Appel à contributions – « Translating the Field. Music, Power, Praxis » – 15 mai 2024

Appel à contributions pour le projet de publication « Translating the Field. Music, Power, Praxis », sous la dir. de Susan Thomas, Nancy Yunhwa Rao et Michael Iyanaga.

« Objective

We invite scholars working at the multilingual intersections of music, sound, performance, and/or ethnography, to submit chapter proposals exploring translation, whether in theoretical or practical terms, especially concerning the politics, impact, and/or the potential of translation in our work.

We recognize translation as a complex process that risks altering, deforming, or distorting the living cultures, artistic products, and textual histories that we study. We thus take translation seriously, not only in calling attention to the often invisibilized process of its creation and the methodologies wrapped up in it, but also in questioning why we translate at all and what the potential ramifications of our translations might be.


Interested scholars should submit a 150-200 word statement of interest along with a 250 word abstract for a proposed chapter. Submissions, as well as any inquiries, can be sent to the editorial team at translatingthefield -at- The deadline for submissions is May 15, 2024.

Notifications of acceptance will be made by July 1, 2024.

Accepted scholars will be invited to attend an in-person symposium at the University of Texas at Austin (with travel and lodging covered) to present abbreviated versions of their chapters-in-progress and workshop with other authors. The event will take place Sept. 6-7, 2024.

Submission of completed chapters: Jan. 15, 2025 »
