Dr. Mark Malone, professor of music at William Carey University, recently presented an inter-disciplinary session titled “The Mississippi Blues Trail and Beyond” at the 2013 Hawaii University International Conference (HUIC) of Arts, Humanities, and Social Sciences Convention in Honolulu. Malone was chosen as a finalist at the conference and will present his session at the National Association for Music Education Conference slated for Nashville, Tenn., Oct. 27-30.

Malone’s invitation to present at the HUIC Convention followed a juried process in which a project description and an abstract were submitted to a committee of peers in a double-blind screening. The session he presented featured the history of the development of blues music in the Mississippi, within historical, sociological, political, and geographical contexts.

Malone currently serves as curriculum designer for the Mississippi Arts Commission’s Mississippi Blues Project.
