The University of Pittsburgh’s Jazz Studies Program in collaboration with the University of Illinois Press seek research articles for Issue No. 2 of Jazz and Culture. We invite scholars and artists to submit proposals for our second issue, slated for release in Spring of 2019.


Jazz and Culture is an annual, peer-reviewed publication devoted to publishing cutting-edge research on jazz from multiple perspectives. All methodological approaches are welcome, including ethno/musicology, music theory, and critical and cultural studies. Drawing upon recent trends in music scholarship, we further seek to interrogate a range of issues connecting music, race, class, gender, and other realms of social practice. We particularly encourage submissions exploring the music’s international scope.


We request submissions in the following categories:

·      Academic Articles in approximately 10,000 words.

·      Oral Histories of Jazz Artists

·      Book and Media Reviews (1,000-2,000 words)


To Submit, please send a proposal of 300-500 words in either .pdf or .doc format to: Pittjazz -at- For consideration, please submit your proposals by March 15, 2018. Full manuscripts will be required by June 1, 2018.
