CFP: AMS-NE Spring Chapter Meeting (21 April, U Mass Amherst)

The Spring 2018 meeting of the New England Chapter of the American Musicological Society will be held on Saturday, 21 April 2018 at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst.

The Program Committee invites proposals of up to 300 words for 30-minute papers and for roundtable sessions. All abstracts are subject to blind review, and submissions from faculty, independent scholars, and graduate students are all encouraged and welcome. Abstracts should be submitted before midnight on Sunday, 11 March 2018 via email to jschwindt at berklee dot edu or by mail to Joel Schwindt, AMS-NE Program Chair, Boston Conservatory at Berklee, 8 The Fenway, 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.” Applicants may submit only one proposal per meeting; figures and examples should not be included with your submission; footnotes will be included in the overall word count.

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).
