Perspectives on Performance: Stony Brook Graduate Music Symposium

CFP: Perspectives on Performance: Stony Brook Graduate Music Symposium

The Stony Brook Music Department announces its inaugural Graduate Music Symposium, to be held February 11-12, 2011. We welcome graduate students from all disciplines to submit paper or lecture-recital proposals on various aspects of musical performance. The symposium will feature a keynote address by Ellen Rosand (Yale), as well as a performance of Handel’s Acis and Galatea by Stony Brook’s award-winning Baroque Ensemble. Suggested topics for our symposium include:

  • Performers and their publics
  • Pedagogy and performance practice
  • Theorizing performance
  • Ethnographies of performances and performers
  • Performing as embodied knowledge
  • Identity politics and performance
  • Performers and composers
  • Liveness and mediation

We invite submissions of 250-word abstracts for 20-minute papers or 40-minute lecture recitals. Please submit proposals to by Friday, December 10. Stony Brook is accessible via MacArthur Airport, the Long Island Rail Road, and the Bridgeport/Port Jefferson ferry. Housing with Stony Brook graduate students will be available for presenters staying overnight. For more information, please visit
