The Yale Journal of Music & Religion (YJMR) is published twice yearly by the Yale Institute of Sacred Music, an interdisciplinary graduate center that educates leaders who foster, explore, and study engagement with the sacred through music, worship, and the arts in Christian communities, diverse religious traditions, and public life.
YJMR is hosted by EliScholar, the Yale University Library institutional repository. YJMR accepts submissions of original, scholarly research on sacred music spanning such disciplines as music theory, musicology, ethnomusicology, ritual studies, religious studies, theology, and liturgical studies.

Call for Papers: YJMR Vol. 5, no. 2: Music, Sound, and the Aurality of the Environment in the Anthropocene: Spiritual and Religious Perspectives
Guest Editor, Kate Galloway (Wesleyan University)
YJMR invites articles for a special issue examining connections between music, sound, aurality, and the environment in global expressions of spirituality and religious activity. Examining how environments, places, and nature are approached as sites endowed with spiritual and religious significance, this issue focuses on the intersections of music, sound, religion, and the environment. Possible topics include: religious music that promotes environmental ethics and sustainability; nonhuman musicality and sonic agency; site-specific music used to voice religious perspectives; music and healing following environmental trauma; applied ethnomusicology and public musicology in environmental leadership and volunteerism; and the performance of religious music at environmentalist festivals, rallies, and protests. The submission deadline for completed manuscripts is September 1, 2018. Please contact guest editor Kate Galloway (kgalloway -at- wesleyan.edu) and editor-in-chief Jeffers Engelhardt (jengelhardt -at- amherst.edu) ahead of that deadline with questions about possible submission topics.
