Penn State University in State College, PA is partnering with the GRAMMY Museum, the Guthrie Foundation, and the Woody Guthrie Archives to celebrate Woody Guthrie's centennial year. The Penn State Conference will feature presented papers along with a stellar concert and opportunities to meet and greet artists, writers, and luminaries in the field. We seek papers for an interdisciplinary conference devoted to Woody Guthrie and his legacy.
The conference on September 7–9, 2012, seeks paper proposal submissions addressing any aspect of Guthrie’s legacy and influence — with regard to folk music, art, literature, rhetoric, philosophy, media studies, politics, and culture; labor history; gender, free speech, and class issues; the history of social movements; the global fight against fascism; and/or the work of the many writers, artists, and musicians whom Guthrie inspired and influenced.
