Martin Hatch Prize

The Society for Asian Music (SAM) invites submissions for the 2019 Martin Hatch Prize. The Martin Hatch Prize recognizes the most distinguished student paper presented at the 2018 SEM Annual Meeting on an Asian music or performance topic.

Purpose: To recognize the most distinguished student paper on Asian music and/or performance, demonstrating a deep engagement or penetrating analysis of some aspect of Asian performing arts, both within Asia, broadly conceived, or in Asian diasporic communities.

Eligibility: Any student who presents a formal paper on Asian music or performance at the annual SEM meeting. Students must be pursuing an active degree program or writing a thesis or dissertation and cannot have completed the PhD. Student applicants for the Martin Hatch Prize may also apply for other awards.

Award: The Martin Hatch Prize consists of an award of $200, a 1-year subscription to the journal Asian Music, and automatic consideration of the revised paper for publication in Asian Music, following the standard blind review. In exceptional cases more than one applicant may be awarded the Martin Hatch Prize.

Application process: Papers must be submitted as presented at the meeting, and cannot exceed 12 double-spaced pages. An extra file containing media may supplement the application, although it is not required. Send cover letter/page (with name, address, institution and academic status), paper presentation and media file, if appropriate (via email, dropbox or other electronic method), to Randal Baier

Deadline: December 1, 2018.

The 2019 Martin Hatch Prize recipient will be announced at the SAM membership meeting during the 64th Annual Meeting of the Society for Ethnomusicology in Bloomington, Indiana.
