Call for Papers: April 10 Meeting
The Spring 2021 meeting of the Northern California Chapter of the American Musicological Society will be held on Saturday, April 10, 2021 on Zoom.
The Program Committee invites proposals of up to 300 words for 20-minute papers. We also encourage the submission of proposals for complete sessions (3 related papers) and for presentations in alternate formats, such as workshops or study sessions. Session proposals should include a rationale for the session and a brief description of each paper or presentation, no more than 500 words in all.
Abstracts will not be subject to blind review, in order to promote diversity of all kinds, including of institutional affiliation and career stage. Submissions from faculty, independent scholars, and graduate students are all warmly encouraged.
Abstracts should be submitted before midnight on Friday, February 19, 2021 via email to amsnorthcal -at- gmail.com
. Decisions will be announced shortly thereafter.
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.”
