Music and its Media
Cambridge, MA, March 2004


Following the success of last year's "Progressions, Regressions, and Digressions"
conference, Harvard University's Graduate Music Forum announces its second annual
graduate-student music conference.  Please forward it to all graduate students in
music and related fields.

MUSIC AND ITS MEDIA: an interdisciplinary conference on music

March 5 & 6, 2004 *** Harvard University, Cambridge MA

Keynote address:
Alexander Rehding, Assistant Professor of Music, Harvard University

This conference invites graduate-student papers on music and media, with the term
"media" defined broadly, thus covering media of transmission (written or oral
traditions, pedagogy, preservation); media of perception and presentation (scores,
performances, recordings, transcriptions); multi-media works or representations of
works (in film, television, visual arts); and acoustics and the physical media of
sound.  Papers are welcome from students from all fields of musical scholarship
(including composers and performers), as well as from anthropology, media studies,
cultural studies, and related fields.

Abstracts should be 250 words or fewer and should be submitted by email by January
16, 2004.  The abstract should be included in the body of the email, as should the
submitter's name, telephone number, and institutional affiliation. Identifying
information will be removed before evaluation by the program committee; the committee
will send notifications by February 1.

Please email abstracts and inquiries to
