 ISME Routledge series: Global perspectives in music education

In 2017, ISME partnered with Routledge to create two new book series on global perspectives in music education.

 

The two series offer a focused conduit through which members of ISME and their colleagues can publish scholarly and instructional work.

The series reflect domains in which the global ISME membership engages, promising a cohesive body of work that aligns with the mission of the Society and is resonant of scholarship, practice and research undertaken in its name. To be included in, contribute to and/or submit a proposal, authors must be, or must become, a member of ISME.

Series 1: Themes

Series one reflects topics of broad and critical interest to music education. The themes are fluid, changing with time and responding to the contemporary issues and need of music educators worldwide. Themes might include, for example, music advocacy, music careers, or the role of music in times of conflict. The editors welcome proposals which address boundaried work and new areas of interest.

Series 2: Areas

Series two explores areas of music education reflected through the ISME commissions, forum and standing committee. The designated areas are well established within the Society, with renowned experts already leading cutting-edge research, scholarship and educational change.
