Accordion Culture, ICTM 2007

Vienna, July 4-11, 2007

Call for Papers-Presentations

You are cordially invited to submit a 300-word abstract proposal for a
paper (or presentation) on the topic of ACCORDION CULTURE, for the next
meeting of the International Council on Traditional Music, July 4-11 in
Vienna.  Austria, the birthplace of the accordion, would be the perfect
place for us to get together and explore the unique role of the accordion
in all kinds of world folk & traditional musical cultures.  My current
research interest is in the social history of the accordion in America, or
the uses of the accordion in what might be called "middlebrow culture" of
the 1930s, 40s, and 1950s. This panel could explore the transformations of
the accordion in various world cultures (including its manufacture,
design, marketing and circulation), as well as modes of performance in a
wide range of social, cultural and historical contexts.  Presenters are
encouraged to perform, demonstrate, form spontaneous accordion bands,
etc., but your proposal should take the form of a scholarly paper.  Here
is the link to the ICTM conference, with all their guidelines:

If you are interested in being part of this panel, please contact me via
email, at, on or before Oct. 22, 2006.
