Annual Graduate Symposium

The Society of Graduate Students in Music at Western University is pleased to announce our 24th annual Graduate Symposium on August 25-26, 2023. We are excited to welcome Dr. Joanna Bosse (Carnegie Mellon University) as our keynote speaker! 

Music and Interdisciplinarity: What Connects Us Makes Us Stronger - Aug 25-26, 2023

For this year’s conference, we wanted to embrace interdisciplinarity and celebrate what it often evokes: interconnectedness, cooperation, and collaboration. Our presenters will illustrate how interdisciplinary thinking can enhance the philosophies and methodologies of research projects. We are happy to welcome researchers from a wide variety of schools, programs, and fields of study. Our keynote speaker, Dr. Joanna Bosse, is an exceptionally interdisciplinary scholar who has expertise and interests in music, ethnomusicology, dance and movement, health and well-being, music cognition, emotion, and the relationships between them.

The conference will be virtual this year to best accommodate our attendees and speakers. There is no cost for you to attend.
