SEM Student News is an official, biannual publication of the Society for Ethnomusicology created and run by students. In cooperation with the SEM Student Union, we aim to voice current student issues and ideas, and to provide useful, relevant information for students conducting music research. Most of all, this newsletter is a forum for students to communicate with their peers, and to start addressing the issues that we face together.
Latest Issue: Volume 10: Music and Diaspora
Previous issue: Volume 9: Medical and Cognitive Ethnomusicology
The Fall/Winter 2015 issue of SEM Student News (Volume 11) will focus on the trajectories of Music Education and Ethnomusicology. As music departments around the country work to broaden and strengthen their training of musicians in the 21st century, we hope that this volume will highlight some of the issues of and possibilities for integrating music education pedagogy and ethnomusicological studies. In addition to contributions from our staff we are looking for submissions from students and professionals that engage in these exciting endeavours.
We are accepting submissions for Volume 11 in the following capacities:
- original photography related to topic of the issue
- student submissions (c.150-200 words) for our "State of the Field" column [discussing personal experience and research strategies in combining music education and ethnomusicology]
- student articles/editorials (c. 500-750 words) [on issues or case studies of combining music education and ethnomusicology]
- professional submissions either for our "Dear SEM" column (c. 250 words) or individual editorials (c. 500-750 words) [on issues and advice on combining music education and ethnomusicology]
Those planning on submitting a piece, please contact the editor at firstname.lastname@example.org. We also welcome any other ideas, comments, and questions. Submissions should be formatted in Chicago Manual of Style, 16th edition, in author-date style. Files should be submitted in .docx (text) or .jpg (photography) formats and received no later than October 2, 2015.
