      Dear IG members, please see our CFP below. I hope you will consider contributing a proposal!

      Call for Proposals: Reframing Post-Tonal Pedagogy for the Twenty-First Century

      The Post-1945 Music Analysis Interest Group invites proposals for ten-minute lightning talks for a proposed special session during the 2022 meeting of the Society for Music Theory on the topic of “Reframing Post-Tonal Pedagogy for the Twenty-First Century.”

      The special session committee is seeking proposals that reconsider the what, why, and how of post-tonal pedagogy: what repertoire and theoretical concepts we teach, why we engage with these pieces and ideas, and how we teach them. Full consideration will be given to proposals that do one or more of the following:

      • reconsider learning outcomes or pedagogical strategies for contemporary classrooms
      • seek to broaden perspectives on post-tonal music and analysis, not just expand repertoire to fit existing theories.
      • tackle bigger questions about post-tonal music/theories and contextualize their roles in a wider university education.


      Proposal details: maximum 350 words, 1–2 pages of accompanying figures optional. Email to Tara Boyle ( by October 15, 2021. Proposals will be reviewed anonymously, so please avoid identifying yourself in the text of your document. Feel free to contact Tara with any questions.

      Process and details:The committee will select several proposals and contact the participants by November 15, 2021. The selected participants will work closely with the session organizer to put together an SMT special session proposal by January 15, 2022. If accepted, the special session will be programmed at the 2022 SMT conference and sponsored by the Post-1945 Music Analysis Interest Group.
