The 2020 Barbara B. Smith Webinar Series: A Legacy for Ethnomusicology

On 10 June 2020 ethnomusicology pioneer Barbara B. Smith marks her hundredth birthday. Prior to COVID-19, we planned a series of events during 2020 to celebrate this milestone. As part of this celebration, a conference with papers by those she has taught or mentored  at the University of Hawai’i was to be held on 10 and 11 June 2020. We are shifting the conference to webinars on Zoom, entitled The 2020 Barbara B. Smith Webinar Series: A Legacy for Ethnomusicology.

There are 7 conference panels which will become 7 webinars, one per month. Each webinar will be scheduled on the 10th of every month beginning in June through December.

   June 10  Wednesday~ Panel 1

   July 10 Friday ~ Panel 2

   August 10 Monday ~ Panel 3

   September 10 Thursday ~ Panel 4

   October 10 Saturday~ Panel 5

   November 10 Tuesday ~ Panel 6

   December 10 Thursday ~ Panel 7

The time slot for the monthly webinars will be 1:00 – 2:30 pm Hawaii Standard Time. This will allow all interested alums, colleagues, and friends to log in to Zoom and “attend” once a month. The webinars will be recorded and shared with everyone.

Participation is free, but registration is required.  Please register for the Webinar with this link.   https://forms.gle/QVkweCGfaeYryQya8

Instead of a birthday banquet, which is unfortunately not feasible at this time, we will hold a virtual birthday toast by Zoom on Ms. Smith’s actual birthday, Wednesday June 10 following the paper presentations, circa 2:30 – 2:45 pm HST.

In lieu of airplane tickets and boarding expenses, please consider making a tax deductible donation to the Barbara B. Smith Webinar Fund to help us cover the costs. Choose the options that you are comfortable with:

_____ $20                  _____ $50                  _____ $100                _____ Other



This webinar series is organized by the University of Hawai'i Music Department and co-sponsored by the East-West Center, the Hawai'i Arts Alliance, and the PA'E Foundation.
