Special Issue CFP: Voice, Media, and Technologies of the Sacred
Submissions close August 1, 2017
Yale Journal of Music & Religion invites articles that examine voice, media, and technologies of the sacred. Approaching voice through its sonic and material dimensions, this special issue will focus on the intersections of religion, media, and mediation with the poetics and infrastructures of sacred voice. Possible topics include the continuities and ruptures between “old” and “new” media in terms of sacred voice; the shaping of sacred voice through religious conventions, aesthetics, and technologies; media and the voicing of religious subjectivity and authority; the institutions and infrastructures of sacred voice; vocal identity, embodiment, and mediation; nonhuman or disembodied voices in religious texts and other media; and the role of individual and congregational voices in religious practice and mediation. Please contact editor-in-chief Jeffers Engelhardt with questions about possible submission topics: jengelhardt -at-
