We welcome proposals on any aspect related to music and culture, and encourage scholars from the wide range of disciplines beyond musicology to submit. Submitted abstracts should include only the title of the paper and must be limited to 250 words (maximum), without identifying personal information in the abstract file.

In addition to proposals for standard twenty-minute paper presentations, we welcome proposals for themed sessions of 2 to 3 papers, and also encourage submissions for posters, lecture recitals/performances, improvisational works, and art/music installations. For proposals for themed sessions, please include an abstract describing the proposed session as well as individual abstracts for each paper.
