Reflections on Couch-Stone 2014 by William Ryan Force

Joe Kotarba organised a splendid Couch-Stone Symposium devoted to “Symboli Interactionsim meets Music”. The success of the event has been captured very well by William Ryan Force’s blog that was recently published on our music blog

When I learned that Couch-Stone 2014 would take place within about 60 hours between a Thursday evening and Saturday afternoon in San Marcos, Texas, my first concern was that I would have no time to indulge in the local culture in an area I’d wanted to visit for so long. Too often conferences are confined to up-tight spaces cloistered away in a sterile university conference room or corporate hotel—totally separate from the food, art, and (let’s be real) bars that characterize the social life of a city. Anyone who participated in Couch-Stone this April will testify that we experienced an amazing array of the local flavors and sounds thanks to the incredible planning of Joe Kotarba and his crew.
