Call for Papers: Journal of Dance and Somatic Practices

Issue 8.2, Open Call Issue (due for publication December 2016)

Deadline for Full Papers: 31 January 2016

Send submissions to editorial assistant Hetty Blades  ac1417 [@]

We invite submissions for the next open call issue, on topics in the field of dance and somatic practices.

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.

Standard articles will be in the range of 4000-6000 words. A more flexible approach may be possible for other formats and styles of submission but contributors need to work within the existing Journal design template (a free to view issue is available on the Intellect website as illustration). If a contributor wants to deviate from the template it must be discussed with Hetty Blades first and prior to submission.
