Thanks, Bob!

The Society for American Music�s 2012 meeting will include a seminar on
Music & Disability. Joseph Straus (CUNY) will be a respondent for both
meetings of the seminar during the conference. All seminar proposals should
be submitted online at by
June 15, 2011, and the specific seminar topic should be clearly specified.
Unless the author specifies otherwise, abstracts not accepted for either of
the two seminars will be considered by the program committee for one of the
regular sessions. Although papers for the seminars will not be "read" in the
traditional sense, the act of participating in the seminar as a presenter
and defending the ideas of one's paper constitutes the same level of
participation in an academic conference as would a normal paper.  For this
reason, those submitting abstracts toward a seminar cannot also submit
toward a regular session. Learn more about the seminar topic and format at .

All materials must be electronically date-stamped by 15 June 2011. Questions
about the submission process may be sent to:

How the Seminar Will Work:  A final paper and 500-word abstract for that
paper will be due from each accepted participant no later than January 15,
2012 and should be sent to the seminar's chair, Kendra Preston Leonard, at
kendraprestonleonard[at]gmail[dot]com and posted to this wiki. Each seminar
participant will also write a 250-word response to the papers in their
specific sessions by March 1. These responses will be circulated prior to
the meeting so that the focus of the seminar session at the SAM meeting can
be discussion rather than summation of participants' work. Abstracts for all
papers will be made available for the seminar audience. The seminar session
will include panel
discussion about the papers and audience discussion about the topics of the
