Medieval Sound (1)CFP: Medieval Sound, Due 11/15/15


The editors invite short pieces on medieval sound and soundscapes!

The editors seek submissions for a special forum of Sounding Out!: A Sound Studies Blog ( with a theme of Medieval Sound. We welcome any piece dealing with the sound of the Middle Ages not exclusive to onomatopoeic, poetic, lyrical, or language sound. This special forum is not only about the sound of the Middle Ages, but also how various medievalisms utilize medieval sound in any of its forms. We especially encourage non-traditional presentations, as Sounding Out! is a digital multi-media platform; .wav files, images, and videos will be embedded in your work. Rather than a text-based article, contributors can also make a podcast!

Please pitch your idea to us in 250 (or less) of your best words by November 15th.

Send inquiries and submissions to Dorothy Kim ( or Christopher Roman ( by November 15th, 2015. Total word count of final post, due Feb 1st 2016, will be between 1200-1500 words. Decisions on programming are guided by a mission to explore the cultural politics of sound and listening in a wide variety of social contexts and editors actively seek out work from marginalized communities of scholars, artists, and performers. This forum is peer-reviewed and indexed by the MLA Bibliography.
