Yale Journal of Music & Religion: Sound and Secularity

June 15, 2021

We’re excited to announce the publication of Vol. 6, No. 2 of the Yale Journal of Music & Religion (YJMR), a special issue titled “Sound and Secularity,” guest-edited by Margarethe Adams and August Sheehy. The issue examines secular soundscapes across religions, states, and cultures—from Moral Mondays and Beer & Hymns events in the U.S. to blendings of sacred and secular in Austrian, Omani, and Soviet contexts.
