Intonations Call for Papers


We are pleased to announce the new Call for Papers of Intonations Journal. This is our first CFP since the new running of the Journal as a collaboration between the Departments of Music, Art and Design, and Drama at the University of Alberta.

The objective of the journal is to promote multidisciplinary collaboration and to encourage dialogue between different modes of scholarly, artistic, disciplinary and professional engagement with a particular focus on the intersections of theory and artistic practice in various domains of the fine arts, humanities, and sciences. Our goal is to promote the work of current scholars and practitioners by generating dialogue, mutual understanding, and innovation, both locally and internationally.

Intonations is interested in submissions that address any aspect of fine arts history, theory, or praxis. Experimental, cross-disciplinary, and collaborative work and research in the areas of popular and electronic music, voice, poetry, dance, theatre, performance studies and visual/sonic arts are welcome. We encourage submissions engaging with other forms: traditional research papers, multimedia projects with a substantial written component, and/or research-creation projects. We will also consider book and exhibition/performance reviews. Authors, critics, designers, artists, composers, and performers are encouraged to take advantage of the multimedia capabilities of Intonations to publish creative and scholarly works. We encourage submissions from graduate students, early career scholars, and independent researchers, with an aim to encourage international dialogue and cooperation.   

We publish on a rolling basis and accept submissions at any time.
