Twentieth-Century Music, Cambridge University Press:
Special Issue on „Human Voice“
Planned Publication: 13/1 (Spring 2016)
Deadline: 30 April 2015
Following our special issue on Transcription (11/1, Spring 2014), the journal is planning a themed issue on the subject of the human voice, with a lead article from Steven Connor.
Articles (6,000-12,000 words) are invited exploring the voice in relation to twentieth-century music. Submissions are welcomed from any methodological perspective and/or in relation to any appropriate musical repertoire or practice, but priority will be given to those that speak to the broad readership of the journal. Topics may include (but are not limited to):
- ideologies of vocal sound/voice production
- new vocalities
- the relationship of human vocality to broader understandings of ‚voice‘
- technological mediations of the voice
- voice and language
- voice and its relation to inscription
- listening to voice
For consideration for inclusion in this special issue, articles must be submitted to tcm at cambridge.org by 30 April 2015. Decisions regarding publication will be made by 15 May 2015. Informal enquiries may be sent to the editors: Julian.Johnson at rhul.ac.uk and Robert.Adlington at nottingham.ac.uk or (for potential reviews of voice-related books) to the reviews editor: jason.stanyek at music.ox.ac.uk.
