Call For Papers
 
Conference Call for Papers: 'Locating Heavy Metal Music and Culture'
International Society For Metal Music Studies: 4th ISMMS biennial international Conference, 17-20 June 2019, Nantes (France)
 
Conference Call for Papers: 'Doing Metal, Being Punk, Doing Punk, Being Metal: Hybridity, Crossover and Difference in Punk and Metal Subcultures'
Punk Scholars Network 5th Annual Conference and Postgraduate Symposium, De Montfort University Leicester, 13–14 December 2018. Hosted by the Punk Scholars Network in conjunction with the International Society for Metal Music Studies, Punk and Post-Punk, Metal Music Studies, Media and Communication Research Centre and Intellect Books.
 

Metal Music Studies is explicitly multi-disciplinary and inter-disciplinary: embracing both musicological research and music theory about metal music, and social scientific and humanistic research about metal music as a genre. We are interested in original papers on metal music. We aim to receive contributions from researchers and theorists aligned with the subject field of metal music studies, but also researchers and theorists from other disciplines who feel that their interest in a form of popular music marginalizes them from the core debates in their discipline.


The journal consists of two sections: a main section for full papers; and a second section for shorter pieces, reflections and reviews.


We would be happy to receive contributions from scholars in the parent disciplines of music theory, musicology, aesthetics, music technology, performance, art, policy studies, politics, cultural studies, economics, pedagogy, sociology, linguistics, psychology, history, regional studies, theology, philosophy, and natural sciences. As well as new research and theory on metal music in all its forms, the journal will accept and commission shorter pieces from those involved in the metal music industry: journalists, label owners and other industry insiders, managers, musicians and fans.


Submissions


We are now accepting full papers for the main section of the journal. Please email manuscripts of no more than 8,000 words to the Principal Editor Professor Karl Spracklen at K.Spracklen@leedsbeckett.ac.uk. For submissions (book reviews and short pieces) for the second section of the journal, please contact Dr Niall Scott at nwrscott@uclan.ac.uk.
 

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.
