In October 2021, the first virtual Franco Music Forum took place under the sponsorship of Sorbonne University (Paris), the University of Louisiana-Lafayette, and the University of the Antilles. Over four days, the forum brought together musicians and presenters of twelve research papers from the world of traditional francophone music. The forum was attended virtually by some 100 viewers from around the world.
In October 2022, the second annual Franco Music Forum will take place as part of the Festivals Acadiens et Créoles of the University of Louisiana-Lafayette. It will be all virtual and will be held Wednesday, October 12 and Thursday, October 13.
This is a call for papers for the forum.
It is addressed to researchers, both independent and with organizational affiliations. The theme of this year’s forum is “Mixed Identities in the World of Francophone Music.” Any francophone geographical area is acceptable for presentation. The forum has a particular interest in papers dealing with mixed identities with Afro-Caribbean and indigenous roots, but any geographical area can be acceptable (Acadian Quebec, Cajun, colonial France, modern-day France, and others).
To be included in this year’s Franco Music Forum, interested participants should send an abstract of their presentation to [email protected]
Abstracts should be no longer than 250 words. The extended deadline for abstract submission is July 1, 2022.
