The AMS History of Music Theory Study Group is organizing a special evening session (AMS Boston, 31-Oct-3 Nov) on the theme of “Revolutions in the History of Music Theory.” We invite proposals for short papers (ca. 15 mins) that engage with the idea of revolution
from a wide range of perspectives, including but not limited to: the entanglements of music theory with political, theological, or technological revolutions across the historical spectrum; the role of music theory in the articulation or defense of stylistic,
notational, or historiographical revolutions; and the use of "revolutionary" structures such as circular diagrams, rotational symmetries, and cyclical patterns in the formulation of music-theoretical concepts. Proposals of no more than 200 words should be
sent to historyofmusictheory -at- gmail.com
