Dr Schroeder contributed an article on ‘tone’ for the 1360 pages SAGE Encyclopedia, entitled "Music in the Social and Behavioral Sciences".
This Encyclopedia is considered the first definitive reference resource to take a broad interdisciplinary approach to the nexus between music and the social and behavioral sciences examines how music affects human beings and their interactions in and with the world. The interdisciplinary nature of the work provides a starting place for students to situate the status of music within the social sciences in fields such as anthropology, communications, psychology, linguistics, sociology, sports, political science and economics, as well as biology and the health sciences.
