UNIVERSITY OF WESTERN ONTARIO
CALL FOR PAPERS
The Don Wright Faculty of Music at the University of Western Ontario requests submissions for the 2009 issue of Nota Bene. Authors must submit papers electronically by February 15, 2009.
Nota Bene is a professor-reviewed journal for musicology created specifically for undergraduate students studying at institutions internationally. We invite papers in the fields of historical musicology, ethnomusicology, popular music studies, and music theory that meet a high critical and rhetorical standard. We encourage submissions in both English and French. Professors are encouraged to forward this message to students. Information for authors and previous issues are available at www.music.uwo.ca/notabene.html
Nota Bene’s mission is to offer undergraduate students an opportunity to participate in an international academic discussion and publication process. The journal seeks to establish a community of young scholars across North America, to expose them to the work of their peers, and thus to nurture a lively discourse encouraging students to pursue musicological graduate work. In this way we hope to expose young music students to the diversity of this field. A list of our review panel is available through our website. We aim to provide participating undergraduate students with feedback from our external reviewers, particularly for those students intending to submit papers for graduate school applications. Nota Bene is committed to representing all undergraduate levels and will provide every submission with feedback from the review panel.
The editors may be contacted at: notabene at uwo.ca
We sincerely hope you will encourage your students to participate in this exciting project.
