New Zealand Musicological Society



This year's New Zealand Musicological Society conference will be hosted by the University of Waikato Music Department from 15-17 November 2008.

Keynote speaker will be Dr Philip Norman, composer and author of the book Douglas Lilburn, his life and music (Canterbury University Press 2006), which won the prize for biography in the Montana Book Awards for 2007.

Papers should last no more than 20 minutes, a further 10 minutes being allowed for questions. Standard audio-visual equipment will be available.

In this conference there will be a special, but not exclusive, focus on the life and work of Douglas Lilburn. Papers dealing with any aspect of Lilburn are invited. Topics need not be confined to specifics of his compositional work but might range widely across discipline areas, including links with other art forms and the broader cultural milieus Lilburn worked in during his lifetime.

Papers on musical topics other than Lilburn are also warmly welcomed.

Contributions from students are very welcome. Students coming from outside Hamilton are eligible for grants to assist with travel costs. Please contact Marion Poole for further details (mc.poole@iprolink.co.nz).
Please send the title of your paper and an abstract of approximately 200 words to Martin Lodge (mlodge@waikato.ac.nz) no later than 31 August 2008.
