The 2024 Phish Studies Conference, which will be hosted at Oregon State University on May 17-19, is soliciting proposals for academic presentations, art exhibits, and musical performances. Scholarly presentations may come from any academic discipline and methodological approach and can fall into three categories: individual 20-minute presentations, 90-minute panel, roundtable, or workshop proposals (three presenters minimum), or 10-minute student scholar papers.
The conference also seeks proposals for artwork to be featured in conference venue hallways and meeting rooms. Additionally, the organizers invite proposals from musicians and bands to play during nightly social events. Performers and bands do not necessarily have to play the music of Phish but should have some relevance and connection to the band or their music.
Phish.net is a non-commercial project run by Phish fans and for Phish fans under the auspices of the all-volunteer, non-profit Mockingbird Foundation.
This project serves to compile, preserve, and protect encyclopedic information about Phish and their music.
The Mockingbird Foundation is a non-profit organization founded by Phish fans in 1996 to generate charitable proceeds from the Phish community.
And since we're entirely volunteer – with no office, salaries, or paid staff – administrative costs are less than 2% of revenues! So far, we've distributed over $2 million to support music education for children – hundreds of grants in all 50 states, with more on the way.
