Call for Contributions
Book Publication on South African Music and Music Research

The South African College of Music, UCT and the Musicology Seminar,
University of Heidelberg, are planning a book publication on South African
music and music research. The publication forms part of a larger,
three-year project on “Tertiary Music Education in Post-Apartheid South
Africa” funded by the DAAD programme “Subject-Related Partnerships with
Institutions of Higher Education in Developing Countries”.

South Africa boasts a landscape of highly diverse music traditions, many of
which do not fit easily into any one of the conventional categories within
music studies. In the past 25 years music research in South Africa has
started to take cognisance of this diversity and developed an equally
diverse range of approaches to the study of music in South Africa. The
planned publication aims to pay tribute to this diversity in musical
traditions and approaches to the study of music in South Africa. We call
for contributions which exemplify these approaches in relation to a
concrete example.
