The SEM Board has appointed Richard Wolf as General Editor of Ethnomusicology Translations, the Society's new peer-reviewed, open-access online serial for the publication of ethnomusicological literature translated into English. Dr. Wolf is Professor of Music and South Asian Studies at Harvard University; the author of The Black Cow's Footprint: Time, Space and Music in the Lives of the Kotas of South India (2005); and the editor of Theorizing the Local: Music, Practice and Experience in South Asia and Beyond (2009). Professor Wolf brings to Ethnomusicology Translations wide-ranging linguistic and editorial expertise and a strong commitment to working with ethnomusicologists throughout the world.

Ethnomusicology Translations will focus on influential articles from journals and edited book collections published during the past 20 years in any language other than English. Translated articles will be published online as they become available, through a partnership with Indiana University Libraries' Scholarly Communications Department. As a central online resource, Ethnomusicology Translations will increase access to the global scope of recent music scholarship and advance ethnomusicology as an international field of research and communication.

At present, SEM is establishing an Ethnomusicology Translations Editorial Committee and developing guidelines for the selection, translation, and publication of articles. Individuals interested in serving as translators or assisting with the project in other capacities should contact Stephen Stuempfle, SEM Executive Director, at semexec@indiana.edu.
