Our Purpose

The North American British Music Studies Association (NABMSA) aims to promote the study of British Music from all time periods on the North American Continent; to provide a collegial and supportive forum for discussion through electronic and other means; to provide a clearinghouse of information on the study of such music; and to foster regular meetings to discuss the same.

The North American British Music Studies Association is excited to announce our 2022 biennial conference July 21-24 at Illinois State University and online. The conference will feature 45 papers, one lecture recital, and two keynote speakers, Falu Bakrania and Jessie Ann Owens. Those attending in person can take a tour of Milner Library Special Collections and enjoy King Lear at the (outdoor) Illinois Shakespeare Festival.  COVID-19 safety will be a top priority throughout the conference.

Illinois State University is located in Normal, IL, and is well situated for transportation links. The local airport is Bloomington-Normal, and campus is a 2.5 hour drive from airports in Chicago and St. Louis; there is also a local Amtrak station.
