Jake Cohen, graduate student at University of Washington, responds to Susan Key’s recent call for musicologists to “scale the walls” in a post which (in good Deadhead fashion) has the title: “Once in a while you get shown the light in the strangest of places if you look at it right – Thoughts on interdisciplinary conferences.”
Gina Rivera goes in search of her musicological green card.
Zoë Lang, Assistant Professor of Music History at University of South Florida, discusses the challenges of getting published as a young scholar.
As promised, Sarah Gerk offers thoughts on her recent survey of musicology job postings (January 2002 – September 2006). She also generously shares the data itself, which we here at Amusicology hope will inspire others to consider musicological trends as we look to the future of our discipline. Sarah is currently Co-Chair of the Society for American Music’s (SAM) Student Forum and a PhD student in musicology at the University of Michigan.
Hello Amusicologists! It is the end of the semester here and as you have probably noticed, our posts have trailed off somewhat. We’ve got all sorts of interesting musicological tidbits and questions all ready to go once summer officially begins. So, please check back with us soon. -ryan & drew-
