Toronto 2000: AMS Annual Conference Toronto, November 2000
Toronto 2000: Musical Intersections Open Call for Proposals for Joint Sessions The American Musicological Society will hold its annual meeting 1-5 November 2000 in Toronto, Canada, together with fourteen sister societies engaged in musical research and the teaching of music in U.S. and Canadian colleges and universities. Entitled Toronto 2000: Musical Intersections, the conference will bring together the American Musical Instrument Society; the American Musicological Society; the Association for Technology in Music Instruction; the Canadian Association of Music Libraries, Archives, and Documentation Centres; the Canadian Society for Traditional Music; The College Music Society; the Canadian University Music Society; The Historic Brass Society; the Canadian and U.S. chapters of the International Association for the Study of Popular Music; the Lyrica Society for Word-Music Relationships; the Society for Ethnomusicology; the Society for Music Perception and Cognition; the Society for Music Theory; and The Sonneck Society for American Music. The Steering Committee for this joint meeting invites proposals from members of the participating societies for sessions that focus on interdisciplinary topics in the scholarly study, teaching, or creation of music (including performance), in an effective session format involving members from two or more of these societies. A proposal for a joint session may be coordinated with a separate evening concert. Presentations in these sessions may be given in English, French, or Spanish. Proposals for joint sessions must describe the topic and state the purpose of the session in fewer than 1000 words, give contact information for the session coordinator (valid for all of 1999), and provide a one-page resume for each committed participant. The Steering Committee encourages proposals that include participants from many disciplines. It is expected, however, that scholars in the field of music be members in good standing of at least one of the participating societies; membership should be indicated on the resume. All participants must register for the conference. The usual AMS prohibition against successive-year presentations will be waived for Toronto joint sessions only. Six copies of each proposal should be sent no later than 1 June 1999 to Dr. Leslie Hall, Department of Philosophy and Music, Ryerson Polytechnic University, 350 Victoria Street, Toronto M5B 2K3, Canada. Proposals may also be sent before 1 June 1999 by electronic mail to Dr. Hall at <firstname.lastname@example.org>. Fax transmissions will not be accepted. Joint sessions for the Toronto 2000 meeting will be selected by the fifteen-member Steering Committee by 1 December 1999, before the AMS deadline for regular proposals for the meeting. Individuals participating in these special joint sessions may also appear on any one other session on the formal Toronto program, except that those who have given papers at the 1999 Kansas City meeting may not appear on regular AMS sessions in Toronto.
