Music around the World: A Global Encyclopedia is a four-volume encyclopedia that examines music of the world from a geographic and cultural perspective. The project is geared toward high school and undergraduate students with limited backgrounds in music, thus entries should be written more for a general readership and lack excessive music analysis. We seek specialists to write articles of various lengths (500 to 3000 words) on topics spanning music and cultures from throughout the globe. The encyclopedia is structured in four volumes:
Volume 1: The AmericasVolume 2: EuropeVolume 3: Africa and the Middle EastVolume 4: Asia and the Pacific.
Prospective contributors should send a brief C.V. and a list of research interests to the editors (Dr. Matthew Mihalka and Dr. Andrew Martin) atmusicaroundtheworld2015@gmail.
