Music Theory Midwest 2017 Conference Information
Twenty-Eighth Annual Conference, University of Iowa, Iowa City, IA, May 19–20
Music Theory Midwest will hold its twenty-eighth conference on May 19 and 20, 2017 at the University of Iowa in Iowa City.
This year's keynote address will be given by Nolan and is entitled "Anton Webern's Late Music in the Context of Postmodern Modernism." Catherine Nolan is Associate Dean (Graduate Studies) in music at the Don Wright Faculty of Music at the University of Western Ontario. Her research interests focus on theoretical, analytical, and critical issues surrounding modernist music of the twentieth century, particularly the late music of Anton Webern, Webern's creative partnership with poet (and painter) Hildegard Jone, and on the history and timeless expression of mathematical models in music theory. Her publications have appeared in Journal of Music Theory, Music Theory Spectrum, Music Theory Online, Journal of Mathematics and Music, and in edited collections, including The Cambridge History of Western Music Theory, The Princeton Companion to Mathematics. Her essay on Canada's first serial composer, John Weinzweig, appeared in Weinzweig: Essays on His Life and Music.
