So this weekend and next I’ll be at two of the big yearly meetings of the musicology societies (Society for Ethnomusicology and American Musicological Society–Society for American Music is in the Spring, and I don’t generally go to the Society for Music Theory meetings unless they’re meeting with AMS). I’ve had mixed feelings about the meetings over the years (I used to really love them, but have gone to fewer and fewer papers over the years and have felt wierd about it). This year, though, I’m really excited about it. One of my students is giving a talk at SEM, which is a first for me, I’m giving a talk at AMS (on Gil Scott-Heron), which I haven’t done in too long, and I guess the rock class I’m teaching has me excited to see what people are saying about rock right now. I’ll try to post on what I hear.
