The Music Graduate Student Organization at the University of Pittsburgh is pleased to announce its first annual conference, to be held on Saturday, February 4, 2017 at the University of Pittsburgh’s main campus. The topic of institutional power has come up in recent conversations surrounding multiple professional societies for music scholarship. As a means of participating in these conversations and specifically centering students’ voices, the theme for the inaugural Pitt Grad Student Conference is “Music and Institutional Power.” Graduate students in any sub-discipline of music scholarship are invited to submit proposals for 20-minute paper presentations OR lecture/recitals. The keynote speaker for this year’s conference is Stephan Pennington, Assistant Professor of Music at Tufts University.
The University of Pittsburgh invites all Graduate students currently enrolled at the University level within the United States, Mexico, and Canada to submit works for lecture/performance. (University of Pittsburgh students are not eligible). The deadline for submitting proposals for papers, lectures, and performances is November 14. Find out more about the conference.
