(ARSC) posts the following message.
--- DEADLINE REMINDER: 2010 ARSC CONFERENCE, CALL FOR PRESENTATIONS ---
Proposal deadline: January 4, 2010
The Association for Recorded Sound Collections invites proposals for
presentations at its 44th annual conference, to be held May 19-22, 2010, in
one of the most fascinating cultural centers in America, New Orleans,
Louisiana. The conference will take place at the historic Chateau Bourbon,
located in the heart of the French Quarter.
ARSC welcomes presentations on the preservation and study of sound
recordings in all genres of music and speech, in any format, and from any
period. The enthusiastic audience will be drawn from our community of
collectors, historians, musicians, preservationists, and archivists.
In general, we give preference to demonstrations, papers, and panels that
are informative, well organized, and include compelling audio and visual
content, presented by people who display a passion about their subjects.
Presentations may deal with technical issues such as preservation and
archives management or with content-related topics such as discography,
repertoire, and artist profiles. This year we especially welcome
presentations that showcase New Orleans and the surrounding area and their
rich recording heritage.
The deadline for receiving presentation proposals is January 4, 2010.
Receipt will be acknowledged by e-mail. Presenters will be notified of
acceptance by January 31, 2010.
