Frankfurter Wagner-Kontexte
Published by the Richard Wagner Society Frankfurt am Main

With the publication series Frankfurter Wagner-Kontexte, the Richard-Wagner-Verband Frankfurt am Main has expanded its scholarship programme, which has so far focused on supporting young stage artists. By awarding an annual publication scholarship, a musicological and high-quality contribution to Richard Wagner research is made. The range of topics is deliberately broad. The only requirement is that the primarily funded dissertations must guarantee a concrete context to the composer Richard Wagner.

Published on behalf of the Dresdner Kreuzchor by Prof. Dr phil. habil. Matthias Herrmann

The writings of the Dresdner Kreuzchor are dedicated to one of the most traditional boys’ choirs of world renown.

Systematische Musikwissenschaft und Musikkulturen der Gegenwart
Edited by Prof. Dr Claudia Bullerjahn

The series presents the results of musicological research and scientific colloquia at the Institute for Musicology and Music Education at the Justus Liebig University Giessen.

The series addresses the latest research in the field of systematic musicology (especially music psychology, music sociology and music aesthetics) as well as all current phenomena of contemporary music cultural life and problematises them with a musicological focus.

Popular music and music in the media are also explicitly addressed and examined in an interdisciplinary manner. The series offers self-contained contributions on all forms of music.
