Slavonic and East European Music Studies


About the Series

The parameters of the Slavonic and East European Music Studies series encompass multiple genres of music, including contemporary art music and popular music. The series has no chronological limitation and welcomes topics from any historical period. We encourage submissions that broadly represent the fields of critical musicology and cultural history. Studies of individual works especially rich in context would be welcome, as would studies that bring together music and other disciplines (history of literature, drama, visual arts, cinema) in new and enriching ways.
