CFP: AMS-NE Winter Meeting (February 21 at Boston University)

Call for Papers: AMS-NE Winter 2015

The Winter 2015 meeting of the New England Chapter of the American Musicological Society will be held on Saturday, 21 February 2015 at Boston University.

The Program Committee invites proposals of up to 300 words for 30-minute papers and for roundtable sessions. Abstracts should be submitted by Wednesday, 7 January 2015 via email to jsholes at bu.edu or by mail to Jacquelyn Sholes, AMS-NE Program Chair, Department of Musicology & Ethnomusicology, School of Music, College of Fine Arts, Boston University, 855 Commonwealth Avenue, Boston, MA 02215.

Please refer to the AMS abstract guidelines: “Proposals should represent the presentation as fully as possible. A successful proposal typically articulates the main aspects of the argument or research findings clearly, positions the author’s contribution with respect to previous scholarship, and suggests the paper’s significance for the musicological community, in language that is accessible to scholars with a variety of specializations.”

Presenters must be members of the American Musicological Society. Those who are not currently dues-paying members of the New England Chapter will be asked to kindly remit the modest Chapter dues ($10).

TRANSPORTATION, PARKING, and DINING INFO for Saturday October 4th at Clark University

From our generous host, Ben Korstvedt:

Directions: from the Mass Pike: http://goo.gl/maps/ysN5E

Parking: Ben will arrange for us to park in the small university parking lot next to the Traina center.  (i.e., ignore the sign saying only cars with parking stickers.)

If anyone is taking a train from Boston, your best bet is to take a cab to campus.  There is a bus, but schedules are unclear.

Lunch options:
