"Song and Emergent Poetics: Oral Traditions in Performance," an interdisciplinary conference organized by the Runosong Academy in cooperation with the
University of Tampere, the Sibelius Academy,
and the University of Helsinki, is currently accepting proposals. The conference will take as a premise that "Sung poetry
transmits and renews cultural knowledge through resources that are
simultaneously conventionalized and variable" and invites papers on related topics. To read the full call for papers, please click here to be redirected to the AFS Calendar. Proposals are due by August 15, 2013.
