CALL FOR PAPERS

The LYRICA SOCIETY FOR WORD-MUSIC RELATIONS is pleased to announce its annua=
l
colloquia at the National Opera Association's 2007 Convention, to be held in
New York City, January 4-7, 2007, at the Roosevelt Hotel, Madison Avenue at
45th Street. Lyrica's sessions will be held on Saturday, January 6th, from
9-11 a.m. and from 2-4 p.m.

To complement the National Opera Association's Legacy Project, which honors
African-American singers, LYRICA's sessions honor African-American composers
and composers of the African diaspora.

Our 2007 colloquia will endeavor to forge into relatively uncharted
musicological and ethnomusicological territory. We seek to explore the
Francophone African-American repertoire, specifically, Louisiana, Haiti,
Guadeloupe, Martinique (et al), for our first session, and the repertoires o=
f
Francophone Africa, specifically, French West Africa and French Equatorial
Africa, for the second. Repertoire may include, in addition to opera
and operetta, other forms of stage works, ceremonial and religious rites and
rituals.

Interested musicologists, ethnomusicologists, anthropologists, cultural
historians and literary scholars should submit abstracts not exceeding 250
words, with updated biographical notices by November 15th to:

lyricasociety_at_aol.com; citing LYRICA/NOA in the subject line.

Papers read at Lyrica's conference sessions are automatically considered for
publication in the Society's peer-reviewed journal, "Ars Lyrica". =20
Participating
scholars are expected to be or to become bona fide members of the Lyrica
Society.

We look forward to hearing from you.

Cordially,

THE LYRICA SOCIETY FOR WORD-MUSIC RELATIONS
