Guadeloupe, Martinique (et al), for our first session, and the repertoires o=
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

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