The Association for Recorded Sound Collections invites proposals for presentations at its 47th annual conference, to be held May 15-18, 2013, in Kansas City, Missouri.
ARSC welcomes papers on the preservation and study of sound recordings -- in all genres of music and speech, in all formats, and from all periods. We seek papers and panels that are informative, display a passion for their subjects, and include compelling audio and visual content.
For this conference, we encourage presentations related to recording in the Kansas City area and surrounding region. Is there an artist, label, or other aspect of the industry you've been working on? Preservation, archives management, or research technique that might be of interest to others? Share your special interests with our engaged community of collectors, historians, musicians, preservationists, and archivists.
The deadline for presentation proposals is January 4, 2013. Receipt will be acknowledged by e-mail. Presenters will be notified of acceptance approximately one month thereafter.
