Call for Papers

Intonations, a Journal of Interdisciplinary Arts, is currently seeking submissions for research articles from the Fine Arts, Humanities, and beyond.

Intonations, an online peer-reviewed graduate student run journal, is a joint project at the University of Alberta between the Department of Music, Department of Drama and the Department of Art and Design.

The objective of the journal is to promote multidisciplinary collaboration and to encourage dialogue between different modes of scholarly, artistic, disciplinary and professional engagement with a particular focus on the intersections of theory and artistic practice in various domains of the fine arts, humanities, and sciences. Our goal is to promote the work of current scholars and practitioners by generating dialogue, mutual understanding, and innovation, both locally and internationally.

Intonations is interested in submissions that address any aspect of fine arts history, theory, or praxis. Experimental, cross-disciplinary, and collaborative work and research in the areas of, but not limited to, popular and electronic music, voice, dance studies, theatre studies, performance studies and visual/sonic arts are welcome. We encourage submissions engaging with other forms: traditional research papers, multimedia projects with a substantial written component, and/or research-creation projects. We will also consider book and exhibition/performance reviews. Authors, critics, designers, artists, composers, and performers are encouraged to take advantage of the multimedia capabilities of Intonations to publish creative and scholarly works. We encourage submissions from graduate students, early career scholars, and independent researchers

The Journal publishes on a rolling basis. 

We accept submissions at any time.
