Open Call for Papers

The journal invites submissions on an on-going basis. Standard articles should be in the range of 4000-6000 words. A more flexible approach may be possible for other formats and styles of submission but any deviation should be discussed with the editors prior to submission and contributors need to work within the existing journal design template (consult the free issue as an illustration of this). Themes might include:

*The pedagogical philosophy of somatics and how this might be seen to challenge or negate dominant approaches to learning and creativity

*The history of somatic practices

*The current application of somatics to dance/performing arts training and education

*The aesthetic implications of working with/from a somatic understanding

*The ‘body’ as a site of discourse in western culture, the influence of eastern cultures on notions of embodiment and how somatic practices challenge/collude with these ideas.

*The future of somatic practices - challenges, critique and connections with other disciplines.

More playful contributions are welcomed, particularly those that include images, but if a contributor has a particular idea in mind that might deviate from the template they must contact the editors first to discuss the possibilities and prior to submitting a contribution that is necessarily dependent on a lay-out that deviates from the template. 

All articles submitted should be original work and must not be under consideration by other publications.

Journal contributors will receive a free PDF copy of their final work upon publication. Print copies of the journal may also be purchased by contributors at half price.
