The UCLA Center for Musical Humanities is accepting proposals for events that combine scholarship and musical performance, to take place on the UCLA campus during academic year of 2019-2020.
The mission of the Center is to support interdisciplinary study of music after 1800 by bringing together scholars and performers from the UCLA Herb Alpert School of Music with faculty and students from the humanities and other disciplines, both at UCLA and beyond. Events supported by the Center for Musical Humanities must include a collaborative component between scholarship and live musical performance. Proposals that include plans for student involvement, as scholars and performers, are especially encouraged. (See below for descriptions of past events that meet these expectations.)
For selected proposed events, the Center will assist in coordinating the program and in covering hotel, travel, venue, and catering expenses, up to $5000 per event, which may be combined with additional funds from other sources. Further information about budgeting will be provided for approved proposals.
Proposals should include a 2-page description of the event and a proposed budget, including known or probable sources for funding. The description should include:
- A summary of the events, including its various components, which explains how performance and scholarship will be included and coordinated;
- Planned paper topics and/or a call for papers, with brief biographies of specific speakers and performers who will be invited to participate;
- Intended venues and audiences for the program;
- Plans for involving UCLA faculty and students.
Proposals Due May 15, 2019
