The 5th Symposium for LGBTQ Studies and Music Education

Monday, June 24, 2024–Wednesday, June 26, 2024
1040 W Harrison St, Chicago, IL 60607

Call for Proposals:
In 2010, 2012, 2016, and 2021, LGBTQ Studies and Music Education Symposia I, II, III, & IV brought together students, teachers, college faculty, and researchers to discuss relevant research, theory, and practice from an LGBTQ perspective (for contextual information, visit the QMUE 4 website).

The purpose of these ongoing symposia is to encourage, promote, and disseminate discourse regarding the intersections of LGBTQ topics and music education. Held during Chicago Pride, we seek to further explore in this fifth symposium how Queer interests operate within music education in terms of research, curriculum, teacher preparation, and the musical lives and careers of LGBTQ music students and teachers.

General Registration: $225 (banquet dinner included)
Student Registration: $65 (banquet dinner included)
