Graduate Student Music Conference
February 28-29, 2020
University of Arizona – Tucson, AZ 

This conference welcomes graduate students in music theory, musicology,
ethnomusicology, music education, music theatre, film/media studies, and
related fields to submit proposals for papers on any aspect of music

This year’s guest speaker is Dr. Michael Buchler, Professor of Music Theory
at the Florida State University College of Music. Dr. Buchler’s keynote
address for the conference is titled “A New Deal for the Broadway Stage:
Musical Depictions of Labor and Trade Unionism during the Depression.” In
addition to the keynote address, Dr. Buchler’s forthcoming article
“Ornamentation as Gesture in Atonal Music” will serve as the springboard
for his interactive workshop titled “Why can’t we have passing tones (and
other familiar “tonal” categories) in atonal music?”

Paper proposals should include a paper title and abstract of 350 words or
fewer (including any footnotes) and should not include the author’s name or
other identifying information. The proposals should be sent as an MS Word
or PDF file. A cover email should include your name, institutional
affiliation, degree program, email address, and required equipment for the
proposed presentation (piano, projector, audio, etc.). Papers should last
20 minutes and will be followed by a 10-minute Q&A discussion. Potential
presenters are also welcome to use alternative forms of presenting (in
which case, the proposal should be accompanied by a separate document
explaining the planned form of presentation).

Applications for the conference and/or the workshop should be done
separately and should be sent electronically to arizona.gsmc -at-
no later than Friday, November 15, 2019.

The workshop application only needs to include your name, institutional
affiliation, and the degree you are pursuing. Depending on the number of
workshop applicants, participants may be selected randomly.
