The International Bagpipe Organisation warmly invites you to participate in
the Fifth International Bagpipe Conference (IBC) to mark International
Bagpipe Day 2020 (10 March), a celebration of the world’s diverse bagpipes
and bagpiping traditions. The Friday evening concert and the Saturday
conference will be held at Harvard University. Social events on Saturday
evening and Sunday all day will be held in Boston.

This event is an exciting interdisciplinary opportunity to debate various
questions relating to the study of bagpipes both today and historically.
All are welcome, whether you choose to present or simply listen and enjoy
the atmosphere. The IBCs are friendly events, open to all, promoting
bagpipes from all around the world.

In 2020, we will take the conference to the United States where we will
explore bagpipes in diasporic communities.

Papers touching on topics linked to migration, identity, community and
diaspora, both within the U.S. and in the rest of the world are
specifically welcome.

Interested participants are to submit a paper title, an abstract of no more
than 250 words complete with an institutional affiliation or profession and
contact details by 15 September 2019 to: internationalbagpipeorg -at-
gmail.com.

Due to a large number of applications in previous years, abstracts from
people who are applying for the first time or who did not present in 2018
will be prioritised. This is to encourage a wider scope of presenters. We
do, however, encourage everyone to attend the conference, regardless of
whether you are presenting or not.

Successful applicants will be notified by 15 October 2019.

Programme Committee:
Dr. Panayotis League (Florida State University)
Roger Landes (Texas Tech University)
Dr. Cassandre Balosso-Bardin (University of Lincoln, UK)
