CMS Cultural Expressions in Music


About the Series

Created in 2009, Cultural Expressions in Music began as a series of monographs that sought to promote and share the diversity of perspectives, cultures, experiences, philosophies, and contributions of The College Music Society’s membership and the music community at large. The volumes published under this rubric follow the tenets of geo-musicology, an interdisciplinary outreach of recent coinage, which integrates musical expression, geo-political thinking, and migratory movement of musicians, musical genres, styles, repertoire, and practices. The monographs and edited collections in the series urge readers worldwide to reflect, musically and culturally, upon one of the most pressing issues of our time: immigration.
