Music and the Self
2007 Echo Conference

University of California, Los Angeles, June 1-2, 2007

Call For Papers

Over the past two decades, music scholarship has become increasingly
interested in issues of gender, class, race, sexuality and other aspects
of identity. These new scholastic directions have created exciting new
avenues for scholars to examine the ways in which music plays a role in
both the formation and expression of personal subjectivity.  With this
framework in mind, Echo: A Music-Centered Journal is pleased to announce
its second annual conference, "Music and the Self", to be held at UCLA on
June 1-2, 2007.  Scholars from all areas of music research are invited to
submit proposals for papers on this theme; proposals for pre-arranged
panels are also welcome. Papers will each be twenty minutes long (~2400
words)  followed by ten minutes for discussion.

Individual presenters should submit an abstract of 300 words or less, and
should also include: 1) the paper title; 2) the author's name and a brief
biography (50-100 words); 3) institutional affiliation and contact
information; 4) audio-visual requirements.  Panel chairs should include
all of the above for each member of the panel, as well as a separate, more
general description of the panel's overall theme (200-250 words).  
Submissions may be sent electronically to (please put
"Echo Conference Submission" in the subject line).  Alternately, print
submissions may be sent to:
