Fall 2016 Meeting

The Southeast Chapter of the American Musicological Society is pleased to announce its fall meeting at Appalachian State University in Boone, North Carolina on Saturday, September 24, 2016.

Campus Map

For the planned chapter discussion of diversity, readings can be found in this folder:

We are asking everyone to read the conclusion of Sara Ahmed’s On Belonging (given in the folder as “common reading”) and then, based on individual interests, choose one of the six options for additional (short) readings, organized into folders according to various topics. At the meeting, we plan to split into six smaller groups based on these reading options, then reconvene for a full group discussion.

Finally, please remember that chapter dues are $15 per year. This amount covers attending both chapter meetings this school year and you may simply pay your dues with either cash or check when you come to the meeting.

Election of a new president (two-year term) will take place during the business meeting. Nominations (including self-nominations) will be taken from the floor during the meeting, or may be sent in advance to chapter president pro tem Helena Spencer at

We hope to see you in Boone!
