CFP: Fall Chapter Meeting (Virtual) -- Saturday, October 2

 The New England Chapter of the American Musicological Society announces a virtual meeting, to be held via Zoom on Saturday, October 2, 2021.  At this time, we do not have a sponsoring institution for this meeting, but we hope that a sponsor will be established in the near term.


The Program Committee invites proposals of up to 300 words for 20-minute papers and for roundtable sessions or workshops (pedagogical, performative, and/or scholarly). All abstracts are subject to blind review, and submissions from faculty, independent scholars, and students are all encouraged and welcome. Abstracts should be submitted by Sunday, September 5, to the Chairman, Mark DeVoto: mdevoto -at- granite dot tufts dot edu.

Please refer to the AMS 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; bibliographies, figures, and examples should not be included with your submission. If the submission is for a roundtable or workshop, the same guidelines apply, and we would kindly ask for a proposal for the session as a whole, including information for all participants, rather than individual proposals.

The Bylaws of the AMS stipulate that 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)
