Call for blog participation: Privilege in the American Musicology Society

I’m still working on part 2 of my series about who gets to wield the power of words, but in the meantime, I’m seeing wonderful commentary by people who don’t know where / how to make their posts more public or who haven’t felt safe doing so elsewhere. So I’d like to invite anyone who is interested to publish here, as a guest blogger, in hopes that we can start a productive conversation not just about what happened in #MNKerfuffle #DonGiovannigate, but also to help AMS leadership know where to go from here.

Options:

  1. Write something, and publish it here as a guest blogger. I can offer you the safety of moderated comments; you can choose which comments to allow. I’m also happy for you to write under a pseudonym and I will guarantee your anonymity.
  2. If you’ve already written something and have published (or are about to publish) it elsewhere, please send me a link. I’ll set up a blog hop page and will keep it updated.

I am particularly interested in essays that:

  1. are data- or experience-driven, and address systemic issue of privilege within the AMS.
  2. not only address systemic problems, but also suggest solutions. This will help us get beyond the “we’re sorry, we didn’t know” phase and into the “let’s do this” phase.

Anyone interested?
