Transcultural Music Studies publishes monographs and edited collections on contemporaneous explanations surrounding the nature of music and human beings in a (post-)global world. Books in this series encompass a comprehensively wide selection of subject matters alongside a shared interest in fieldwork—physical, virtual, historical—and its complex challenges and fascinations in a postcolonial age. Topics include music’s use in social, collective and psychological life; musical individuals; music in globalization and migration; music education; music, ethnicity and gender; and environmental issues. Please send book proposals and/or manuscripts to the series editors.
