Mystic Seaport Museum has extended the submission deadline for papers to be presented at our Music of the Sea Symposium, held in conjunction with our annual Sea Music Festival. The updated deadline for submission is now March 15, 2015.

Mystic Seaport's 36th Annual Symposium
Sponsored by Mystic Seaport Museum, Connecticut College, and the University of Connecticut at Avery Point
June 12 & 13, 2015

We are seeking proposals for papers in History, Literature, Folklore, Ethnomusicology, or other appropriate disciplines that address any aspect of music or verse of the sea or inland waters from the Age of Sail through the present day. The two-day symposium is part of a three-day event whose focus celebrates the lives and work of sailors through musical performance.

The Friday, June 12, session will be held in the Olin Science Center on the Connecticut College campus in New London, CT, and the Saturday session, June 13, at Mystic Seaport, in Mystic, CT.

Topics of interest have included: shipboard work songs, songs of maritime or other occupational trades, songs of rivers and lakes, seafaring cultures and cultural change, ethnicity and ethnic influences, cultural exchanges, ballad and broadside traditions, technology, regional interests, the use of sea music in literature, and popular culture.

UPDATED SUBMISSION DEADLINE is March 15, 2015. Audio or visually illustrated presentations welcome.
Graduate students are encouraged to submit a proposal.
Proposals should be 1-2 pages and should include a thesis, an explanation, and a list of sources.

if the number of presenters is low, it would still be nice to have more Q & A time with the ones you have... imo

it's quality not quantity that makes a good symposium.
