CFP SPRING 2022 Chapter Meeting (Virtual): Saturday, April 23, 2022 (hosted by Yale University)

 


The Spring Meeting, our third and final one for this academic year of the New England Chapter of the American Musicological Society, will be held virtually on Saturday, 23 April 2022, hosted by Yale University. Details and Zoom link will follow with the program announcement in early April.

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 Wednesday, March 9, 2022, to Mark DeVoto, chair of the Program Committee: mdevoto -at- granite dot tufts dot edu, who urges you to send your proposal as soon as practicable.  Proposals will be evaluated as speedily as we can, in order to give presenters time to work on their papers while the snow and ice disappear from our front steps.

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.

Your personal biography may be submitted at the same time, in a separate ¶ on the same page if you prefer --- it will be set aside while the committee deliberates.  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).

Year-End Review: AMS-NE in 2015

As the year draws to a close, I thought I'd take the opportunity to summarize and comment upon chapter activities and events that have marked this past year for us in the AMS-NE. We had a very successful Winter meeting at Boston University on February 21, 2015, which was not only well-attended, but featured particularly good feedback and questions from the audience. I make special note of this as one of the people in attendance that day is no longer with us--Dr. Joel Sheveloff, who left us on November 8, 2015. There have been many beautiful remembrances of Dr. Sheveloff, but I include one from chapter member Fred Thornton at the end of this post. I hope you will take the time to read it, as we lost someone who was an inspiration, mentor, and friend to so many in our chapter. Early May 2015 brought us to a meeting at Yale , which, despite an unexpected campus-wide power failure, was a lively and enlightening gathering! We look forward to being back in Connecticut at The Hartt S
