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.

Please see About this Journal for a full explanation of the journal's aims and scope. Articles on any topic relating to music and religion will be considered for our general issues appearing each year. If you have any questions, please contact the editors.

CFP: YJMR Vol. 4, no. 1: Voice, Media, and Technologies of the Sacred

YJMR invites articles that examine voice, media, and technologies of the sacred. Approaching voice through its sonic and material dimensions, this special issue will focus on the intersections of religion, media, and mediation with the poetics and infrastructures of sacred voice. Possible topics include the continuities and ruptures between “old” and “new” media in terms of sacred voice; the shaping of sacred voice through religious conventions, aesthetics, and technologies; media and the voicing of religious subjectivity and authority; the institutions and infrastructures of sacred voice; vocal identity, embodiment, and mediation; nonhuman or disembodied voices in religious texts and other media; and the role of individual and congregational voices in religious practice and mediation. Please contact editor-in-chief Jeffers Engelhardt with questions about possible submission topics: jengelhardt-at-amherst.edu. (Submissions close August 1, 2017.)
