American Musicological Society – Lost Gen

Hey, American Musicological Society, maybe there wouldn’t have been such a “lost generation” of musicologists (1980-2010) if you hadn’t:
  1. substantially over-supplied Ph.D.s for the available academic positions,
  2. almost entirely ignored the need for alternative-academic career paths,
  3. frequently jammed your heels in on an ideological high-horse regarding many types of music that actually matter, 
  4. alienated tens of thousands of music students and colleagues,
  5. forced virtually all content through endless committees and rules, and poorly-implemented uses of technology,
  6. made it virtually impossible for individuals without academic jobs, and/or the thousands of dollars necessary to present at conferences, to do anything useful.
