Call For Papers


Jessica McKee and Michael Perez, Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University

Slated for publication by McFarland Press in Fall 2017, BILLIE 101: A Hundred and One Years of Lady Day, seeks abstracts for book chapters dedicated to the life, work and art of Eleanora Fagan, iconically known as (among other personae) Billie “Lady Day” Holiday. BILLIE 101 will speak to both scholarly and popular audiences. The anthology will include three sections: Performance (Vocal or Otherwise), History / Legacy (Will the Real Billie Please Stand Up), and Interpretations (film, print, and other media, social or otherwise). We encourage scholars, memoirists, and popular culture commentators willing to play with the image, the sound, and/or the history that continues to inspire the iconography of Lady Day. Chapters should make an argument about Billie’s songbook, historiography, or her fabulously mythical iterations. Chapters can also reflect the spirit of the jazz age, using improvisation to analyze how Billie was perceived, and how she continues to set an unequaled standard in the history of the recorded voice. Interested potential authors should submit a 350-word abstract by August 15, 2016 to Jessica McKee and Michael Perez at or
