We are happy to announce an exciting collaboration between The Ohio State University Folklore Student Association and the Indiana University Folklore & Ethnomusicology Student Associations. The conference aims to create a space for graduate and undergraduate students to share their research within their respective fields as it relates to the study of academic and vernacular interpretation of everyday life.
The conference will have three opportunities for participation: paper presentations, poster sessions, and a discussion forum for all attendees.
We welcome 250 word abstracts for 15-minute papers and poster presentations that deal with topics relevant to these fields:
We highly encourage poster submissions, particularly for research projects in progress, as there will be opportunities for active dialogue. Please see the IU FSA website for details on submissions: www.indiana.edu/~folksa.
The discussion forum will allow all attendees to engage with enduring issues in our fields and to consider how those issues have emerged in their own research. Potential attendees are encouraged to submit three issues that have emerged in their own research for inclusion in developing this forum. Forum issues should also be submitted by February 19, 2008. Come join this important conversation. Remember, together we are shaping the future of our fields!
This conference will be hosted at The Ohio State University May 17-18. Our Plenary speaker is Dr. Alan Govenar, a scholar, filmmaker, and playwright whose work particularly focuses on African-American music.
The deadline for submissions is February 19, 2008. Please email submissions to firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information on the details of the conference (lodging, location, etc.) and Dr. Govenar, please visit www.iub.edu/~folksa in the coming months.
