International Library of African Music Calls for Submissions to “African Music”

African Music, Journal of The International Library of African Music”, Vol 8, No. 1, Nov. 2007, Rhodes University, Grahamstown, South Africa

Call For Papers
From Diane Thram:

African Music, the peer-reviewed journal of the International Library of African Music, has been successfully relaunched with Volume 8, Number 1, (2007). This is a call for submissions for Volume 8, Number 2 (2008). The submission deadline is January 15, 2008.

Authors are asked to submit original, not previously published articles dealing with African Music and related arts as Word files formatted in compliance with Chicago Manual of Style guidelines. All illustrations must be numbered consecutively as Fig. 1, Fig. 2, etc. and submitted already formatted into the body of the article, unless other arrangements are made with the editor. Book, CD or film/DVD reviews are also welcomed. Send submissions as attachments via email to the editor at d.thram@ru.ac.za Inquiries are welcomed at this same email address.

Inclusion of a CD compilation of musical examples illustrating each article was an innovation with the 2007 edition of African Music that will be repeated with the 2008 issue. The 2008 issue is scheduled to appear in August 2008.

I welcome articles and reviews on all music with origins in Africa including contemporary eclectic styles. I urge you to consider contributing to this historic journal in the process of being re-invented to serve the community of scholars of African Music throughout the world. Please contact me via email if you have any questions regarding submission or if you wish to order a copy of Volume 8, Number 1 (2007).
