Conference this week: Documenting Musical Sources in Latin America

RISM will be hosting a conference this week on Thursday called Documenting Musical Sources in Latin America. We are looking forward to welcoming thirteen of our colleagues who will report on the state of describing musical sources in seven countries in Central and South America. The conference is being presented as a peripheral event of the Gesellschaft für Musikforschung annual congress.

Please see the full program on our conference website. Respected musicologists and librarians from throughout Latin America will report on the current state of describing sources in their countries and the state of research on cultural exchange. In addition, the organizers will discuss continued progress and arrange ways of exchanging data. We are excited about this opportunity to learn from our Latin American colleagues and to explore ways of sharing our specialized knowledge with each other.

The conference will take place on Thursday, September 15, 2016, 10:00-17:00 at the Akademie der Wissenschaften und der Literatur in Mainz. The conference is free and open to the public. Please join us!

Conference presentations will be recorded and posted to YouTube after the conference. You can follow along on social media with the hashtag #gfm2016.
