Three Women Scholars Honored With a Book Award From the American Musicological Society

A trio of scholars recently received the 2018 Ruth A. Solie Award at the annual meeting of the American Musicological Society in San Antonio, Texas. The award honors a collection of musicological essays of exceptional merit written in any language from any country that is edited by a member of the society or is a permanent resident of the United States or Canada. The group was honored for their book The Rite of Spring at 100 (Indiana University Press, 2017).

The award citation states that “this book of essays applies multidisciplinary approaches to ongoing questions about a central work by Stravinsky. The contributors include an international group of authors drawn from dance and theater specialists, musicologists, and music theorists. They address controversies regarding the genesis and reception of the work, including issues such as: modernism and primitivism, immigration and xenophobia, as well as nationalism and racism.”

The three editors of the book who were honored by the American Musicological Society are:

Maureen Carr, a Distinguished Professor of Music at Pennsylvania State University;

Severine Neff, professor emerita of music at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill; and

Gretchen Horlacher, professor of music at Indiana University.
