    With kind regards,

    Call for Papers | Special Issue of *Notes* on “Digital Humanities and Music
    Pedagogy” | Deadline: September 18, 2020

    We invite submissions to a special issue of *Notes*
    ( entitled “Digital Humanities
    and Music Pedagogy” that will explore the current state of thought and
    practice at the intersections of the digital humanities and social
    sciences, music information, and graduate, undergraduate, and continuing
    education in music. The goal of this issue is to better understand the
    influence of digital methodologies on the formation of music researchers.
    To that end, we aim to explore current cross-disciplinary work where
    information specialists, technicians, ethnomusicologists and musicologists,
    theorists, performers, and composers strive in tandem to construct learning
    environments in which new questions, different interpretive angles, wider
    contextual frames, and humanizing influences are brought to the fore in
    musical study.

    We encourage the following types of submission:

    – Short, 2,000 to 4,000 word position papers on the ways in which the
    methods, techniques, and collaborative infrastructures of the digital
    humanities and social sciences further pedagogical work in music, in and
    outside of the academy
    – Research articles of up to 10,000 words exploring case studies, best
    practices, theoretical approaches, and critically examined experiments in
    digital methods and forms of presentation with students in music and music

    Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

    – Explorations of the implications of the digital humanities and social
    sciences for the current and future study of music
    – The intersections of the human and the digital in music study,
    including constructions of personal and social identity along the lines of
    gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, class, disability, religion,
    nation, and age
    – Examinations of labor equity, power, and precarity in digital
    humanities/digital musicological pedagogy
    – (Re)examinations of our approaches to music pedagogy and to the
    digital at moments of global or local crisis, trauma, and uncertainty,
    including the COVID-19 pandemic.
    – Digital humanities and digital social science in the music classroom
    as an incubator for student-, librarian-, or faculty-led digital projects
    – Challenges and obstacles to the adoption of digital modes of analysis
    and presentation among music students, scholars, and librarians, within the
    library or the academy
    – Digital pedagogical approaches that center student research questions
    and foster the creation of student communities of practice
    – Critical approaches to the curation, analysis, presentation, and
    preservation of music data and metadata that excavate and make manifest
    embedded assumptions and biases
    – Pedagogical explorations of models of music data and of music
    information systems that reveal the seams of their construction and the
    tensions of part versus whole

    Manuscript submissions are due *September 18, 2020*. Questions and
    expressions of interest may be sent to the guest editor, Francesca
    Giannetti, Digital Humanities Librarian at Rutgers University–New
    Brunswick, at For details on citations, figures, and
    formatting, please see “Information for Contributors”
