The Robert M. Stevenson Award

The Robert M. Stevenson Award recognizes outstanding scholarship in Iberian music. The designation “Iberian music” is here meant to include music composed, performed, created, collected, belonging to, or descended from the musical cultures of Spain, Portugal, and all Latin American areas in which Spanish and Portuguese are spoken. The award will be awarded annually to a book, monograph, edition, or journal article by a member of the AMS. The publication must be written in English and must have been published during the preceding three calendar years (2014 to 2016).

The award will consist of a monetary prize and a certificate. The winner will be selected by a committee of three scholars appointed by the President of the Society. The award will be conferred at the Annual Business Meeting and Awards Presentation of the Society by the chair of the committee. A book may receive only one AMS award in a given year.

Anyone may submit a nomination. Nominations, including self-nominations, must be submitted by 2 May 2017. Please use this form to submit your nomination. Additionally, the award committee may solicit the curriculum vitae of each nominee.
