Every year, EFDSS organises at least one full-scale scholarly conference, devoted to a particular aspect of its work - folk song, dance, or tunes. This year it is the turn of Folk Song, and submissions are invited for what is sure to be a major gathering of song researchers and enthusiasts.
We are inviting contributions on topics associated with traditional song and performance. We would like to represent all manner of topics which may include (but are not limited to):
Papers should be 20 minutes long (+10 minutes for questions and discussion). AV facilities will be available. A1 sized poster presentations are also welcome.
We are particularly keen to encourage students and newcomers to talk about their research interests and findings.
Closing date for submissions: 8 July 2018
The conference will take place from Saturday 10 to Sunday 11 November 2018 at Cecil Sharp House, 2 Regent’s Park Road, London NW1 7AY.
