The Capital Chapter of the AMS invites proposals for papers and lecture-recitals for its Fall Meeting, which will occur on Zoom. Submissions from faculty, independent scholars, and graduate or undergraduate students of any discipline are welcome. Papers
and lecture-recitals will be limited to 20 minutes. Submissions should include an abstract (250 words) and title. Applicants may submit only one proposal per meeting; figures and examples should not be included with your submission.
This meeting is dedicated to the memory of Laura Youens and Richard Wexler, two esteemed scholars and longtime chapter members who sadly passed away last year. We invite proposals from all areas of musicological research, but in honor of Laura and Richard,
will prioritize those proposals that align with their areas of expertise and scholarship: early music and jazz.
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.”
Regarding the Zoom format, presenters will have the option of submitting pre-recorded videos of their presentations or delivering their paper live. The question and answer periods will be live and moderated.
Please submit all proposals via email to Alanna Ropchock Tierno (aropchoc -at- su.edu). Decisions of the Program Committee will be announced by September 10, 2020.
Presenters must be members of the American Musicological Society.
