Music and Globalization in a Digital Age




















[UPDATE, 13 September 2017: We have been in contact with the publisher and contributors, and expect to be able to submit the complete manuscript for this book to Cambridge Scholars Press on 20 September 2017.]

I am pleased to announce that a contract has been offered for my latest book, which will be co-edited with Polish musicologist Mikolaj Rykowsi. We have several outstanding contributors, mostly musicologists and music educators from central and Eastern Europe, who address an array of topics associated with how globalization is changing music worldwide:

Hebert, D. G. & Rykowski, M. (Eds.), (2017, forthcoming). Music Glocalization: Heritage and Innovation in a Digital Age. Newcastle: Cambridge Scholars Publishing.

This book was developed through two conferences on Music and Globalization held in Poznan, Poland, birthplace of leading "glocalization" theorist Zygmunt Bauman.
The book is scheduled to be published in the latter half of 2017, following publication of another book on East Asian cultural studies:

Hebert, D. G. (Ed.), (2017, forthcoming). International Perspectives on Translation, Education, and Innovation in Japanese and Korean Societies. Dordrecht: Springer.
