List of Honorary Members of the American Musicological Society

Honorary Membership is a status conferred upon members in accordance with the AMS By-laws, III.A.5: “Honorary members shall be long-standing members of the Society who have made outstanding contributions to furthering its stated object and whom the Society wishes to honor.”

“The Board and Council wish to honor you for your work on Ginastera and your ethnomusicological and cultural-historical explorations of Latin American scholarship. Your work has challenged traditional paradigms of center and periphery and concomitant notions of subalternity, focusing on the poetics of subversion to confront the so-called imperialism of context. Working over many years with UNESCO and with more than a hundred scholars from thirty-six countries, you have emphasized music in social contexts and instruments as living cultural artifacts to produce Music in Latin America and the Caribbean: An Encyclopedic History. You have designed numerous exhibitions and helped build a vast collection of instruments as Consulting Curator at the Musical Instrument Museum in Phoenix. You have also mediated musical traditions across continents by contributing to Spanish-, English-, and German-language publications, as well as serving extensively in the administration of the International Musicological Society. Finally, we wish to honor you for your service on the Stevenson Award and AHJ-AMS 50 committees of the AMS. Congratulations, Malena Kuss!”
