dc.description.abstract Most master's programs in music include a required seminar in music research that must broadly introduce a variety of investigatory areas. One such area is the scholarly study of musical iconography, visual works which depict or reference music-making. Students are not generally aware of this interdisciplinary field (which requires dual expertise in music history and art history) and its range of topical approaches; the standard handbooks on music research usually give it only two or three pages. My music research seminar includes a 30-minute illustrated presentation on the aims, tools and resources of musical iconography, with additional class discussion of one or two sample articles by scholars in this field and inspection of selected antiquarian prints in the Special Collections department. en_US
