Calls for Submissions, Events

Date: April 2-3, 2022

Mode: Hybrid
MIDSEM plans to hold this meeting in-person and on Zoom. MIDSEM aims to provide an engaging conference experience for all attendees, and they are working to optimize their technical capabilities. It is likely that the sessions will be offered in a bi-modal format, either fully on Zoom or fully in-person. More information on conference modes will be provided after all submissions have been received.

Location: The University of Kentucky (Lexington, Ky)
Lexington, Ky is located in the Eastern Time Zone on the southern edge of the midwestern region of SEM, and is within a manageable driving distance from cities such as Cincinnati, Columbus, Louisville, Dayton, Bloomington, Indianapolis, Champaign-Urbana, Detroit, and Chicago. Given the hybrid nature of the meeting, however, they welcome those from any region.

The Midwest Chapter of the Society for Ethnomusicology invites students and scholars in all branches of music scholarship and related disciplines to submit 250-word abstracts for the hybrid MIDSEM annual meeting to be held from Saturday-Sunday, April 2-3, 2022, in-person and on Zoom (hosted by the University of Kentucky). The Program Committee will consider papers, panels, and workshops on any topic related to music. Abstracts should state whether the presentation is intended to be on Zoom or in-person.

MIDSEM is very pleased to announce that the keynote speaker and guest for this meeting is Dr. Tomie Hahn, President of the Society for Ethnomusicology. The program committee of MIDSEM and the local arrangements committee will work together to assemble a stimulating and engaging balance of academic sessions, workshops, performances and opportunities to experience what the local scene has to offer.
