The IAMSG-AMS is now receiving proposals for our third sponsored Lightning Lounge event to take place in the 87th Annual Meeting of the AMS, November 4–7, 2021.
We invite 7-minute presentations that explore the issue of “Music and Migration, Exile, or Diaspora.” Proposals may refer to any kind of musical activity involving migration, exile, or diaspora from and to the Iberian Peninsula, Latin America, and the Caribbean in any time frame. Possible topics may include but are not limited to composers, performers, and music scholars who either chose or had to relocate because of their political affiliations, sexual orientation, or lack of economic opportunities; the construction of historical narratives that either include or exclude these musicians; and individual or collective stories of exile, or displacement.
*While proposals with this emphasis will be prioritized, other topics are welcomed too.
If you are interested in being one of the presenters, please submit a Word document with a title and short abstract (150-200 words), institutional affiliation (if applicable), and tech requirements to a.s.rojo –at– tulane.edu
no later than March 1, 2021. The subject of the email should be “[LastName] IAMSG Proposal.” Proposals can be in English, Portuguese, or Spanish.
