Call for Book Chapter Proposals
Editor: Daniel Walzer, Ph.D.

Creative arts professions remain in a period of flux. As the music industry and related fields adapt to changing business models, student interest in training for a career in the entertainment sector continues to rise. Though the expansion of global degree offerings in the creative industries expands each year, a “state of the field” on educational and pedagogical issues in the music business and the creative industries has yet to be created.

University educators serve a crucial purpose in preparing future graduates for a highly competitive path in the gig economy. The Editor invites proposals from a broad range of scholars and industry professionals working in the creative arts for the compendium, tentatively scheduled for release in early 2022. Discussions are underway with a publisher with details to be completed this summer. Topics might include:

  • Music Business and Education
  • The Gig Economy
  • Media Arts and Education
  • Sociocultural Issues in the Creative Industries
  • University and Industry Partnerships
  • Case Studies and Histories in University
  • Popular Music Studies
  • Popular Music Education
  • Music Technology
  • Arts Administration and Entrepreneurship
  • Neoliberalism and Policymaking Issues
  • Curricular and Pedagogical Approaches in the Creative Arts
  • Capstone and Internships
  • Leadership and Management

Other topics of interest related to the creative industries are welcomed. Interested parties should submit an abstract of 150-200 words and a short biographical sketch to [email protected] by June 30, 2020. Selected authors will be notified by August 1st. Once the list of contributors is completed, the proposal will be sent for final publisher approval shortly after that. Interested parties can email with questions and to discuss proposal ideas. Thank you for your interest!
