International Postgraduate Music Conference at Keele
On 18-19 April, the Research Institute for the Humanities and Music hosted the Theory and Analysis Graduate Symposium, a prestigious annual conference held by the Society for Music Analysis, one of the UK’s most significant musicology societies. The symposium, organised by Dr. Nicholas Reyland and Becky Thumpston, featured papers by speakers from throughout the UK, as well as Harvard University and the Chinese University of Hong Kong. A thought-provoking keynote was given by the eminent film and popular music theorist Prof. Philip Tagg, and the symposium ended in a workshop (with contributions from Prof. Barbara Kelly and Dr Alastair Williams) exploring writing and presenting music analysis for different audiences.
