4th ISPME Graduate Student Pre-conference

“On Writing Philosophy in Music Education”

Monday, June 5 - Wednesday, June 7, 2017


The pre-conference is a free coursework-event open to all music education graduate students and early career academic professionals who are interested in studying philosophy and music education, advancing professionally as researchers and thinkers, and writing and publishing work that is philosophic in nature. The preconference starts in the afternoon/evening the 5th of June, 2017, and includes seminars focusing on the participants' texts, speeches with interactive discussions given led by senior researchers (Randall Allsup, Cathy Benedict, Eva Georgii-Hemming, Cecilia Ferm-Almqvist, Panagiotis (Panos) A. Kanellopoulos, Christian Rolle & Patrick Schmidt) and individual/group supervising, as well as informal gatherings. As a preparation, participants have been asked to write philosophical texts (about 3000 words) connected to their PhD-work. These texts have been sent to everyone in the group in advance, so that participants can read each other’s texts and give response in advance, thus creating a rich context for dialogue in the course of the meetings.
