Editor in Chief | Editorial Board | Articles and Contributors Graduate Award


The study of music, “musicology,” is a relatively new discipline in academe, beginning in late nineteenth-century Germany. In the second half of the twentieth century, “ethnomusicology” became a viable academic discipline spawning a scholarly literature for the study of all musics not treated by traditional (“historical”) musicology. Oxford Bibliographies in Music takes a pragmatic approach, based on the past and emerging literature about music: if authors have found something they define as music worthy of serious study, it is music.

Oxford Bibliographies in Music combines the best features of a high-level encyclopedia and a traditional bibliography in a style tailored to meet the needs of today’s online researchers. Each article, written and reviewed by top scholars in the field, is rich with citations and annotations, expert recommendations, and narrative pathways to the most important works for virtually all areas of music.

He is a past President and Honorary Member of the Society for Seventeenth-Century Music and past Editor-in-Chief for the Journal of Seventeenth-Century Music. He has also been a frequent recitalist as harpsichordist or organist. He received his B.A. from Kalamazoo College, a Master of Music in organ performance from the University of Oklahoma, and a Ph.D. in musicology at the University of Michigan.

The Oxford Bibliographies Graduate Student Article Award is an annual, invitation-only award that offers experienced doctoral candidates an opportunity to contribute to Oxford Bibliographies in Music, to draw attention to their work, and to add a peer-reviewed publication to their CVs. Invitation is by faculty nomination only. Nominations are now being accepted.

“Graduate students are by necessity deeply and critically engaged in the literature within emerging areas of research. This knowledge puts them in an ideal position to write for Oxford Bibliographies. I am particularly excited about the potential of this award as a pathway to including articles on cutting-edge topics, and I think it is an important acknowledgement of the significant contribution graduate students routinely make to the production of new scholarship.”

--Damon Zucca, Reference and Online Publisher, Oxford University Press

Oxford Bibliographies is a partnership between the publisher and the academic community, and we invite you to participate. Please feel welcome to email Anna-Lise Santella, our subject editor, with comments, suggestions, or questions.
