Jazz, an American art form of enormous importance, has exhibited notable swings in popularity and marked changes in style throughout its history. Consideration will be given to a wide range of papers that explore the relationship between jazz and society, including (but not limited to) racial and gender issues in the past and/or the present. Submissions might deal with these issues in any jazz style period or examine current trends such as the lack of any dominant new style, the splintering of styles, or the borrowing of older styles in new works. A broad spectrum of viewpoints is welcomed.
The deadline to submit papers is June 30, 2005.
To submit a manuscript, send four hard copies plus an electronic version in a Word file with the author identified only on the initial title page. Please send manuscript plus cover letter to:
