--- NOMINATIONS for the 2020 ARSC AWARDS FOR EXCELLENCE --- You are invited to propose candidates for the 2020 ARSC Awards for Excellence in Historical Recorded Sound Research. Nominations may be made by anyone, ARSC member or not. The deadline for nominations is December 31, 2019. Eligible publications include any original work -- book, monograph, article, liner notes, conference proceedings, or electronically-published materials -- first published during 2019. The work may treat any subject related to recorded sound, but must embody the highest research standards. It should deal primarily with historical subjects, pertaining to periods at least ten years prior to the year of publication. The ARSC Awards typically recognize histories, discographies, or biographies representing the "Best Research" in these recording genres: Blues, Gospel, R&B, and Hip-Hop; Classical Music; Country, Folk, or Ethnic Music; Jazz; and Rock and Popular Music. Additional categories include: Record Labels, Manufacturers, or Phonographs; and General Research on the History of Recorded Sound or Preservation or Reproduction of Recordings. The Awards Committee especially welcomes information concerning eligible journal articles, as well as foreign and small-press publications that might otherwise be overlooked.
