The North American British Music Studies Association invites proposals for the Ninth Biennial NABMSA Conference hosted by Illinois State University from July 23–26, 2020. Presentations on topics related to all aspects of historical and modern British music and musical life throughout Britain, the Empire/Commonwealth, and beyond are welcome. Those that draw upon interdisciplinary or broader cultural contexts are particularly welcome. Presentations may take a variety of formats, including twenty-minute individual papers, workshops involving group participation, roundtable discussions, lecture-recitals, and themed panel sessions. The program committee actively seeks submissions from senior, mid-career, and early-career scholars, those serving within and outside of academia, as well as graduate students. Students selected to present papers are eligible for the Nicholas Temperley Prize and may also apply for the Byron Adams travel grant.
