>Call for Papers.
>Time Keeps on Slipping:  Popular Music Histories
>The International Association for the Study of Popular Music, U.S.
>Chapter (IASPM-US) will hold its annual conference Mar. 9-13, 2011 in
>Cincinnati, OH, in a joint meeting with the Society for American Music.

>presenters.  Alternate presentation formats, such as
>lecture/performances and roundtable panels, will also be considered.
>We welcome proposals concerning all facets of popular music in the U.S.
>and abroad, but especially encourage submissions that address the
>following themes:
>Canonical Histories:  What aspects of the popular music past have
>assumed greatest authority, and why?  What sort of power do canons (of
>music, of scholarship, of criticism) exert over the writing of popular
>music history?
>Alternative Histories:  What parts of popular musicâ¬"s past have gone
>unrecognized?  How can we re-imagine popular music history through the
>lenses of:
>     - Race and ethnicity?
>     - Gender and sexuality?
>     - Nationality and colonialism?
>     - Cultural hierarchy (high, low, middlebrow)?
>     - Bodily ability and disability?
>Conversely, how can the study of popular music in historical perspective
>help to shed new light on these critical subjects?
>Archival Approaches:  What sources can we use to uncover popular musicâ¬"s
>many pasts, and where can we find them?  How are musical archives
>changing in the digital age?
>Historical Methods:  What counts as â¬Shistory,⬝ and what role does
>history play, in the various disciplines and sub-disciplines that
>comprise the field of popular music studies?
>Local Histories:  How can we decipher popular musicâ¬"s connection to
>specific places at specific points in time?  How can we use the location
>of this yearâ¬"s conference ­ Cincinnati, Ohio ­ as as a starting point for
>reflection on aspects of popular music history?
>The deadline for submissions is October 1, 2010.  Proposals should be
>submitted electronically to Steve Waksman, chair of the program
