2014 ARSC Conference: call for presentations

Proposal deadline: January 6, 2014

The Association for Recorded Sound Collections invites proposals for presentations at its 48th annual conference, to be held May 14-17, 2014, in Chapel Hill, North Carolina.

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.

One of the benefits of having ARSC conferences in a different city every year is learning about the unique regional musical influences of each area. The Mid-Eastern seaboard is an area of rich cultural influences, especially with regard to American roots music. The area from Virginia to Georgia has been vital in the creation and dissemination of rural music forms, especially in hillbilly (or country), blues, and ethnic styles. In addition, the Carolinas gave birth to the close harmony “brother” tradition in country music, and the Piedmont guitar style that permeated blues in the 1930s. Descendants of African slaves who lived in the Gullah region, from Cape Fear, North Carolina to Jacksonville, Florida, were the subjects of DuBose Heyward’s novel “Porgy,” which George and Ira Gershwin developed into their folk opera, “Porgy & Bess,” in 1935.

Historical recordings concerning these topics are plentiful and are but a few terrific potential topics relating to this rich cultural territory. Preference will be given to regionally relevant topics such as these, among the proposals that will be considered for the conference.

The deadline for presentation proposals is January 6, 2014. Receipt will be acknowledged by e-mail. Presenters will be notified of acceptance approximately one month thereafter.

The Association for Recorded Sound Collections is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the preservation and study of sound recordings -- in all genres of music and speech, in all formats, and from all periods. ARSC is unique in bringing together private individuals and institutional professionals -- everyone with a serious interest in recorded sound.
