Woody Guthrie at 100: Woody’s Legacy to Working Men and Women

A Conference and Concerts at Penn State, September 7-9, 2012

The GRAMMY Museum is partnering with the Guthrie Foundation and Archives to create the centennial celebrations of Guthrie’s life and work. Penn State University in State College, PA will host one of those events, a Conference and Concert, WOODY@100:WOODY GUTHRIE’S LEGACY TO WORKING MEN AND WOMEN. To that end, we seek papers for this interdisciplinary conference devoted to Woody Guthrie and his legacy.

Papers may address any aspect of Guthrie’s legacy and influence —
with regard to folk music, art, literature, rhetoric, philosophy, media
studies, politics, and culture; labor history; gender, free speech, and
class issues; the history of social movements; the global fight against
fascism; and/or the work of the many writers, artists, and musicians
whom Guthrie inspired and influenced.
