SEM’s “Disciplinary Intervention for a Practice of Ethnomusicology” statement was created by the SEM Council subcommittee and published on the SEM blog Sound Matters on May 5, 2017. The SEM Student Union Blog is proud to support the ideas and ideals of this statement. Blog editor Ana-María Alarcón-Jiménez has translated the document into Spanish, blog contributor Heidi Xiaorong Yuan has translated it into Chinese, and Nil Basdurak has completed a translation in Turkish. Please click the links below to find the original statement and the translations. Signatures are still welcome. The list of signers will be published in Sound Matters. We are anxious to include as many translations here in the blog as we can, so if you’d like to contribute with a translation, please send us an email (email@example.com).
The SEM conference is almost here! Hopefully you remembered to register, found a hotel roommate to save you some green, and have already read the program book cover to cover out of excitement for this mid-semester vacation.
Since we all have to make up our minds about what events we plan to attend while in DC at the SEM conference, Jennie and Heather are here to make it easier for you! We’ve listed below a few events/meetings/panels we plan to attend as well as updates on a few events that have been sold out. We encourage you to go through the program and take advantage of as many opportunities as you can! More details on specific performances can be found here.
**Quick update: Thank you to those who have suggested more great things for us to see and participate in during SEM. We’ve added these suggestions (in purple).**
