Annual Music Graduate Exchange Conference for the East and South East of England

Saturday 21st June 2008
Faculty of Music
University of Oxford
St Aldate’s
Oxford OX1 1DB

All postgraduate students in music are warmly invited to take part in the
AHRC-funded Graduate Exchange Conference for the East and South East of England
2008. This year, the conference is hosted by the University of Oxford and is an
ideal forum for graduate students to present research and to exchange ideas in
an informal setting. Proposals for 20-minute papers are welcome from all
graduate students in all areas of music.

To encourage discussion and debate, we would like to commission 10-minute
responses to individual papers. If you would like to be a respondent, please
submit a brief outline of your research interests before the abstract deadline.
We would particularly encourage students to be respondents who do not feel ready
to present their own work but who would nevertheless like to participate
actively in the conference.

Proposals for themed sessions including two or three papers are also welcome.
Please provide a brief description of the theme with the abstracts.

The day will end with a panel discussion chaired by Professor Eric Clarke
(Oxford) discussing ‘How does musicology deal with the experience of music?’

Please email submissions, stating your name, email address and institutional
affiliation and specifying any audio-visual requirements, to Simon Desbruslais
(simon.desbruslais@chch.ox.ac.uk) no later than Sunday 27th April 2008.
Abstracts should not exceed 300 words. Please indicate whether you are happy for
someone to write a response to your paper (in which case you will need to have
completed it at least two weeks before the conference). Please also state
whether you would be willing to chair a session on the day.

Registration is free and we hope to contribute towards speakers’ travel expenses.

For further information, please contact Joanna Bullivant
(joanna.bullivant@music.ox.ac.uk).
