Musicology Workshop 1 (MCGY1019)


Musicology Workshop provides a forum for discussion of musicological work, and gives students the opportunity to present their work in a seminar format and to discuss issues and methodology with the whole group, gaining practice in presentation and feedback. It also provides a broadening of students' experience in the field through contact with the work of others including that of staff, postgraduate students, and visiting speakers when available. Occasional class projects are held in which the whole group focuses on a project such as the discussion of a recent conference or performances, musicological issues or activities, or recent literature. Workshop classes may occasionally be held at other locations for attendance of special lectures or viewing of specialist collections. Students are expected occasionally to attend other musicological activities at the Conservatorium held at different times such as Musicology Research Seminars, the Musicology Colloquium Series and the Alfred Hook Lecture Series.
