CFP - Association for Recorded Sound Collections

Proposal deadline: January 3, 2012

The Association for Recorded Sound Collections invites proposals for
presentations at its 46th annual conference, to be held May 16-19, 2012, in
Rochester, New York.

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. We
seek papers and panels that are informative, display a passion for their
subjects, and include compelling audio and visual content.

For this conference, we encourage presentations related to recording in the
Northeast. Is there an artist, label, or other aspect of the industry you've
been working on? Preservation, archives management, or research technique
that might be of interest to others? Share your special interests with our
engaged community of collectors, historians, musicians, preservationists,
and archivists.

The deadline for presentation proposals is January 3, 2012. Receipt will be
acknowledged by e-mail. Presenters will be notified of acceptance
approximately one month thereafter.
