DURHAM UNIVERSITY, UK
13 - 15 JULY 2009
Building on the success of their jointly sponsored Research Training Roadshows, the SMA, in collaboration with the IMR and the publishers of Music Analysis, Wiley-Blackwell, will inaugurate a biennial summer school in music analysis at the University of Durham, 13-15 July 2009. The residential course will be open to international applicants and will provide a unique
forum for advanced study in theory and analysis in the UK.
Designed as an intensive programme run in small seminar groups, the summer school will feature three UK tutors from different institutions (William Drabkin, Julian Horton and Michael Spitzer) and a Wiley-Blackwell Fellow from the United States, the eminent theorist Richard Cohn (Yale University). Seminars will be given on Neo-Riemannian harmony, Schenker, the new
Formenlehre and semiotics. The Editorial Board of Music Analysis has provided a subvention that will offer up to twenty-five postgraduate students in music free accommodation and meals: participants need only cover the cost of their travel to Durham.
More details about the summer school, including a full programme and registration form, may be found at the website: http://www.dur.ac.uk/analysis.school/
The summer school is supported by the Society for Music Analysis, Durham University, Wiley-Blackwell, the Society for Music Theory and the Institute of Musical Research.
