CALL FOR PAPERS
Submission deadline: February 27, 2009
Keynote Speaker: Andrew Dell’Antonio
University of Texas, Austin
From bawdy troubadour songs to Haydn’s string quartets, from comic opera to Monty Python sketches, music has been used as a vehicle for comedic expression in vastly different settings and for various purposes. There are many possible avenues of inquiry on this issue, including investigations of irony, parody, satire, camp, puns, and other perhaps less tasteful form of comic relief.
Echo: a music-centered journal is pleased to announce its fourth annual conference, "Music and Humor," to be held at UCLA on June 5-6, 2009. Scholars from all disciplines are invited to submit proposals for papers on this theme. Submissions must be received by February 27th and may be sent electronically to echoconf at ucla.edu (please put "Echo Conference Submission" and your last name in the subject line).
