Twelve authors, all of them affiliated with the UW School of Music, are featured in the six-volume Routledge World Music Pedagogy Series, set for publication in 2018 and 2019 and encompassing principal cross-disciplinary issues in music, education, and culture. A seventh volume on teaching world music in higher education is in development.
