*Note conference is planned to be held in a hybrid format (further details pending)
Midwest Music Research Collective (MMRC) is pleased to announce our 4th annual conference held conjunctly with Musicians for an Anti-Racist College (MARC). A keynote address will be given by Dr. Williams on the subject of the “Myth of the Genius Composer.”
MMRC would like to extend an invitation to graduate students from any discipline whose research deals with music to submit proposals for paper presentations.
MMRC and KUMARC want to uplift topics from the margins of music. This can take the form of researchers that are often marginalized within their field, research on topics that are outside of the canon, or both. This year, we would like to focus on research pertaining to composers, compositions, performance practice, and/or pedagogical practices.
