Historical Ethnomusicology Book Series

Yes, it really is happening. There will be an entire book series in the field of historical ethnomusicology!

UPDATE (December, 2017) - Here is a link for the full book series announcement: https://app.box.com/s/xmgl8h5es6sgesja0upiidcoft1n56kb 


I am co-editing this series for Rowman & Littlefield in partnership with Jonathan McCollum, who was my co-author for the book Theory and Method in Historical Ethnomusicology as well as the ‘Historical Ethnomusicology’ entry in the forthcoming SAGE Encyclopedia of Music and Culture. We have previously each served as leaders of the Historical Ethnomusicology section of the Society for Ethnomusicology.

This new series will be open to original, innovative and rigorous scholarly work by ethnomusicologists, historical sociologists, and music archaeologists who study the music of the ancient through recent past, anywhere in the world. It will emphasize significant new findings, novel technological applications, and theoretical developments that challenge previous understandings of global music history. Books in this series will be written in a clear and accessible style with copious references, and effectively promoted through new media strategies.
