NOVEMBER 5-6, 2011

SPECIAL SESSION
"Contemporary Music"
Presiding Officer: Shawn Higgins, Columbia University, smh2191@columbia.edu

Music is language, too! We communicate through it, it inspires movements, it infuriates governments and authority figures, and it is the soundtrack of our personal lives. This session, the only music session at PAMLA, calls for papers which critically engage with any and all types of contemporary music and either the effects of music on society or how society inspires the creation of music.
