Musicology Workshop 2 - MCGY1020

Year - 2018

Musicology Workshop provides a forum for discussion of musicological work, and the opportunity to gain a broad perspective on the discipline. Many Musicology Workshop activities are built around the Conservatorium's fortnightly Musicology Colloquium Series lectures, presented by SCM staff and visiting national and international scholars speaking on a wide range of topics. Occasional class projects explore areas such as music criticism, controversies in recent music literature, visits to local libraries or archives, and conference attendance and reporting. Students are expected occasionally to attend other musicological activities such as the Conservatorium's About Music and Alfred Hook lecture series. During classes students also have the opportunity to present and gain feedback on their own research topics.

Classes
1 x 1hr lecture and 1 x 2hr seminar per fortnight, including attendance at Musicology Colloquium Series

Assessment
Presentation of semester paper or assigned written assessment (40%), reflective journal (40%), participation and short tasks (20%)
