    The Music Graduate Students’ Society of McGill University is excited to welcome Dr. James Currie from the University at Buffalo, SUNY, as the keynote speaker for its 2014 Music Graduate Symposium. Dr. Currie’s research centers on interpreting the intersections between music, philosophy, history and politics. His acclaimed book, Music and the Politics of Negation (IU Press, 2012), offers a provocative critique of postmodern ideologies within music scholarship and the academy more broadly. Currie is also a renowned vocalist, improviser, and poet.

Papers, lecture recitals, music/art installations, posters, and special sessions of 2-4 panelists are all encouraged. Please indicate in the body of your email which format(s) would suit your presentation. Special session proposals must include a separate 300-word proposal for the session as a whole in addition to individual proposals for each panelist.
    Both abstracts and presentations may be in either English or French. All submissions must be received by Wednesday January 15, 2014.
