Columbia Music Scholarship Conference 2021: Mediums and Media of Public Musicology

Saturday, April 17, 2021 - 10:15am to Sunday, April 18, 2021 - 5:55pm

The annual Columbia Music Scholarship Conference will be held via Zoom on April 17, 2021. We are pleased to announce that our panel of keynote speakers will include Jordannah Elizabeth, Estelle Caswell, Anne Midgette, and Seth Cluett.

This conference aims to challenge the boundaries of traditional academic scholarship by engaging critically with different mediums and media: YouTube videos, podcasts, digital humanities projects, as well as public-facing writing (reviews, program notes, etc.). Through presentation, discussion, and workshops, we will rethink the way musicological content is presented, and ask, in a time when pedagogy is increasingly moving online, how these means can help music scholars not only teach, but also reach a broader audience.

Information on speakers and topics of discussion are available on the conference webpage, found here

Registration is free and open to the public. Please register here. Several days before the conference, registrants will receive a Zoom link for day-of event access.
