Conference: Character, Caricature, Characterization
Dates: October 2-3, 2020
Location: Virtual (Zoom)

The Music Graduate Student Association at Case Western Reserve University, in association with the Department of Music and the Baker-Nord Center for the Humanities, is pleased to announce an upcoming virtual graduate student conference, to be held on October 2-3, 2020. Entitled “Character, Caricature, Characterization,” this conference brings together scholars, performers, and educators who engage with the various meanings and incarnations of “characters” across music scholarship and practice. Our speakers will explore topics including musical alter egos, cinematic characters, representations of gender and sexuality, gestures in sacred music, mental illness, musical theater characters, and several others.

In addition to paper sessions and lecture-recitals, the conference will feature keynote presentations by Dr. Kyra Gaunt (University at Albany) and Dr. Martha Feldman (University of Chicago).
