The conference's broad general theme is "Global Languages, Local Cultures" and Lyrica's Seminar is entitled "Revival and Surival: Opera, Song, Regionalism, Pluralism, Nationalism". Please check our posting among the many fascinating seminars proposed by our colleagues in Comparative Litrature:
The ACLA's Seminars extend over three days and explore its chosen theme through a daily, two-to-three-hour session. A maximum of twelve papers will be accepted and each session will take the form of a round-table discussion where debates are encouraged. Lecture-recitals will also be considered. If submitted for publication in "Ars Lyrica", papers will be subject to the journal's peer-review process.
Interested musicologists and ethnomusicologists, scholars of literature and comparative literature should submit an abstract not to exceed 250 words to: lyricasociety at aol.com with ACLA in the subject line by 7 February 2009.
