Whether you prefer a 4/4 beat, elaborate riffing, or playing by memory (all signatures of the Kansas City jazz style), the 2014 Midwest Archives Conference Program Committee (PC) looks forward to receiving session proposals fitting the theme: “The Syncopations of History.” The full Call for Proposals for the meeting, scheduled for April 24-26 in Kansas City, Missouri, is available the MAC website.
Tell us how you are composing and improvising in your repository. How do you keep your archival rhythms going and still hold the beat? Don’t have money for an expensive electronic record keeping system? How are you putting something together with a limited budget? Use the session proposal form (PDF) or the web-based form to submit your proposal. The deadline for proposals is September 20, 2013.
If you have questions, or wish to submit session proposals in another way, please contact 2014 Program Committee co-chairs Jeremy Brett, Texas A&M University Processing Archivist (979-845-1951), or Michelle Sweetser, Marquette University Archivist (414-288-5905).
