New Proposed Sessions
Working Session: Sounds of the Pacific
The Sounds of the Pacific session is moving forward with a Working Session in 2017. We are, however, eager to invite new participants. We are focusing on music and sound, including any form of popular music (e.g., radio, cassettes/cd’s), local bands and music,
choral popular music, traditional and religious/ritual genres, hybrid music, political songs, various types of sounds both mundane and ritual, and so forth. As a Working Session, participants will be required to precirculate (in January) drafts; we will organize the session such that we have general discussion as well as finegrained analysis of each paper. Please contact one of the organizers for more information.
