Introduction
The Midwest Chapter is the largest active constituent division of the American Musicological Society, covering Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kansas, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, Ohio, South Dakota, and Wisconsin, as well as areas in Canada north of our constituent states from Winnipeg to Windsor. The chapter hosts two meetings annually, programming twenty-four to thirty papers given by students, professors, and other interested scholars. More information on the AMS chapters can be found on the chapter pages of the national society's website.
