The Philosophy SRIG of NAfME is excited to announce a pre-conference for graduate students interested in discussing aspects of writing and publishing philosophy in the field of music education. Participants need not have prior formal experience writing philosophy.

These lecture-workshops will provide opportunities to discuss topics including idea generation, the writing process, and publishing. Lectures include:

If those who register exceed 20, a selection of participants will be chosen based on equal representation of schools, amount of time left in doctoral studies, and qualifications based on personal statement.
