The Post-1945 Music Analysis Interest Group is a discursive space for scholars of music after 1945, with an emphasis on the modernist, experimental, and avant-garde. Through its annual meetings and online communications, the group aims to strengthen, support, and develop its members’ ideas and sense of community. It also seeks to bring attention to and foster scholarship on post-1945 music both within the Society for Music Theory and in music scholarship at large.

The call for papers for our 2021 publication award is now available.

The Post-1945 Interest Group also operates a Humanities Commons Page where members can share materials and post on a discussion board.

Our special joint session with the AMS Cold War and Music Study Group took place on Sunday, November 8th. The papers are available on the AMS Pathable Conference Platform, and the abstracts are available on this website.
