SMA Summer School: Call for Applicants

Keele University

6-7 July 2015 – preceding Keele Music Analysis Conference (8-10 July 2015)

Guest tutors:

Professor Amanda Bayley (Bath Spa)

Professor. James Hepokoski (Yale)

Professor David Neumeyer (Texas)

Building on the great success of its previous Summer Schools, the Society for Music Analysis is organising another summer school at Keele University, 6-7 July 2015. The residential course will be open to both national and international applicants, and will provide a unique forum for advanced study in theory and analysis in the UK. It will segue into the Keele Music Analysis Conference (KeeleMAC, 8-10 July2015), convened by Dr Nicholas Reyland (Keele), to which applicants are warmly invited to submit paper proposals.

Designed as an intensive programme run in small seminar and tutorial groups, the 2015 Summer School will be taught by international experts in performance studies, sonata theory and screen music – the three topics that will be the focus of its seminars and tutorials.

Attendance will be capped at c. 20 students. To be considered for a place, please submit a two-page CV including details of your academic qualifications and publications (if any), plus a short statement (up to 250 words) concerning your current work and how a place on the Summer School would assist it, to information@sma.ac.uk by 5 January 2015. Documents should be sent in Word or .pdf format. The Summer School is open to current masters and doctoral students, and to scholars within two years of completing a doctorate. Applicants will be informed of their proposal’s outcome by 9 February 2015.

The Editorial Board of Music Analysis has provided a subvention that will offer successful music students free accommodation and meals at the Summer School: participants need only cover the cost of their travel to Keele. If they intend to stay for KeeleMAC, Summer School participants will have to register and pay for the conference (student rate) separately.

Feedback on previous SMA Summer Schools:

‘Classes were intensive and interactive, taking the form of small seminar groups rather than lectures, and encouraged an equal exchange of ideas, transcending the usual tutor/student hierarchy. The SMA merits our gratitude and praise for spearheading such a valuable initiative, and one which is set to evolve and (one hopes) to become a permanent fixture in its calendar of events.’ (Dr Anne Hyland, Manchester University).

Review I

By Helen Thomas

The SMA’s International Summer School aims to provide postgraduate participants with an advanced analytical toolkit for use in their research and teaching, and a forum for the exchange of ideas at an international level. It was launched last year in collaboration with the IMR and Wiley-Blackwell, the publishers of Music Analysis. Good news travels fast and this year 32 students from North America, Europe, the Middle-East, Asia and Australasia gathered in Durham for an intensive week of seminars and plenary sessions culminating in a symposium on ‘New Perspectives on Musical Form’. » Read more: 2 Reviews: Music Analysis Summer School 2010
