Brief Conference Report

We just got finished with our grad student music conference. There's a concert tonight, and then it's all over. My paper was a hit. But the big revelation of the conference was this:

There is only one thing funnier than watching a grad student try to give a paper exploring the narrative function of music in Deep Throat, and that is hearing this paper immediately upon the heels of a serious paper exploring women's agency and historical voice in Poulenc's Dialogues of the Carmelites.

I never doubted for a second that your paper would completely blow them away. :-)

But still, it is a very pleasant feeling to see everyone so interested and coming up to chat with you about it afterwards. Even if you were pretty sure going into it that the paper was a good one. Very few music people had seen that paper before, and it was the first work I've shared with my fellow students at this school, so it did feel somewhat like unveiling something brand-new.

One of the lovely things about this particular conference is that the only theme is "grad student work." So you can get papers about anything, in any order.
