We’re pleased to announce that three new, forthcoming music titles have been awarded publication subventions from the American Musicological Society. These funds help offset the costs of publication and allows us to price the consumer edition of the book affordably. The competition is very stiff, and we are delighted these books are receiving this support and this distinction from the AMS.

Mellon Foundation. Queer Country will be published in Fall 2021 as a volume in the series Music in American Life.

Tania León’s Stride: A Polyrhythmic Life by Alejandro L. Madrid has received a grant from the General Fund of the American Musicological Society, supported in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
