SEM Appoints Cullen Strawn Moderator of New SEM-L Electronic List

The Society for Ethnomusicology is pleased to announce the appointment of Cullen Strawn as the new Moderator of its electronic list. Cullen has been working with Outgoing Moderator Hope Munro to ensure a smooth transition. SEM is deeply grateful to Hope for her many years of service as Moderator and for her close attention to this vital channel of SEM communication. Cullen is currently Executive Director for the Arts at Old Dominion University in Norfolk, Virginia. He received his Ph.D. in ethnomusicology and folklore from Indiana University in 2011 and was a key developer of SEM’s website and database during his time at IU.

In conjunction with Cullen’s appointment, SEM will soon merge SEMNotices-L back into the Society’s original electronic list: SEM-L. This decision is based on two factors: 1) SEM-L is currently receiving relatively little use; and 2) there is confusion among subscribers concerning which list to use for different types of communications.

SEM-L will now serve as the Society’s central electronic list for the discussion of ethnomusicology, related disciplines, and music-making, as well as for posting notices of interest to ethnomusicologists. For more information on appropriate content and instructions on list use, please visit the updated
SEM-L webpage on the SEM website.

All current subscribers to SEMNotices-L will be automatically transferred to SEM-L, and all current subscribers to SEM-L will be retained on this list. Effective immediately, please address all new messages for the electronic list to
sem-l@indiana.edu in order to assist with the merger.

The Society looks forward to vibrant and informative dialogue on SEM-L. Thank you for your continued participation!

Gregory Barz
SEM President
