Call for Proposals

The AMS Performance Committee invites proposals for concerts, lecture-recitals, workshops, and other types of performances during the 2022 Annual Meeting of the American Musicological Society held in New Orleans, Louisiana, 10-13 November. We encourage proposals that develop a point of view, offer a programmatic focus, explore new musicological findings, or relate to the rich musical traditions of New Orleans and the surrounding region. Proposals that engage with the Society's diversity of interests and methodological approaches (including proposals that expand on the concept of "performance" itself) are especially welcome.

Freelance artists as well as performers and ensembles affiliated with colleges, universities, or conservatories are encouraged to submit proposals. All selected performances will be allotted a maximum of 60 minutes.

Although the AMS is unable to offer a fee to artists, modest subsidies are occasionally available for performance-related expenses.

Materials must be received no later than 11:59 p.m. CST, 15 February 2022. Exceptions cannot be made to this deadline, so please plan accordingly. Notifications of the Performance Committee’s decisions will be sent in late May.

Application Deadline: 11:59pm ET, 15 February 2022

OVERVIEW

Funded through the generous support of the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, the Gladys Kriebel Delmas Foundation, and the generous contributions of many individual donors, AMS 75 PAYS Subventions provide support up to $2,500 for the publication of first books by scholars in the early stages of their career. The purpose of this subvention is to facilitate the publication of original and significant research in any recognized field of musicology by providing financial support to publishers in order to offset the costs of book production and thereby reduce the retail price of the book. The AMS anticipates awarding nine to eighteen such subventions annually.

ELIGIBILITY

Subventions are awarded only for work written by members of the AMS. The work under consideration for an AMS 75 PAYS subvention must be a first book, and the author is to have received the Ph.D. in any recognized field of musicology within the past ten years. Applications for any amount up to $2,500 will receive consideration. Applications that are not complete will not be considered.

APPLICATION PROCEDURES

Applications should come directly from publishers, in consultation with the author. Applications should be made after the work is complete and readers’ reports and author’s responses are in hand. Books receiving subventions should appear in print no later than twenty-four months after the date of application.

The following materials are required:

  1. Affirmation that the work under consideration is a first book, and that the author has received the Ph.D. in any recognized field of musicology within the past ten years.
  2. A copy of the entire manuscript.
  3. Copies of the readers’ reports and author’s responses.
  4. A detailed financial statement, indicating: 1) a breakdown of the costs of publication, showing format, size of print run, and projected costs; 2) the amount requested from the AMS as a subvention; 3) the impact the subvention will have on the retail price of the book or resource; 4) the projected timeline for publication.

Application deadlines are mid-February and mid-August each year.

NOTIFICATION AND USE OF FUNDS

Decisions will be announced no later than five months after each application deadline. All awards must be claimed (with submission of receipts) within twelve months of the granting of the subvention. Recipients of subventions are requested to forward a copy of the final product (book, article, resource) upon publication.
