FEBRUARY - JULY 2009
CALL FOR PAPERS
Proposals are invited from research students to participate in the AHRC funded “Connecting Research: The RSAMD Postgraduate Research Talks”. This series of twelve talks will be given by graduate students currently working within the disciplines of music, drama and related areas. Current RSAMD research students are working on traditional as well as early music, gender studies, performance practice and composition. We welcome proposals from these and related areas, including the performing and visual arts. All forms of dissemination are invited: papers, lecture-recitals and performances are welcome. Preference will be given to practice-based research wherever possible. The talks will take place between February and July 2009.
Interested participants are invited to submit an abstract (not longer than 200 words in length) and brief CV via email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. The closing date for submission of proposals to the committee is 31st January 2009.
The talks will take place at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. This research training initiative is jointly sponsored by the AHRC and the RSAMD. All selected speakers will have their travel expenses and one night’s accommodation paid. Participants will have the opportunity to present their work to a friendly and supportive audience made up of their peers as well as experts in the field. This forum will thus provide graduate researchers with the chance to present their work to a wide audience and to make connections with colleagues working in similar fields.
