CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS
DEADLINE: 31 OCTOBER 10
We would like to announce the establishment of the new electronic journal under the title HEJMEC (Hellenic Journal of Music, Education and Culture)
HeJMEC is an international open-access and peer reviewed journal devoted to critical study and critical analysis of issues related to the fields of Music, Education, and Culture.
HeJMEC draws its contributions from a wide community of researchers. Its reach is international since we want the publication to reflect a wide variety of perspectives from disciplines within the fields of music education and musicology. The journal is concerned with the dissemination of ideas relating to theoretical developments in the above fields and welcomes cross - and inter- disciplinary contributions of research and literature in the areas of music, education and culture.
Music and Education: The wide range of topics includes various aspects of music education (pedagogy, history, philosophy, sociology, psychology, technology, and aesthetics) addressing vocal, instrumental, general music at all levels, from early childhood through adult and comparative studies. Education is interpreted in a broad sense including all aspects of teaching and learning within formal and informal contexts (such as, musical development; socio-cultural issues; creativity; gifted and talented students; special needs; community settings; teachers’ professional development; curriculum design; assessment) in order, additionally, to challenge established accounts of music education policy-analytic methods and to explore alternative approaches to policy-making. Music and Culture: Our aim is to provide essential reading on different aspects of the study of music from a cultural point of view (ideology, music and words, music and society, music and postmodernism, music and genre,and so forth); also, to relate them with educational issues (music cultural policy, the learning process, the relationship to educational institutions, and so forth). The journal thus offers a unique forum for researchers to develop views on music as a social and cultural product, as part of human behaviour and in relation to broadly perceived educational issues at the leading edge of musical and multidisciplinary scholarship.
Every issue will include articles on the topics, case studies and book reviews. Articles in Greek or English will be accepted.
We welcome submissions for our forthcoming issues. The deadline for submissions for our next issue is 31/10/2010.
