CFP: 2015 ARSC Conference
Thursday, October 30, 2014
Posted by: Lorraine Cashman
The Association for Recorded Sound Collections invites proposals for presentations at its 49th annual conference, to be held May 27-30, 2015, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
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. 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.
Since Pittsburgh's history is rich with regard to influential musicians, singers, and songwriters across multiple genres, especially jazz, we encourage presentations focusing on these subjects, as well as recording and music-making in Appalachia, neighboring regions, and urban areas, including Cleveland, Columbus, and Detroit.
The deadline for presentation proposals is January 5, 2015. Receipt will be acknowledged by e-mail. Presenters will be notified of acceptance approximately one month thereafter.
