Music & Politics


Music & Politics is a peer-reviewed electronic journal first published in 2007 and is publishing online twice a year. We welcome submissions 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 and musical communities, music as a form of political discourse, the influences of ideology on musical historiography, and pedagogical issues and strategies pertaining to the study of music and politics in the classroom. We also welcome submissions of relevant articles that have already been published in another language and that would benefit from dissemination in English translation. Submissions are encouraged from both established scholars and doctoral students. Because Music & Politics is an on-line journal, authors are welcome to take advantage of the media capabilities of the web (sound files, hyperlinks, color images, and video). Many issues also include a book list of items published in the last six months in the area of music and politics.
