We invite graduate students currently enrolled in a master's or doctoral program to submit paper abstracts on any topic in the fields of musicology, music theory, and ethnomusicology. Interdisciplinary approaches are particularly encouraged. Papers will be 20 minutes in length, followed by a question and answer period. All papers accepted for presentation will be eligible for the conference paper award.
