The Journal of Working-Class Studies seeks submissions for the December 2022 issue exploring popular music and class from a global perspective. The Journal is an “open-access” (free for readers) academic publication that grew out of the Working-Class Studies Association and now has its own platform. Every issue is a celebration for us!
The Journal invites papers that consider (but are not limited to) the following questions:
How is popular music classed?
Does social class have an impact on the types of music created and consumed?
How do popular music artists navigate their way through classed structures – are there now less opportunities for working-class artists to break through the class ceiling?
How have working-class people engaged with popular music (as fans or artists)?
The deadline for submissions is August 31st, 2022.
Please see the Journal’s website for information about submissions and a contact email for queries.

Greetings, WCSA friends, I entirely get Music and Class as a topic. I’m not sure what “from a global perspective” means. Does it mean you are soliciting non-Western responses in particular? Or music from other countries than the U.S. or the UK that relates to class? I look forward to seeing you at the conference! Cordially, Lita Kurth

Hi Lita, you could reach out to the Journal editors here: https://journals.uwyo.edu/index.php/workingclassstudies/about/editorialTeam. My sense with the word “global” is that it reminds potential contributors that the Journal welcomes submissions from any country.
