I just received the following CFP from Program Committee Co-Chairs, William Cheng and Hannah Lewis.  Looks like a great conference, especially the keynote speaker!

The Harvard Graduate Music Forum is pleased to announce that its Seventh Interdisciplinary Graduate Student Conference on the theme of Song and Dance will take place at Harvard University on *Saturday, February 27, 2010*.  We invite graduate students across all disciplines to submit proposals and to interpret this theme broadly and creatively. Historical, theoretical, analytical, ethnographical, and other critical approaches that deal with any aspect of song and/or dance are welcome.

Possible topics include:

–          Voices and bodies
–          Sound and movement
–          Sense, essence, and presence
–          Lyric flight
–          Staging sex and desire
–          Dance and disability
–          Performing gender and sexuality
–          Gesture and rhythm
–          Ritual
–          Transmission and choreography
–          Songs without words
–          Ventriloquism

*Abstracts of no more than 250 words should be submitted by Friday, January 8, 2010 (5:00PM EST) to gmfconference [at] gmail.com.*  Since proposals will be reviewed name-blind, please ensure that your abstract does not contain your name or academic affiliation.  Attach your abstract as a word document and include your name and contact information in the body of your email. *Speakers will be notified by January 20, 2009.*

We are honored to announce that the keynote lecture will be delivered by *Dr. Tomie Hahn*, Associate Professor of Performance Ethnology in the Arts Department at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute.  Dr. Hahn received her Ph.D. in ethnomusicology from Wesleyan University, her M.A. in urban ethnomusicology from New York University, and her B.S. in performance and art history from Indiana University (Bloomington campus).  She holds the professional stage name Samie Tachibana and is a teacher and performer of shakuhachi (Japanese bamboo flute) and nihon buyo (Japanese traditional dance).  Her ethnography Sensational Knowledge-Embodying Culture through Japanese Dance (Wesleyan University Press) was the 2008 recipient of the Society for Ethnomusicology’s Alan P. Merriam Prize, which recognizes the most distinguished published English-language monograph in the field of ethnomusicology.  For more information about Dr. Hahn, visit http://www.arts.rpi.edu/tomie/.
