Graduate Student Conference

I’m a (founding) member of the Boston University Music Society, a group for the musicology, ethnomusicology, and music theory students at BU. I’m going to shamelessly plug our upcoming graduate student conference. 

Our keynote speaker is Dr. Kiri Miller from Brown University. Her talk is tentatively titled “Virtual Virtuosity and Mediated Musicality: Why Guitar Hero Players Don’t Just Play Real Guitars.”  We have six student papers being presented that day that represent the wide and varied research interest of graduate students today. I served on the program committee and I am quite excited by both the submissions we had and the choices we made. You can see the program and read the abstracts here.

So if you’re in Boston on March 28, stop by. We are still making arrangements, but it looks like we’ll be in room B12 of the College of Arts and Sciences building, 725 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston. Keep checking our website for information or email us at bums _at_ bu.edu.
