The Outreach Committee of the Association for Recorded Sound Collections
(ARSC) posts the following message.
--- 2017 ARSC CONFERENCE: CALL FOR PRESENTATION PROPOSALS --- Proposal
deadline: January 2, 2017
The Association for Recorded Sound Collections invites proposals for
presentations at its 51st annual conference, to be held May 10-13, 2017, at
the Menger Hotel in San Antonio, Texas.
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. In
recognition of our host city, San Antonio, we especially encourage
presentations focusing on the rich history of regional indigenous and
immigrant communities, performers, songwriters, composers, broadcasters,
record labels, and personalities in the Southwestern United States.
In addition, the Program Committee invites proposals pertaining to:
-- Collaborative research, preservation/access projects, and community
-- Recorded sound in digital humanities, soundscapes, sound art, and sound
-- Audio preservation workflows and collections management techniques
-- Collecting, copyright, and curatorial challenges from born-digital media
to mixtapes and beyond.
We seek papers and panels that are informative, display a passion for their
subjects, and include compelling audiovisual content. Share your special
interests with our engaged community of collectors, historians, musicians,
preservationists, archivists, and audio engineers.
