20211112T1800 20211112T2000 America/Chicago Jazz and Improvisation Study Group Business Meeting

This is the first business meeting for the newly formed and approved Jazz and Improvisation Study Group. As we welcome interested AMS members, we seek to establish a tone and environment that is both collaborative and inclusive, while also discussing the goals and intentions of this group. In order to build a sustainable model for this group's future longevity, we plan to discuss best practices for creating a more welcoming space for jazz studies that privileges the voices and perspectives of Black scholars, scholars of color, Indigenous scholars, LGBTQ+ scholars, women scholars, graduate students, early career professionals, contingent laborers, and practitioners. We hope that by doing so, we will set our study group on a trajectory which challenges the hegemony of white cisfemale and cismale scholarship in jazz studies. 

In practical terms, at this meeting we also plan to: elect a leadership team; determine programming for the 2022 Annual AMS Meeting; discuss potential collaboration with other study groups in AMS, SMT, and SEM; and explore the possibility of establishing a mentoring network to support graduate students and early-career scholars.
