The Spring 2020-2021 meeting of the New England Chapter of the American
Musicological Society will be held on Saturday, May 15, 2021. It will be
hosted virtually by the Department of Music & Dance at the University of
Massachusetts Amherst; details and Zoom link will follow with the program
announcement in late April.

The Program Committee invites proposals of up to 300 words for 20-minute
papers and for roundtable sessions or workshops (pedagogical, performative,
and/or scholarly). All abstracts are subject to blind review, and
submissions from faculty, independent scholars, and students are all
encouraged and welcome. Abstracts should be submitted by Friday, April 16,
2021, to Mark DeVoto: mdevoto -at- granite dot tufts dot edu.

Please refer to the AMS 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; bibliographies,
figures, and examples should not be included with your submission. If the
submission is for a roundtable or workshop, the same guidelines apply, and
we would kindly ask for a proposal for the session as a whole, including
information for all participants, rather than individual proposals.

The Bylaws of the AMS stipulate that presenters must be members of the
American Musicological Society. Those who are not currently dues-paying
members of the New England Chapter will be asked to kindly remit the modest
Chapter dues ($10).
