I am excited to see you all at the AMS/SMT Joint Meeting in Milwaukee in November. The SMT has recently instituted new grant opportunities, including some to defray the cost of childcare during conference attendance, and some to support independent/underfunded scholars for conference attendance. If you qualify, apply! http://societymusictheory.org/grants/meetings
Our DISMUS special session “Recasting Music: Body, Mind, Ability” will take place on Saturday, November 8, 8-11 p.m.; mark your calendars. We are excited to feature short papers from Michael Bakan, Stephanie Jensen-Moulton, Jessica Holmes, Blake Howe, Jennifer Iverson, and Joseph N. Straus, and interactive discussion with our three respondents: noted senior Disability Studies scholar Tobin Siebers (University of Michigan), senior musicologist Andrew Dell’Antonio (University of Texas at Austin) and his collaborator in ongoing neurodiversity research, Elizabeth J. Grace (National Louis University). We are currently raising funds for respondents honoraria. Please consider donating as you are able; this is a unique and rare opportunity for us to interact with senior scholars, and likewise, for our musicological concern with disability to become more widely known to those active in DS. We THANK YOU for any donation you are able to make. Click the button to make a donation (in $10 increments; adjust your quantity accordingly). Payments are collected via the AMS. Questions/concerns can be directed to Jennifer Iverson (email@example.com).
