Music and Politics (call for submissions)

Call for Submissions

Music and Politics is a peer-reviewed electronic journal first published in 2007 that publishes online twice a year. We welcome submissions of any length that explore the interaction of music and politics. Areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the impact of politics on the lives of musicians, music as a form of political discourse, and the influences of ideology on musical historiography. In addition, we seek articles that examine pedagogical issues and strategies pertaining to the study of Music and Politics in the undergraduate classroom. We also welcome suggestions and/or submissions of relevant articles that have already been published in another language and that would benefit from dissemination in English translation.
