I just sent my proposal to the person in charge of conference of the Musicological Society of Korea. A subject of the forthcoming conference is ‘music and nationalism’ and a title of my paper is “Singing nationalism: Study on Verdi’s Risorgimento opera.”
As this is my first time to submit my thesis to professional conference, I was very careful and scrupulous when I was writing my proposal. Yet I am still worrying if my wording or construction of my abstract are apposite to be the paper for the conference.
Anyway, my proposal is already out of my hands. Even if my proposal would not be chosen, I have still other options since there are some other musicological societies…and I can earn extra time to redeem and rethink my paper and write better one. So this attempt can result in good situation whether my paper would be accepted or not. Then please be positive, SeungHee.
