The Bridge is the Journal of Jazz Studies's space for non-traditional forms of jazz scholarship. In the spirit of the 1962 Sonny Rollins album of the same name, we welcome submissions and proposals that explore alternative ways to think about, with, and through jazz, or that address its most urgent issues. We welcome reflections, discussions, provocations, and commemorations, as well as creative and speculative writing, oral histories, photo and sound essays. The Bridge celebrates work that is experiential and experimental, polyrhythmic and polyvocal, collaborative or community focused, interdisciplinary or even undisciplined.
The Institute of Jazz Studies seeks manuscript submissions and proposals for 2022 issues of the Journal of Jazz Studies.
We are pleased to announce that Dr. Sean Lorre (Ph.D., Musicology, McGill University; M.A., Jazz History and Research, Rutgers-Newark) has been appointed as the new Managing Editor of the Journal of Jazz Studies effective March 7, 2022.
