Summer has almost come to an end. We’re excited to welcome students back to campus, as well as welcoming a new journal:
- We are excited to announce the release of a new MPublishing-hosted journal, Music and Politics. Published since 2007 and edited by Patricia Hall (Professor and Chair of Music Theory at the UM School of Music Theatre and Dance, Music and Politics is an open access, peer-reviewed journal published twice annually. Rich with audio and visual examples in its articles, areas of interest include, but are not limited to, the impact of politics on the lives of musicians, music as a form of political discourse, and the influences of ideology on musical historiography. In addition, the journal examines pedagogical issues and strategies pertaining to the study of music and politics in the undergraduate classroom. This release features a brand new issue — Volume VI, No. 1 (Winter 2012) — as well as converted back issues for Volume V (2011). Be sure to check back often — we’ll be converting all Music and Politics back issues for the remainder of the year and releasing them as they become available.
- The Journal of the Abraham Lincoln Association released issues 33.1 online. Volume 33 contains a variety of articles and book reviews, including a review of a book about President Lincoln’s favorite books. JALA is freely available to read online.
- The International Computer Music Conference released back issues from 1975, 1977, 1978, 1981, 1982, 1984, and 1986. The ICMC interweaves peer-reviewed paper presentations with concerts of new computer music, creating a synthesis of science, technology, and the art of music. Each ICMC produces a Concert Program and Proceedings. The Proceedings is the collection of peer-reviewed papers and studio reports presented at each ICMC.
