Announcing the 18th Annual Pacific Northwest Music Graduate Students
January 11-12, 2008
University of Washington, Seattle, WA

Keynote speaker: Cristle Collins Judd, Bowdoin College

Graduate students from around the country are invited to submit
proposals for this annual regional conference, hosted alternatively by
the University of Washington, University of Victoria, and University of
British Columbia. We welcome a wide array of interdisciplinary topics,
including, but not limited to: musicology, theory and analysis,
ethnomusicology, composition, popular music, performance, philosophy and
aesthetics, music education, music cognition, music criticism, etc.
Non-traditional approaches, such as lecture-recitals or
cross-disciplinary studies from non-music specialists, are certainly
encouraged. Panel discussions will also be considered.

The conference will include a presentation by Cristle Collins Judd,
noted music theorist and musicologist, in conjunction with the
University of Washington’s Music Theory Colloquium Series.

Please submit abstracts of no more than 250 words by November 20, 2007.
Accepted presenters will be notified by December 10. Presentation length
should be 20-25 minutes for papers, 40-45 minutes for lecture-recitals,
followed by a brief question and answer session.
