Research Seminar in Systematic Musicology

This series of research presentations was discontinued in 2023 with Richard Parncutt's retirement as Professor of Systematic Musicology at the University of Graz.

Program: see below. 

Time: Tuesdays at 5:30 pm. Speakers are kindly asked to arrive or connect at 5:15 pm and talk for 40 minutes (questions last for 20 minutes).

Place: All talks (both "live" and "virtual") will be shown in Mozartgasse 3, HS23.02. This seminar room is about 400m from the main building of Uni Graz and 800m from the Centre for Systematic Musicology. From the main railway station (Graz Hauptbahnhof), take bus 58 and get off at Mozartgasse.

Speakers: International and local researchers and graduate students in systematic musicology (mainly music psychology) present their current projects.

Audience: The seminar is open to the public and all students in all disciplines are welcome. The seminar is mainly attended by students and researchers of systematic musicology (music psychology), including members of the Centre for Systematic Musicology. For students in Graz, the seminar corresponds to "Konversatorium" in the BA/MA Musikologie curriculum, and the talks are often relevant for the course "Musikwissenschaft aktuell".

Virtual participation: To get a zoom link for a specific talk, contact jonas.boehm at uni-graz.at. Students in “Musikwissenschaft aktuell” must attend in person; if you cannot attend and have a good reason, contact parncutt at uni-graz.at.

Guidelines for speakers: If you would like to give a talk, please send us a 200-word abstract and a short CV. All talks are in English. If your talk is virtual, please use a headset with a built-in microphone to reduce reverberation and background noise. If the talk is live, keep the evening free. When talking, consider undergraduate listeners in the audience; for example, explain the broad aims and context of your research, and provide tangible examples. With your agreement, your talk may be recorded and published, so please avoid copyright video or audio materials and provide legible references to sources. We will send you a link and a contact phone number by email a week before the talk (if you do not receive this email, please contact us immediately). Please include your contact phone number in your reply. If you are outside central Europe, please check the time difference on the exact date of your talk.
