Strong Western Musicology and Theory Presence at Leading US Conferences

The Don Wright Faculty of Music made a strong showing this year at the annual meetings of the Society for Music Theory (SMT) and the American Musicological Society (AMS) – the two leading conferences in these fields. At SMT, Professor Jonathan de Souza chaired a session on embodied cognition, while postdoc Andrew Goldman presented a paper titled "Beyond the Continuum: Towards a Typology of Improvisatory Processes."

At AMS, Professor Edmund Goehring presented "Mozart in Jena: Naturphilosophie and Genius in Early Romantic Criticism.” PhD Candidate April Morris gave her first AMS paper, which was titled, "Avant-Garde Activism: Experimental Music and Vietnam War Protest in Late 1960s New York City.”
