ALDERMAN AWARDS

Every odd-numbered year, The International Alliance for Women in Music (IAWM) accepts nominations from publishers and individuals for the Pauline Alderman Awards.

BACKGROUND:

The Pauline Alderman Awards were founded in 1985 by the International Congress on Women in Music to honor the memory of pioneering musicologist Pauline Alderman, Ph.D. (1893-1983), founder and chair of the Department of Music History and Literature of the University of Southern California. Every two years the IAWM calls for scholars to submit their best work in the categories of Book, Article, and Reference work. Past winners include some of the most distinguished names in feminist music scholarship.
