Women & Music: A Journal of Gender and Culture 

Posted: June 22nd, 2021 | Filed under: Calls for Papers | 1 Comment »

Women & Music: A Journal of Gender and Culture is now accepting submissions for volume 26 (2022). The journal is particularly interested in work that provides a critical perspective on music and/or sound, and in work that considers the role of gender, sexuality, race, citizenship, class, or other cultural and social factors in the production, circulation, historicization, or consumption of music. Women & Music is an annual publication, published by the University of Nebraska Press.

The journal welcomes stand-alone academic articles, as well as shorter, thematically-linked pieces, poetry, original artwork, and short scores or musical extracts that have not been previously published. Stand-alone articles are typically 6K-10K words; longer pieces may be considered in consultation with the editor. Scores should be no more than five pages long, and formatted to fit the 7 ¼” x 4 ¼” printed area of the journal’s pages. Musical contributions should be written by female-identifiying composers or address issues of gender or sexuality in some form.

Submissions should be sent by July 7th to WAM’s Editorial Collective at [email protected], which includes Lisa Barg (McGill University), Kimberley White (McGill University), and Vanessa Blais-Tremblay (Université du Québec à Montréal). Books for review should be sent to the Book Review Editor; for the mailing address contact Laura Risk (University of Toronto-Scarborough) directly at [email protected]

    My name is James Reeves and I am a second year PhD researcher at the University of Wolverhampton. I’m researching the works of Dolly Parton and her representation of women. I was sent an advanced copy of an upcoming poetry anthology devoted to Dolly called “Let Me Say This” and was asked to write a review.
    I am interested in knowing if your publication would be interested in my review, as this work is groundbreaking as the first published poetry anthology devoted specifically to Dolly Parton. Who is having massive career resurgence. I have been in contact with the editors of the anthology, and my PhD supervisor who recommended your publication for consideration. Please do let me know if this is something you would be interested in , and I would gladly send over my review.

    Also, if you’re interested in my research on Dolly Parton, my twitter handle is Dollyphdstudent, and my website is jamesreeveswriter.com

    I very much look forward to hearing from you,

    James Reeves

    PhD researcher at The University of Wolverhampton
