Call for Insights *deadline extended to 6 July 2018*

Diversifying Music Academia: Strengthening the Pipeline

31 October–1 November 2018, immediately preceding AMS/SMT San Antonio

Institute of Texan Cultures, University of Texas at San Antonio

Diversifying Music Academia: Strengthening the Pipeline is a pre-AMS/SMT symposium which seeks to explore why many people marginalized by their race/ethnicity, gender, and/or sexuality continue to have difficulty in finishing graduate degrees, attaining gainful employment, and receiving tenure within all fields of music studies.

We are now issuing a Call for Insights: We invite participants to draw upon their experiences in order to posit or reflect on strategies for advancing diversity at structural and institutional levels. Papers, dialogues, personal stories, debates, teach-ins, and other formats are welcome. Speakers will receive 20-minute slots and they are encouraged to allot equal time to discussion and presentation. Submissions should include a 250–350 word abstract and supplemental materials where appropriate. E-mail abstracts to projectspectrummusic [at] by *6 July 2018*.

Our full Call for Insights may be found here:

Registration for Diversifying Music Academia will open in August. Please visit in the meantime for more information and updates.
