Call for Submissions - 17.1, "Music & Faith"

PUBLICATION ANNOUNCEMENT - SEM Student News 16.2 "The Writing Issue"

  We are delighted to announce the publication of SEM Student News Volume 16, Number 2, "The Writing Issue." This issue showcases ideas and approaches to writing in scholarship and daily life lived in, and influenced by, the written word, sound, and/or music. You can read the issue here and join the conversation on our Facebook page . Including articles that run the gamut from practical writing advice to philosophical contextualization to poetic construction and experimental autoethnography, we hope that there is something that will spark your interest in this issue, which also includes remarkable responses to their own past works by three established ethnomusicologists, Dr. Deborah Wong, Dr. Julianne Graper, and Dr. Tomie Hahn. I am absolutely staggered by the level of creativity and collaboration that has built up this issue, and I hope you enjoy reading it as much as we enjoyed putting it together! With best wishes, -ESC Eugenia Siegel Conte Editor,  SE
