American Musicological Society Jewish Studies and Music Study Group

The Jewish Studies and Music Study Group (JSMSG) is a study group of the American Musicological Society (AMS). Our core activities revolve around the annual AMS conference, where we organize an academic panel about Jewish studies and music, and deliver our annual awards for best publications in the field. Over the last few years, we’ve increased our online presence, through our new website and through social media (details below). We’ve launched a blog on our website, as well as a series of Zoom webinars. Additionally, we strive to publicize information about Jewish music scholarship from around the world, and share information about conferences, CFPs, and lectures through our social media accounts.

If you would like us to publicize your events, please reach out through social media, or write to me, at:

Important: Please follow us on social media (this really helps), and share our posts if you think they would interest your own followers:
