The Society for Ethnomusicology is pleased to announce the launch of Sound Matters: The SEM Blog . Hosted on the SEM website, the blog offers content on a variety of subjects related to music, sound, and ethnomusicology. SEM seeks lively and accessible posts that provide both stimulating short-form reading for ethnomusicologists and outreach to readers beyond the academy. We encourage authors to consider this forum a unique opportunity to transcend the boundaries of traditional print journals with brief works that integrate hyperlinks and multimedia examples. All content will be peer-reviewed.

The inaugural post for Sound Matters is "From Scholarship to Activism in Zimbabwe,” by Jennifer Kyker of the University of Rochester. In this multimedia document, Professor Kyker examines how music and dance are critical to the work of a non-profit organization in Zimbabwe called Tariro, which supports education for teenaged girls and HIV/AIDS prevention.

SEM greatly appreciates the work of the Sound Matters Editorial Advisory Board: James R. Cowdery, Chair ( RILM); Nilanjana Bhattacharjya (Arizona State University); Rachel Colwell (University of California at Berkeley); Sandra Graham (Babson College); and Frederick Moehn (King's College London).

For more information and guidelines for the submission of posts, please see the Sound Matters page in the Publications section of the SEM website.
