Woody Guthrie at 100: Woody’s Legacy to Working Men and Women --A Conference and Concerts at Penn State

(Mar 19, 2012)

The GRAMMY Museum is partnering with the Guthrie Foundation and Archives to create the centennial celebrations of Guthrie’s life and work. From September 7 through 9, 2012, Penn State University in State College, PA will host one of those events, a concert and interdisciplinary conference devoted to Woody Guthrie and his legacy. Papers are sought to  address any aspect of Guthrie’s legacy and influence — with regard to folk music, art, literature, rhetoric, philosophy, media studies, politics, and culture; labor history; gender, free speech, and class issues; the history of social movements; the global fight against fascism; and/or the work of the many writers, artists, and musicians whom Guthrie inspired and influenced.
