International Council for Traditional Music

A Non-Governmental Organization in Formal Consultative Relations with UNESCO

Meeting April 2003, Los Angeles

The Music Archaeology Study Group of ICTM (the International Council of Traditional Music) will hold its study group meeting April 25-27, 2003 on the campus of the University of California, Los Angeles. Anyone is welcome to attend.

GENERAL INFORMATION:
The study group is newly re-organized, and this will be the first study group meeting. The group will complement existing groups that hold meetings in Europe and other parts of the world, with the goal of increasing interaction and information exchange among those with similar interests.

STUDY GROUP MEETING:
The group will meet for a reception and dinner on Friday, April 25. Presentations and discussions will take place all day Saturday, April 26 and in the morning on Sunday, April 27.

Membership in ICTM is required for membership in the study group. The membership fee is $40, but subsidies may be available for the first year of membership, particularly for foreign scholars and students.

TRAVEL COSTS:
I regret that the study group is unable to provide any support for travel costs for this year's meeting; however, local scholars will provide rooms for visitors.

Business Meeting:

The re-forming Study Group on Music Archaeology had a business meeting at the ICTM meeting on Friday, 6 July 2001. The meeting was attended by:

Joachim Braun
Theodore Burgh
Regina Randhofer
Julia Sanchez

About 12 other individuals expressed interest in joining the study group but were unable to attend the meeting in Rio de Janeiro.
The first issue discussed was the viability of music archaeology study group. The participants developed a list of 20 individuals conducting research in the area who will be contacted and asked to join.

The second issue was to hold a regional meeting of the study group in 2002. Theodore Burgh offered to explore the possibility of hosting the conference at Notre Dame University. If the meeting can not be organized by 2002, it was agreed to arrange it for 2003, either to coincide with the general ICTM meeting or at another time.

The third issue was election of an official Chair of the study group. The responsibilities of the chair would be to continue contacting potential members, begin an email discussion group, and facilitate organization of a meeting for 2002. Julia Sanchez was elected chair unanimously (not difficult to reach consensus with such a small group).
