The Journal of Musicology is soliciting papers for a special issue devoted to music and the cold war, to be co-edited by Elizabeth Bergman and Peter Schmelz.  Papers discussing all areas of the globe (not just the US or USSR) and all types of music (classical, popular, jazz, and folk) are welcome, as are papers reflecting a wide variety of methodological and theoretical approaches.  New and interdisciplinary perspectives on the topic are especially encouraged (ethnomusicological, historical, etc.).  All papers should deal directly with cold war culture and music.

Abstracts of 300 words are due by December 21, 2007.  A final list of approximately six contributors will be determined by the editors and the Journal of Musicology at the beginning of January 2008.  The final deadline for submission of papers will be August 1, 2008, with papers to be published in the Winter 2008 number.  Abstracts should be sent to the editors: elizberg [at] Princeton [dot] EDU; pschmelz [at] wustl [dot] edu.
