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.
