The Fred Fox School of Music at the University of Arizona (Tucson) is pleased to announce its third Graduate Student Music Conference, to be held February 9-10, 2018. The conference committee invites graduate students in music theory, musicology, ethnomusicology, and music education to submit proposals for papers on any aspect of music research.


The keynote speaker is Professor Suzannah Clark of Harvard University. Professor Clark specializes in Franz Schubert, the history of music theory, and medieval music. She is the author of Analyzing Schubert (Cambridge University Press, 2011) and co-editor (with Alexander Rehding) of Music Theory and Natural Order from the Renaissance to the Early Twentieth Century (Cambridge University Press, 2001). She is currently working on a book, Quirks in Tonality: Aspects in the History of Tonal Space, which focuses on major issues in the history of tonal theory.


The conference will be accompanied by a graduate student workshop, to be held on the morning of February 9. Dr. Suzannah Clark will lead the workshop, which will center on a 19th-century music theory topic to be announced at a later date.


Applications for the conference and/or the workshop should be done separately and should be sent electronically to arizona.gsmc@gmail.com no later than Friday, October 6, 2017. Paper proposals for the conference should be sent as an MS Word file (.doc or .docx).


Paper proposals should not exceed 350 words (including any footnotes) and should not include the author’s name or other identifying information. A cover email should include your name, institutional affiliation, email address, and required equipment for the proposed presentation.


The workshop application need only include your name, institutional affiliation, and the degree you are pursuing. Depending on the number of workshop applicants, participants may be selected by a random draw from the pool.
