Conference panel sponsored by the American Musicological Society Committee on Career-Related Issues
What does a musicology career look like in the twenty-first century? This session will convene musicologists working in the fields of forensic musicology, fundraising development, digital education, and archival preservation for a wide-ranging discus- sion about musicological careers both within and beyond the traditional tenure track. Topics to be addressed will include: how to stay engaged in musicology while pursu- ing careers beyond the ivory tower; how Ph.D. programs can build skills applicable to both academic and non-academic careers; what you can do to prepare for a wide array of careers while working on your degree; and how we can reframe “non-traditional” careers as something other than merely an alternative to academia.
With Katherine Leo, Devora Geller, and Eric Schneeman
