Special musicological issue on the topic “Music and Popularity

For the upcoming issue of the peer-reviewed journal Czech and Slovak Journal of Humanities (August 2017) we are looking for studies focused on various aspects related to the phenomena of “music” and “popularity”. We invite articles anchored in classical music as well as popular music. Papers which directly or indirectly problematize the traditional polarisation of the aforementioned musical spheres are especially welcome. The issue provides space for specific historical investigations and case studies, but also for wider theoretical considerations which would reflect the construction of the phenomena of the so-called classical and popular music from social, political / ideological, economic, philosophical and other perspectives. In this respect, approaches of ethnomusicology and cultural geography, which would touch on the topic with regard to the specifics of particular localities, regions, nations and ethnic groups, are most desirable.

Please send the full-text articles (3000–10000 words) in English by May 31, 2017.

The text of the article should be accompanied by an abstract in English of some 10 lines (maximum 100 words), with three to ten keywords in English in alphabetical order, and by Author’s affiliation, address and e-mail address.

Please send the article and the abstract with CV to: csjh.musicology@gmail.com

Submitted texts should be written in one of common text editors (doc, docx), in the Times New Roman 12 font, line spacing 1.5; pictures should be submitted separately in formats as jpg and tif. The CSJH follows the Chicago Style Manual.
