The series aims to include a broad range of disciplines as well as inter- or transdisciplinary research addressing topics around music and politics. It welcomes scholars with a background in (ethno)musicology, popular music studies, music education, cultural studies, media studies, sociology, political science, history, and international relations, as well as further disciplines, as long as their work engages with the complex ways in which music is, and can be, political. While the primary focus of the series is on twentieth and twenty-first century music, we welcome both historical research and contemporary analyses, focusing on any musical world, geographical location, or genre, from art music through folk music to mainstream pop.

Themes the series will address may include:

·       music in connection with particular political discourses and ideologies such as populism, nationalism, nativism, socialism, and liberalism

·       music and social or political movements

·       music and international relations / diplomacy

·       music and the state (cultural policies, censorship, funding)
