Under the sponsorship of the American Institute for Verdi Studies, the Verdi Forum has published essays, documents, and conference proceedings, which have contributed meaningfully to the scholarly literature on Verdi. The journal is a peer-reviewed publication, edited by Roberta Montemorra Marvin, with associate editors Andreas Giger and Steven Huebner and assistant editor Francesco Izzo, as well as an editorial board of international scholars who, along with external readers, review articles under consideration. The contents of the previous two double issues are listed below; the next double issue is scheduled for publication in mid-2009.
Submissions to Verdi Forum may be made electronically (as an e-mail attachment in a word-processing file readable by Microsoft Word for Windows) or (if necessary) in paper copy (three copies); if the proposed article contains musical examples, diagrams, or other visual material, these are to be sent in paper copies. Bibliographic citations should follow the Chicago Manual of Style, 14th ed. All submissions should include full contact information, including an e-mail address. The editor will also be happy to receive offers to review books, editions, and recordings of exceptional historic or aesthetic interest. Questions may be directed to the editor: Roberta Marvin (roberta-marvin at uiowa.edu). The address for paper submissions is Roberta M. Marvin, University of Iowa, Obermann Center, Oakdale Hall N130, Iowa City, Iowa 52242. For information about subscribing, visit the AIVS website: www.nyu.edu/projects/verdi.
