Call for Submissions: Collection of Essays on the Role of Music in Multicultural Activism (Praeger Publishing)


Via Writers for Diversity: Deadline: 1 October 2012

This book is a two volume series of essays telling stories of the ways in which music has propelled resistance and revolutionary movements in the United States and around the world.

The two-volume series will illustrate a consistent pattern of musical influence on political resistance movements by providing accounts describing a vast array of musical styles from diverse parts of the world and their use in these movements. One volume covers movements in the U.S. and the other has an international focus. The purpose of this series is to encompass a wide perspective on the role of music in political activism.

We are especially interested in essays that deal with the following:

  • Northern Africa
  • Brazil
  • Middle East
  • Southeast Asia
  • Indonesia
  • Australia/New Zealand
  • Ireland

Please submit completed essays of 6000-9000 words with citations in Chicago Manual of Style endnotes by October 1, 2012 to Lindsay Michie Eades and Eunice Rojas. Contributors will be notified of acceptance by October 15, 2012. The series is under contract and scheduled for publication with Praeger Publishing Company in August 2013.
