Sonneck Society 23rd National Conference
SONNECK SOCIETY CALL FOR PAPERS The Sonneck Society for American Music will hold its twenty-third National Conference in Seattle, Washington on 5-9 March 1997 hosted by the University of Washington. Proposals for papers and performances involving all aspects of music in America (defined as Canada, United States, Mexico, and the Caribbean) are welcome. While a broad range of topics and approaches is the Program Committee's goal, topics highlighting the cultural diversity of the Pacific Northwest would seem particularly appropriate. In each case, a clear thesis and convincing methodology will highly recommend a presentation to the Program Committee. To foster dialogue and discussion, the Program Committee would like to advocate consideration of various presentation formats including panels, presentations with respondents, and papers integrated with performances. Papers should be carefully timed to last no longer than twenty minutes, and performances not more than thirty minutes. Whether you intend to present a paper or to perform, please submit *five copies of a proposal* (500 words maximum) and *five copies of an abstract* in suitable form for publication in the conference program (100 words maximum); performers should also send five copies of an audio cassette tape. Your name should appear on only one copy of your proposal, abstract, and/or cassette. Please also include a *list* (one copy only) of *any audiovisual equipment* you will need, and *two-self-addressed stamped envelopes.* The Program Committee requests that presenters of the 1996 Sonneck Society Conference refrain from submitting a proposal for the 1997 conference. All materials must be received on or before September 1, 1996 by Program Chair Rae Linda Brown, University of California, Irvine, School of the Arts - Music, Irvine, CA 92717. Early submission is encouraged and appreciated. Other members of the Program Committee are: Leonard Brown, Tara Browner, Marva Carter, Ingrid Monson, Wayne Shirley, and Marta Robertson. Sonneck interest groups and committees wishing to meet during the conference should notify the Program Chair, also by September 1, 1996, so that their meetings may be scheduled. --Rae Linda Brown, Program Chair William Everett, Public Relations Committee #@#@#@#@#@#@#@#@#@ William ("Bill") Everett Department of Music Washburn University Topeka, Kansas 66621 (913) 231-1010, ext. 1519 e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org For further details, see the web page at http://aaln.org/sonneck/ Included on the web site is general conference information, the program, the conference registration form, and hotel information.
