Pages to a PhD: Week 1-2, Term 1
Sometimes blogging can keep you honest, or in this case help you keep perspective. There's a heavy reading load here at University of West Coast (UWC), and I think I want to blog those readings. Pages to a PhD, hopefully, will help me track what I'm doing/what I've done over the course of my PhD classes. In addition, I'm hoping that it might spark some discussion about what I am (or am not) reading. So below is my first entry:

For First Class:

Intro to Musicology: Defining Musicology
"Musicology" from The New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians

Week 2:
