Annual Graduate Symposium

The Society of Graduate Students in Music at Western University held its annual Graduate Symposium on Music (WUGSOM), August 20th – 21st, 2021. This year the keynote speaker was Dr. Philip Ewell (Hunter College of the City University of New York)

In our 22nd consecutive year of WUGSOM, and our second year online, we were thrilled to continue the tradition of showcasing excellent graduate student research on music from a variety of disciplines. After last year’s smaller, more intimate conference, it was exciting to open the conference back up to the broader academic community, and we were honoured to receive a record number of submissions from students at institutions across the United States and Canada.
