The Society for Music Theory’s Autographs and Archival Documents Interest Group promotes scholarship that relies on sketches and other archival documents for analysis. We also support the creation of courses on this topic. This interest group was inaugurated at the 2016 Annual Meeting of the Society for Music Theory in Vancouver. Patricia Hall was the founding chair. The current co-chairs of the group are Laura Emmery and Áine Heneghan.

      The Autographs and Archival Documents Interest Group is interested in developing a special session proposal for the 2023 meeting in Denver on the topic of Serialism at 100. We are not asking for full proposals at this time. Rather, we would like some basic information about what you plan to present: (1) what composers and/or approaches to serialism would be included? (2) how does the presentation engage archival documents? and (3) what is particularly interesting or revealing about your presentation? If you have an idea for us to consider, please fill out this form: (If you have images that you would like us to see, please email them to jenkins[dot]danny[at]gmail[dot]com, but examples are NOT required at this time.)

      The deadline to express interest is Tuesday, December 15, 2022. Co-Chairs Phil Stoecker and Danny Jenkins will review the submissions and determine the content of the session. We will ask those authors whose presentations are included to commit to the session and submit proposals that conform to the SMT CfP guidelines by Wednesday, February 1, 2023, so that the organizers can write an appropriate session introduction and submit the full proposal by the deadline (February 15).

      Please note that we are considering either an integrated special session (three or six 20-minute presentations), an alternative format special session (a session of either 90 or 180 minutes in length that includes presentations of some other length–probably lightning talks that are shorter than 20 minutes), or a set of poster presentations that would be part of the SMT poster session. (Please note that the SMT poster session has been very well attended in recent years, and many presenters report that it was a positive experience.)We look forward to hearing from you. If you know of scholars who might want to contribute to the session, please share this with them.

      All best,Danny Jenkins and Philip Stoecker
