Music and Social Justice (Series)

Music and Social Justice seeks projects that engage with the dynamic roles of music, sound, artists, and activists within and across agendas of social justice, past and present. We are interested in how music and musicians make and unmake worlds, nations, communities, and bodies. We welcome monographs, edited volumes, graphic novels, multimedia projects, and alternative modes of scholarly-creative endeavors. And we are open to prospective authors who wish to challenge the rhetorical, discursive, and presentational norms of academic prose in the name of experimentalism, outreach, anti-capitalism, anti-colonialism, and neurodiversity.
