The Garth Institute for Music Research and Performance will be hosting a seminar – Ethnicity, Femininity, and the History of Music – at the University of Michigan Hatcher Library Gallery September 28, 2013, from 9:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. This event is dedicated to works-in-progress that focus on underrepresented groups (ethnic groups, women) who have made significant contributions to classical music, folk-classical music, and pedagogy.

Those interested must submit a proposal of no more than 300 words in Word format (.doc) accompanied by a CV of no more than 3 pages. No previously published work will be accepted as the event is designed to provide a forum for productive and supportive discussion of works-in-progress. All proposals are due by July 15, 2013. Applicants will be notified by email no later than July 31, 2013 whether their proposals have been accepted for presentation. Send all proposals and expressions of interest to info@garthinstitute.org. Accepted participants will be required to submit a paper as a PDF file of no more than 7,000 words by September 7, 2013 to the above email address. Papers will be pre-circulated and read by all participants. Please note that all travel expenses are the responsibility of the participant. We encourage emerging and junior scholars, and untenured faculty to apply.

The Garth Institute for Music Research and Performance is a new independent nonprofit organization that visualizes a society in which music and music education reflects cultural diversity. Dedicated to this vision, our mission is to promote the contributions of underrepresented groups in classical music through lectures, seminars, conferences, and performances while becoming part of a network that strives to increase opportunities for culturally diverse scholars and musicians.
