BeschreibungVanderbilt University's German Graduate Student Association Presents its 4th Annual Conference:
Dissonant Discourses? Finding Harmonies in Music and German Studies

Feb. 21 and 22, 2014. Nashville, TN.
Keynote Speaker: Holly Watkins, Eastman School of Music

From minnesang to Mahler and beyond, the musical tradition of the German-speaking world has been remarkable not only for its aesthetic quality, but also because of the unusual degree to which musical works have been caught up in political, literary, and philosophical discourses. These convergences go well beyond such outright considerations of music in writing and philosophy as E.T.A. Hoffmann's review of Beethoven's 5th or Adorno's dismissal of jazz. Examples of deeper and more subtle connections between music and language are found in everything from the complex use of alliteration in the Hildebrandslied to Thomas Mann's use of sonata form in Tonio Kröger. Music crosses boundaries, whether these are the spatial boundaries muddled by Turkish-German rappers or the temporal boundaries sprung by heavy metal bands interpreting Walther's courtly lyrics. Music can make the circular nature of such crossings apparent, as when a visitor to Magdeburg's line-dancing club “The Nashville Saloon” hears an American country music singer break into a yodel. An interdisciplinary approach to music and German studies can offer new metaphors and pathways of thought for contemporary discussions of literature, history, politics, media, culture, and, of course, music itself.

The German Graduate Student Association of Vanderbilt University seeks proposals for 20 minute presentations
about music and German studies. Possible topics may include:

-Music and Indeterminacy; Music and the Absolute
-Foreign Reception of German Music; German Reception of Foreign Music
-Music and Pedagogy
-Implications of Analytical Methods
-Music and Politics

Please submit a 250 word abstract to by December 2nd. Include your name, departmental affiliation, and contact information, as well as any equipment needs (technical or musical). The conference will be conducted in English, although some German papers may be included; abstracts in either language will be accepted.
