2020 Meeting of the NYSSL Chapter of AMS
Colgate University, April 2-3, 2020

Deadline for proposals: Saturday, February 1

The 2020 spring meeting of the New York State St. Lawrence chapter of the American Musicological Society will take place on Thursday and Friday 2–3 April at Colgate University in Hamilton, New York. We welcome proposals for 20-minutes presentations on all areas of scholarship in music, in addition to panel recommendations and proposals, or other alternative formats.

The conference will feature a keynote address by Professor Christina Baade of McMaster University and a graduate student workshop. This year’s workshop topic will be announced shortly.
Please submit abstracts of no more than 250 words to the Program Committee Chair: Mary Simonson, Colgate University, at msimonson [at] colgate [dot] edu. The deadline for proposals is Saturday, February 1, 2020. Review of proposals is blind. In the body of an email, please include your name, title of the paper, affiliation, and contact information, as well as any A/V requirements beyond digital projection with sound (for example: piano, tape/CD player, etc.). Please then attach an abstract in PDF or Word format to your email. Do not include your name in the file name or abstract document.  Note: The submission of an abstract presupposes that the proposer agrees to present the paper should the program committee accept it.

You do not need to be a member of the AMS or the NYSSL chapter to submit a proposal. Should your paper be selected for presentation, you will need to pay the meeting fee ($20 for full-time faculty, $10 for all others) and become a member. 
The fee can be paid in person at the meeting.

Graduate students may request to be considered for the AMS-NYSSL Student Paper Prize. If you wish to be considered, please note this in the text of your email submission. We also hope to offer modest travel stipends to help offset graduate students’ transportation costs.

Information on local hotels, B&Bs, and restaurants will be posted on our website as it becomes available.
