Graduate student papers are eligible for consideration for the James T.
Koetting Memorial Prize, established in 1985 by the Northeast Chapter of
the Society for Ethnomusicology as an award for an outstanding paper by a
graduate student. Jim Koetting (1939-1984) was a respected
ethnomusicologist whose main area of research was in African music. He was
a member of the faculty at Brown University where he was an Associate
Professor. This award honors his memory as a distinguished teacher,
scholar, musician, and colleague. Students with accepted proposals that
wish to apply for the prize must formally submit their papers by March 30,
2006, via e-mail.
