We are excited to invite you to the 27th annual meeting of the Midwest Graduate Music Consortium, hosted at the University of Chicago on March 31-April 1, 2023. This conference will feature paper presentations, a new music concert by the University of Chicago New Music Ensemble, and a keynote address delivered by Dr. Nadine Hubbs, Professor of Music, Women’s and Gender Studies, and American Culture at the University of Michigan.

This year’s conference theme, “Unruly Resonances: Music in Cross-Disciplinary Conversation,” speaks to the imbrication of music studies with fields as wide ranging as linguistics, politics, queer theory, and mathematics. What does music have to offer these fields, and perhaps more importantly, how can an interdisciplinary approach enrich — or disrupt — the fields of (ethno)musicology, music theory, and composition?

The full call for papers, call for scores, and submission instructions can be found at the conference website, Submissions must be received by January 15, 2023. Please direct any questions or concerns to
