The eighty-sixth annual meeting of the American Musicological Society (AMS) will be held jointly with the Society for Music Theory (SMT) in Minneapolis, Minnesota from Thursday, November 5, to Sunday, November 8, 2020.

The annual meeting promotes the study and teaching of music. It builds community and supports scholars through a range of approaches and presentational modes, including historical musicology, creative practice, ethnography, analysis, performance, musical demonstrations, policy, civic engagement, sound artifact curation, and digital humanities. The 2020 call for proposals and the program committee procedures are designed to reflect changes in the society’s scholarly and demographic profile and aim to encourage new modes of sharing ideas.

Guided by the Society’s Statement on Fair Practice and Representation, the program committee seeks to create a positive working, learning, and social environment in which a diverse Society may develop and flourish. Issues of fairness and representation will be an integral part of the process of creating the program. 

At the Annual Meeting, the society invites members to share work and ideas in the eight formats listed below. (In a change from prior years, the AMS will not offer “Evening Panels,” instead freeing the schedule for other evening activities.) A successful proposal articulates the main points of the presentation clearly, positions its contributions in the context of previous work, and suggests its significance for the society’s membership. Session organizers are advised to convene a diverse panel.
