The 2016 Society for American Music (SAM) conference was held in Boston, where scholars and institutions from around the globe gathered together in a supportive and uplifting five-day meeting that consisted of panels, presentations, discussions, field trips, musical performances, receptions, and the celebration of books and authors. Marking my first time attending (and working at) a conference, #Sonneck2016 was an exciting place that focused on inclusion — cultivating and encouraging diversity in the field. I’m grateful for my time there, and for the opportunity to meet and speak with so many passionate people all in one space.
