CFP and Happy New Year!

Happy 2014!
I'd like to extend New Year's greetings to members and friends of the AMS New England Chapter. Below, please find the Call For Papers for our Winter meeting on Saturday, March 8, 2014 at The Boston Conservatory.

Upcoming Meetings

I also wanted to mention that due to scheduling issues, our Winter meeting (March 8) and Spring meeting will be very close together. The Spring meeting will be May 3rd at Providence College (please see the
Upcoming Meetings section at the foot of this blog).


Regrettably, the Winter meeting conflicts with the national meeting of the Society for American Music. If you are a faculty member at a college or university in  New England, please consider hosting a meeting. The more hosts we have, the more flexibility we have in terms of picking dates for the meetings. Hosting requires providing a venue, morning and afternoon snacks,  and A/V equipment (and support). We've been very lucky to have scheduled venues between now and Winter 2015, but we are still looking for hosts and would like to keep an ongoing list. If you would be willing to host a meeting, please e-mail:

I look forward to seeing you at our remaining meetings for the 2013-14 academic year.

All best,
Rebecca Marchand
AMS-NE President
