OBERTO, the opera research unit at Oxford Brookes University, is delighted to announce its second dedicated postgraduate conference, aimed at providing students with a platform for presenting their research.
We invite proposals from both UK-based and international speakers with an interest in opera. 20-minute presentations on all facets of opera studies are welcome, including but not limited to the following areas:
- opera production, performance and reception
- opera and politics
- opera and gender
- opera and identity
- iconography and visual representation of opera
- musical analysis
The day is designed to be supportive and inclusive, with opportunities for students to meet fellow researchers. Proposals from both Master’s and Doctoral students are encouraged.
There will also be a roundtable discussion concerning academia and public engagement, with advice for postgraduate students on building a public profile, and a summary of the research opportunities and events offered by OBERTO.
Abstracts of no more than 250 words should be sent by email to firstname.lastname@example.org in Word document format. Please include your name, email address, institutional affiliation (if applicable), and details of any audio-visual requirements.
