, February 7, 2014.
