The conference originated in a project and subsequent publication on “Jazz in Germanlanguage Literature” (2013; K&N) and aims to broaden both the thematic and geographic scope of jazz in Europe in order to examine verbalizations of jazz in the 20th century up to the present. The conference strives to bring together recent research on jazz in Western and Eastern Europe, including countries formerly in the Soviet Union.
