2011 ANNUAL CONFERENCE IN CLAREMONT, CA
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.

One does not have to be a member of PAMLA to propose a paper, but one must become a member by May 1st to be listed in the program.
In order to propose a paper, please submit the following at: http://pamla.org/2011/proposals

A Paper Title
A Proposal of Less Than 500 Words
And An Approximately 40-word Summarized Abstract

DEADLINE: APRIL 18TH
