« In recent years, protest and public demonstration have become ubiquitous acts of expression in reaction to the myriad social issues that have grown increasingly visible to the wider public. Protesters’ use of sound as a mobilizing entity in settings of social unrest invites an examination of music’s role in human(itarian) affairs. In this curated collection, we seek perspectives on music, sound, and protest from any area of music scholarship, including musicology, theory, composition, performance practice, ethnomusicology, music education, sound studies, electronic media, criticism, and any other field related to the theme of the publication.
Music & Politics in the Moment is a space for discussion on pressing contemporary events and music. It is an open-access website led by graduate students and designed as an excursus to Music & Politics, but with a particular emphasis on present-day politics. Its 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.” M&PITM negotiates the dual issues of accessibility in academia and the need for a timely avenue for critical conversation by taking the form of an open-access web-based journal. »
