Call for Submissions - 17.1, "Music & Faith"

This is the first call for submissions for the Spring/Summer 2021 issue of SEM Student News.  This new issue, vol. 17, no.1 , will focus on the theme of Music & Faith . While there are many resources that  explore the powerful and important interactions between music and religious practice, we seek to open up  this issue to expressions of faith and faith-based practice that occur both within and outside of religious  contexts, encompassing a broad field of belief, meditation/mindfulness, and ethics. Possible topics for sub- -missions include:   Music-making as a practice of embodied faith in self, other, shared community, philosophy,  or higher power Musical expressions of faith-fullness . Faith in structures, collaborators, mentors, and fields of study Faith in/trust of academia, students, and teaching strategies Defining and circumscribing musical expression in religious/faith-based practice Dynamics between faith communities and their music  Faithfulness in musical reproductio
