American music preservation
The fine folks who brought us Carry a Tune Week are offering to list scholarly projects at their website. The categories are still weird (see my critique at the carry a tune post): Shaker Music, Film Music, New England Music, Classical Composers, and Popular Songs. These categories have one religious topic, ignoring all other religions; one regional topic (which overlaps with the religious category), ignoring all other geographic regions of America; and still no Jazz, which remains the most significant American contribution to music. But if you are interested in having your research listed, or in seeing what research has been listed, go visit American Music Preservation.com.
