Call for Proposals!

The Spring 2018 meeting of the Mid-Atlantic chapter of the American Musicological Society will be held on Saturday, April 21 at the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia, PA.

The Program Committee invites proposals of up to 300 words for 30-minute papers and for roundtable sessions. Proposals may be on any topic related to the fields of music theory or musicology or its sub-disciplines. All abstracts are subject to blind review, and submissions from faculty, independent scholars, and graduate or undergraduate students of any discipline are all encouraged and welcome. Abstracts should be submitted before midnight on Monday, March 5 2018, via email to

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.

Presenters must be members of the American Musicological Society. Those who are not currently dues-paying members of the Mid-Atlantic chapter will be asked to kindly remit $10 in dues, which will help offset the cost of conference materials and refreshments.
