Call For Papers

2008 Echo Conference: Space, Time, and Music

May 30-31, 2008

Submission deadline: March 17, 2008

University of California, Los Angeles

We use music to situate and define ourselves in time and space, as
well as to articulate geographic, social, and cultural identities.
The relationship between music and space encompasses such wide-
ranging topics as the architecture of performance spaces, acoustics,
societal and geographic locations, musical communities, and contested
spaces, both social and political. Music functions in the temporal
world not only through performance but also within memory, as well as
its use in film, dance, and other visual media. Music is also perhaps
uniquely capable of demonstrating the various ways that space, place,
and time inform and constitute one another. As a performed art, music
helps us to both define and challenge the limits of existing spatial
and temporal borders.

With this framework in mind, Echo: a music-centered journal is
pleased to announce its third annual conference, "Space, Time, and
Music", to be held at UCLA on May 30-31, 2008. Scholars from all
areas of music research are invited to submit proposals for papers on
this theme; proposals for pre-arranged panels are also welcome.
Papers will each be twenty minutes long (around 2400 words) followed
by ten minutes for discussion.

Individual presenters should submit an abstract of 300 words or less,
and should also include: 1) the paper title; 2) the author's name and
a brief biography (50-100 words); 3) institutional affiliation and
contact information; 4) audio-visual requirements. Panel chairs
should include all of the above for each member of the panel, as well
as a separate, more general description of the panel's overall theme
(200-250 words). Submissions are due March 17th and may be sent
electronically to echoconf@ucla.edu (please put "Echo Conference
Submission" in the subject line). Alternately, print submissions may
be sent to:
