Naxos Musicology International: new online journal launches 2019
Call for contributions (ongoing)
Naxos Musicology International, the latest in a series of projects by the well-known record label, is a new online platform for music scholarship in the broadest interdisciplinary sense. Much like a traditional journal, the platform seeks to promote and extend musicological work on a range of repertoires and scholarly approaches. In addition, we aim to engage with emerging trends in the music industry, exploring intersections between modes of listening, consumption and criticism (the so-called 'attention economy'), and ongoing technological developments.
At this early stage, we are issuing a call for three types of written submission:
• Articles: original research on any aspect of music, between 5,000 and 8,000 words (including footnotes).
• Syllabi: annotated lists of literature (between five and eight texts, including at least one recent publication) on a related theme.
• Opinion pieces: up to 3,000 words (preferably no footnotes) on given topics announced in advance. Topics for the first edition are: 1) The Future of Listening; 2) Ritual Musical Spaces for the 21st Century.
We welcome submissions – from scholars, students and music practitioners of all kinds – on an ongoing basis. Material can be illustrated with musical examples from the Naxos Music Library and will be read and peer-reviewed by the Editorial Board and, when necessary, external experts.
Our aim is to promote strong voices, informed critique and engaging writing in an approachable style that speaks across social, cultural and institutional barriers.
