Call for Papers for the Fifth International Symposium on the 
Philosophy of Music Education


Submissions are invited for the Fifth International Symposium on the
Philosophy of Music Education to be held at Lake Forest College, Lake
Forest, Illinois, U.S.A., June 4-7, 2003. Participants can expect to enjoy
stimulating conversation in a relaxed environment and the rich cultural
milieu in nearby Chicago and the Ravinia Festival. This symposium provides
an important opportunity for philosophers, thought leaders, teachers,
performers, composers, and others interested in reflecting on issues in
music education to rethink music and music education from an international
perspective.

Papers should be in English, take about thirty minutes to present, and
will be invited for publication in the Philosophy of Music Education
Review.  Submit three hard copies of the full text for blind review with
author name and affiliation on a separate title page. Authors should
certify that the papers are their original work and have not been
published elsewhere or under review for other conferences or publications.
Electronic submissions cannot be accepted. Papers should be postmarked by
September 1, 2002 to be considered.

There are also opportunities to respond to papers. Responses are normally
five to ten minutes in length with the purpose of opening up conversation
regarding the papers presented.  Responses may be published in the "In
Dialogue" section of the Philosophy of Music Education Review.

Direct inquiries about paper submissions or participation as a respondent
to the program committee co-chairs Iris Yob (email:  
iyob@bloomington.in.us) or Frank Heuser (email: fheuser@ucla.edu).
