National Graduate Conference for Ethnomusicology
NATIONAL GRADUATE CONFERENCE FOR ETHNOMUSICOLOGY:
New Directions in Music Studies
University of Cambridge, 7-9 July 2006
You are warmly invited to participate in the first ever national graduate student conference for ethnomusicology in the UK. This three-day residential conference will be held at the University of Cambridge Music Faculty, co-sponsored by CRASSH and supported by the British Forum for Ethnomusicology. It will provide an unprecedented forum in the UK for graduate students in ethnomusicology to meet, discuss, and network with graduates from other disciplines interested in the relationship between music and culture. We aim to establish a productive and friendly environment for graduate students in all areas of music research and performance with an interest in ethnomusicology.
We are interested in individual papers and organised panels that explore new and interdisciplinary ways of doing music research, and how methodologies or theories from disciplines beyond music/ethnomusicology can be applied to the study of the world's musical cultures. We are also keen to explore new methods and formats of presenting research, such as film, lecture-demonstrations, multimedia, the integration of performance and spoken discourse, and so on. Organised panels that involve conversation between researchers from different disciplines, or researchers and performers, will be particularly welcome. Sample ideas for individual presentations and sessions include, but are not restricted to:
If you have a particularly exciting piece of research, or a difficult
research problem you want to discuss in an open forum, these are also eligible
Proposals for papers, presentations, panels and sessions are open to all graduate students working on music and culture, broadly defined, regardless of discipline. We particularly welcome graduate students who are working on ethnomusicology-related topics, whether or not they consider themselves "ethnomusicologists". We want to inspire interdisciplinary approaches and collaboration, and research on any of the world's music is welcome. Our definition of "graduate" includes Masters students, PhD students, and students on postgraduate diploma courses.
Researchers who are no longer students are most welcome to attend the conference and to chair organised panels. However, the paper proposals, including those that are part of organised panels, will be restricted to graduate students only.
The deadline for abstracts is 10 January 2006. Please send your abstracts (max. 300 words) by email to Dr Katherine Brown, Corpus Christi College, Cambridge email@example.com.

Music Analysis and Teaching
Society for Music Analysis/PALATINE Spring Study Day
Saturday, 25 March 2006, 10.00 - 5.30
Call for Papers
This meeting will provide a forum for discussion about the position and role of analysis within schools (particularly at A-level), colleges and university music departments. It will address issues affecting the design and implementation of analysis teaching, and concerning staff and student development. Central to these matters are the subject knowledge and skills that graduates possess (or lack) when training as secondary school music teachers. To this end the day will examine the aims and curricula of undergraduate music degrees and those of teacher education programmes. The meeting will seek to increase dialogue between secondary and tertiary level educators, with a view to deepening understanding and forging closer links.
The day will conclude with a plenary session; panellists will include Dr Hugh Benham (Chair of Examiners, GCE Music (EdExcel)), Dr Richard McGregor (St. Martin's College), Dr Stephanie Pitts (University of Sheffield, editor of BJME), and Dr Michael Russ (University of Huddersfield). The day has been sponsored by the British Journal of Music Education.
The organizers will consider proposals for papers on any appropriate topic. Your proposed paper should be of not more than 20 minutes. Please send your proposal to:
Edward Venn, Music Department, Lancaster University, Lancaster, LA1 4YW, UK or, preferably, to email@example.com, bearing in mind the following

I am pleased to announce the publication of the new issue of the Zeitschrift der Gesellschaft f�r Musiktheorie (ZGMTH volume 2005/2), which is now accessible on the ZGMTH's website:
The issue includes summaries in English and German on various sub-disciplines of North American and German music theory. The purpose of these summaries is (1) to provide a brief overview over the major areas of music-theoretical research with bibliographies for quick reference, and (2) to enable theorists from both countries to familiarize themselves with the other country's kinds of music theory. In the future, we are planning to expand the project to include other countries by establishing a permanent website with summaries by music theorists of all participating countries.
The editor Oliver Schwab-Felisch and I would like to thank especially Harald Krebs, whose efforts and support made this summary project possible. Our thanks go also to the American authors (William E. Caplin, Edward Gollin, Edward D. Latham, Justin London, Henry Martin and Jocelyn Neal) and the German authors (Patrick Boenke, Christoph Neidh�fer, Hartmut Fladt, Ulrich Kaiser, Clemens K�hn, Gesine Schr�der, Oliver Schwab-Felisch, and Sigrun Heinzelmann).
American readers might also be interested in the report by the GMTH's president Stefan Rohringer on the first German Schenkerian Symposium and workshops with Carl Schachter and Frank Samarotto in June 2004 by the GMTH's president Stefan Rohringer.
The fall/winter issue (2005/3) will feature additional summaries and contributions on American music theory by David Carson Berry and others.

OPENS COMPETITION FOR DIGITAL INNOVATION FELLOWSHIP PROGRAM
The American Council of Learned Societies (ACLS) is pleased to announce its new Digital Innovation Fellowship program, in support of digitally based research projects in the humanities and humanistic social sciences. These fellowships, created with the generous help of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, are intended to support an academic year dedicated to work on a major scholarly project of a digital character that advances humanistic studies and best exemplifies the integration of such research with use of computing, networking, and other information technology-based tools. The online application for the fellowship program is located at http://ofa.acls.org; applications must be completed by November 10, 2005 (decisions to be announced in late March 2006).
This is the first national fellowship program to recognize and reward humanistic scholarship in the digital sphere, and to help establish standards for judging the quality, innovation, and utility of such research. Many scholars have been working in the humanities for years with such tools as digital research archives, new media representations of extant data, and innovative databases-and now the ACLS sees an important opportunity to start identifying and providing incentive for distinctive work, on a national basis. "Information technology can be the means for scholars to answer new and old questions that have so far resisted our curiosity and our effort. This program will support a rising generation of scholars in making exactly that kind of progress," says James O'Donnell, provost of Georgetown University, Chair of the ACLS Executive Committee of Delegates, and author of Avatars of the Word: From Papyrus to Cyberspace (1998).
Up to five Digital Innovation Fellowships will be awarded in this competition year, for tenure beginning in 2006-2007. As this program aims to provide the means for pursuing digitally-based scholarly projects, the fellowship includes a stipend of up to $55,000 to allow an academic year's leave from teaching, as well as project funds of up to $25,000 for purposes such as access to tools and personnel for digital production, collaborative work with other scholars and with humanities or computing research centers, and the dissemination and preservation of projects.
The ACLS criteria for judging applications include the project's intellectual ambitions and technological underpinnings, likely contribution as a digital scholarly work to humanistic study, satisfaction of technical requirements for a successful research project, degree and significance of preliminary work; potential for promoting teamwork and collaboration (where appropriate), and articulation with local infrastructure at the applicant's home institution.
Applicants must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States as of the application deadline date and must hold a Ph.D. degree conferred prior to the application deadline. However, established scholars who can demonstrate the equivalent of the Ph.D. in publications and professional experience may also qualify.
Applications for the 2005-06 ACLS Digital Innovation Fellowship Program
Deadline: November 10, 2005
