"Curating Ethnomusicology"
Pre-Conference Workshop
June 15-16, 2015. Cape Breton University, Sydney, Nova Scotia

From instrument collections to ballad anthologies, the exhibiting of music is deeply ingrained in the history of ethnomusicology and folklore. Today, with digital technology, social media, and new technological pathways for sharing music, its meaning, and its history, we are living in an exciting and challenging time for those looking for ways to present, curate, and display music. In response, The Canadian Society for Traditional Music has chosen "Exhibiting Music" for its 2015 conference theme. We call for papers, panels, exhibits, films, presentations, and workshops that engage with any aspect of curating or putting music on display. As well, the CSTM welcomes submissions on any music-related topic pertaining to traditional music, ethnomusicology, folklore and cognate disciplines. The submission deadline is December 15, 2014.
