From Friday, February 21 to Saturday, February 22 the Folklore Student Association (FSA) at The Ohio State University, in collaboration with the Department of Folklore & Ethnomusicology at Indiana University, will be hosting the 13th Annual IU/OSU Conference, the title of which is "20/20 (Re)Vision: Looking Back, Thinking Forward." The conference invites participants to foreground alternative, decolonial and underacknowledged perspectives that engage critically with disciplinary origins across folklore and ethnomusicology graduate student scholarship. Specifically, we welcome perspectives that are interdisciplinary in nature and prompt critical discussion and reflection to capture emergent applied and academic trajectories. We encourage those presenting to engage with questions about their own citational practices (both formal and informal) and the kinds of histories we are invoking, and what kind of futures those open up. This year's keynote speaker will be Rachel V. González-Martin of the University of Texas—Austin.
The conference will also feature a forum, (Re)folk-us, where we’ll spend time envisioning what we want for the future of the IU/OSU conference, as well as for our fields themselves. We encourage interdisciplinary conversations about how to build stronger solidarity networks among scholars, activists, community organizations, artists and other actors in this pivotal societal moment.
