Black Sacred Music digital archive

Duke University Press is pleased to make the complete archive of Black Sacred Music: A Journal of Theomusicology available digitally for the first time. Edited by Yahya Jongintaba (formerly known as Jon Michael Spencer), the journal was published from 1987 to 1995. The nine-volume archive will be available for purchase beginning in summer 2019.

Black Sacred Music sought to establish theomusicology—a theologically informed musicology—as a distinct discipline, incorporating methods from anthropology, sociology, psychology, and philosophy to examine the full range of black sacred music. Its scope included black secular music, the early days of rap, soul, jazz, civil rights songs, the religious music of Africa and the African diaspora, spirituals, gospel music, and the music of the black church.

Project Euclid now hosts the African Journal of Applied Statistics, which publishes original articles on applied sciences, often using African data. This journal joins Euclid Prime in 2020, with free preview access for current 2019 subscribers.

Tusi Mathematical Research Group journals exit publishing program

After the publication of their 2019 volumes, Duke University Press will no longer publish Annals of Functional Analysis and Banach Journal of Mathematics, both owned by the Tusi Mathematical Research Group (TMRG). Both journals, along with Advances in Operator Theory, owned and published by TMRG, will exit Euclid Prime in 2020. Springer will begin publishing all three journals starting in 2020. Subscribers to Euclid Prime will retain access to previously purchased content published through 2019 for all three journals.

The Politics of Boycotts

The Politics of Boycotts,” the newest issue of Radical History Review, edited by E. Natalie Rothman and Andrew Zimmerman, is now available.

“Boycotts exercise the one power that no state, no corporation, no military can prevent,” write the editors in their introduction, available free. “That is the power not to: not to buy from, not to work with or for. … It is a power of nonrecognition.”

Contributors to this special issue explore the global, entangled history of boycotts, from the original Captain Boycott of the Irish Land War and the Canadian opposition of apartheid in South Africa to the consumer activism movement against Coors beer in the late 20th century and queer engagement in the World Social Forum: Free Palestine.

What’s Next for Latinx?

We’re pleased to share “What’s Next for Latinx?”, the newest issue of Theater, edited by Chantal Rodriguez and Tom Sellar. Read the entire issue, freely available for three months.

With roots in protest and social change, Latinx theater carries an artistic vitality and urgency that has only been augmented by resistance to the current wave of repressive white nationalism. Even as U.S. agencies perpetuate inhumane policies and deplorable human rights violations against Latinxs, Latinx theatermakers continue to claim their places on America’s largest stages. In “What’s Next for Latinx?”, contributors ask where Latinx theater is going and what challenges it faces.
