About Us

The Southern Chapter of the American Musicological Society consists of a group of scholars — professors, students, and amateurs — dedicated to the advancement of research in the various fields of music as a branch of learning and scholarship. Its members meet once annually for a conference at a host institution in the South.

The 2022 AMS-S Meeting

Our 2022 annual meeting will take place in Gainesville, FL, hosted by the University of Florida, on February 25-26, 2022. (This is a change from the previously announced dates of February 18-19.) The January 2022 chapter newsletter contains full details on our upcoming annual meeting, including a preliminary meeting program and details on travel logistics, the student paper award, and nominations for various representatives. We have an outstanding lineup of papers as well as a special panel session on building career skill sets, which should be useful for both graduate students and faculty seeking to assist their students with career planning.

At this point, we are proceeding with plans for an in-person meeting. Although we are closely monitoring the current situation with Omicron, forecasts show this wave peaking and then rapidly falling by late January. We will continue to watch the virus closely in case a pivot to virtual becomes necessary.

As a reminder, the following protocols will be in place during the meeting:

  • Social distancing is strongly encouraged. The recital hall where papers will be read holds 200 seats, which should easily allow for distancing.
  • Masks are expected at all times while indoors, per University of Florida policy.
  • Hand sanitizer will be readily available throughout the conference.
  • Those who are uncomfortable with an in-person meeting will have the option to attend the meeting virtually. (See the newsletter for more details.)
