North Carolina Folklore Society Annual Conference

The North Carolina Folklore Society annual conference invites NCFS members and others interested in the fields of Folklore, American Studies, Communications, and Ethnomusicology to submit proposals for papers and panels, film/video screenings, etc, for the 2005 conference at North Carolina State University, Raleigh, North Carolina. Authors of papers related to the theme Music in Our World: Taking It to the Streets are encouraged to submit. We are planning a joint conference with two partners: the Society for Ethnomusicology Southeast and Caribbean Chapter (SEMSEC), and PineCone, the Piedmont Council of Traditional Music.
Both individual paper proposals and panel submissions are welcome. Proposals from graduate students in folklore and community-based music scholars are especially welcome. The format will follow the 20-minute paper format, followed by 10 minutes of discussion. For individual paper proposals, please provide name, affiliation, and an abstract of up to 250 words.
Organized panels are encouraged. Each member of a panel must submit an individual paper proposal and the panel chair/organizer must submit a Panel Abstract. The panel abstract should not exceed 150 words. Panels may have 3 or 4 papers, or 3 papers and a discussant. Paper and Panel proposals and abstracts must be submitted via e-mail. Send an e-mail with name, affiliation and abstract to Barbara Lau at firstname.lastname@example.org. Proposals must be received by February 1, 2005. Notifications will be made by February 15th by e-mail.
