Virginia Whealton – Fall 2016


The GPSG award helped me travel to Vancouver, Canada, to present at the American Musicological Society Music and Disability Study Group’s recent research workshop (co-hosted with the Society for Music Theory’s Music and Disability Interest Group). The response to my paper was encouraging and enthusiastic–the perfect thing for a PhD candidate going on the job market! This was the first work I have presented on music and disability, and I look forward to doing further research in this field. I had the opportunity to reconnect with many colleagues throughout the conference, and I enjoyed meeting and talking with new scholars as well.
