The Otto Kinkeldey Award

The Otto Kinkeldey Award will honor each year a musicological book of exceptional merit published during the previous year (2019) in any language and in any country by a scholar who is past the early stages of his or her career and who is a member of the AMS or a citizen or permanent resident of Canada or the United States. “Early stages” of the career is normally considered to mean no more than ten years beyond completion of the Ph. D. degree; if the nominator wishes to nominate an author who is fewer than ten years beyond the Ph.D., she or he should communicate with the AMS regarding the circumstances involved. “Previous year” refers to the copyright year as found on the copyright page of the book.

The committee, consisting of five scholars, will accept nominations from any individual and will choose a single winner from among all the candidates. The winner receives a monetary prize and a certificate, conferred at the Annual Business Meeting and Awards Presentation of the Society by the chair of the committee. A book may receive only one AMS award.

Anyone may submit a nomination. Nominations, including self-nominations, must be submitted by 1 May 2020. Please use this form to submit your nomination.
