Dear colleagues, 

I’m writing with a reminder that the deadline to submit entries for the 2019 Philip Brett Award is May 1, 2019. I hope you’ll consider a submission!

The Philip Brett Award, sponsored by the LGBTQ Study Group of the American Musicological Society, is named in honor of Philip Brett (1937–2002), one of the founding members of the study group. Each year it honors exceptional musicological work in the field of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender/transsexual studies completed during the previous two calendar years (2017 or 2018), in any country and in any language. By “work” is meant a published article, book, edition, annotated translation, a paper read at a conference, teaching materials (course descriptions and syllabi), and other scholarly work accepted by the award committee that best exemplifies the highest qualities of originality, interpretation, theory, and communication in this field of study. By "completion" is meant the publication in the case of articles, books, editions, etc.; and delivery at a conference or the like in the case of a paper. The committee will entertain nominations from any individual, including eligible scholars who are encouraged to nominate their own work. Individuals may receive the award on more than one occasion. 

Nominations should include the name of the scholar, a description of the work, and a statement to the effect that the work was completed during the previous two calendar years. The committee will contact the nominee for additional material as needed. Self-nominations should include material to be considered and a curriculum vitae. Nominations, including a digital copy of all application materials, should be sent by 1 May 2019 to the LGBTQ Study Group Co-chairs: amslgbtq [at] gmail [dot] com.
