The String Band Summit gathers musicians, teachers, and scholars engaged in
string band music across the Americas to explore string band traditions,
histories, practices, instruments, and pedagogy, seeking to foster
collaboration and understanding.

The inaugural SBS will be hosted by East Tennessee State University on the
weekend of April 8-10, 2022. A selection committee will select proposals of
three kinds:

1) Scholarly presentations of 20 minutes in length, to be followed by 10
minutes for questions and discussion. These presentations should highlight
your research into the history, practice, personalities, and contexts of
string band music.

2) Teaching presentations or Workshops of 30 or 60 minutes in length,
followed by 15 minutes for questions and discussion. Teaching presentations
should immerse participants in the sorts of teaching environments that you
create in your pedagogical work. Workshops should be participatory, and
should teach participants about a particular style, technique, or practice.

3) Organized panels / Roundtables of 75 minutes. Organized panels should
include 3-4 presenters and a moderator. Roundtables should primarily
consist of discussion among attendees.

Proposals from graduate and undergraduate students are encouraged. The
committee will select presenters anonymously.

Each proposal should include a 250-word abstract, indicating a central
argument or theme, the relationship to other scholarly literature and/or
pedagogical practice, and conclusions/outcomes. Proposals are due by
November 15, 2021, submitted via this Google form -;!!PvXuogZ4sRB2p-tU!ReUmp7dHHsLt4v7A81r8P2AhNVUHD8kPF0knwz5vtv8huuZjBlwHFTfvTeaIYV_jBbjMkt_FSw$ . The committee plans to respond to all
submissions by December 15, 2021.

The program committee includes Lee Bidgood, Gabriela Fuentes, Joseph
Johnson, Richard Jones-Bamman, Ben Krakauer, Jordan Laney, Mark Miyake,
Jocelyn Neal, Nate Olson, Ted Olson, Raquel Paraiso, Greg Reish, Laura
Risk, and Joti Rockwell.

The primary language of the Summit will be English; the committee is
willing to consider proposals that include other languages. In addition to
these presentations the event will include performances, workshops, and
other programming that is curated by the Program Committee. If you have an
idea for a session that does not fit the above categories, (or have other
questions) contact Lee Bidgood at bidgood -at-
