Journal of Interdisciplinary Voice Studies (Journal)

ISSN 20570341 , ONLINE ISSN 2057035X

The Journal of Interdisciplinary Voice Studies provides a peer-reviewed forum for scholarly and practice-based engagement with voice as a phenomenon of communication and performance, and a methodology or metaphor for analysis. Through an interdisciplinary negotiation of philosophy, practice and pedagogy, the journal draws from such disciplines as cultural studies, performance studies, inter-culturalism, linguistics, visual culture, musicology and somatics.

Journal of Interdisciplinary Voice Studies (JIVS) provides a forum for scholarly and practice-based engagement with voice as a phenomenon of communication and performance, and a methodology or metaphor for analysis. The journal draws on an interdisciplinary series of lenses, including cultural studies, critical theory, performance studies, inter-culturalism, linguistics, visual culture, musicology, architecture and somatics. One issue in each volume will follow an explicitly thematic focus.

Regular guest-edited editions will enable the community of voice scholars to be represented through a international and multi-disciplinary forum.

This double-blind peer-reviewed journal is produced in association with the Centre for Interdisciplinary Voice Studies, a collaboration between Voice Studies scholars at the University of Exeter and the University of Portsmouth.

Notes for Contributors Download


All articles submitted should be original work and must not be under consideration by other publications.

We invite submissions that contribute to an interdisciplinary conversation on the idea of voice, welcoming contributions from all fields of voice work including teaching, performance, qualitative/quantitative research, practices and theories of voice.

One issue in each volume will follow an explicitly thematic focus. Regular guest-edited editions will enable the community of voice scholars to be represented through a international and multi-disciplinary forum.

We draw on an interdisciplinary series of lenses, including cultural studies, critical theory, performance studies, inter-culturalism, linguistics, visual culture, film and media studies, musicology, opera studies, ethnomusicology, architecture, sociology, education and somatics, and in so doing, contributions might engage with – but are not restricted to – one or more of the following areas:

  • Voice as methodology
  • Voice as ideology
  • The (dis)embodied voice
  • Voice as presence/absence
  • Somatics and voice
  • The aesthetics of silence and/or sound
  • Ventriloquism and puppetry
  • Voice and logos
  • Voice and critical theory
  • Voice and spatiality
  • Voice and ‘authenticity'
  • Voice and/as/in adaptation
  • Voice in/as/of training (singing, speech, performance)
  • The speech/song continuum
  • Praxis of working with voice
  • The lexicon of training
  • Vocal health
  • Teaching vs. pedagogy
  • Styles and genres
  • The voice on stage/film/performance/new media
  • Digital/electronic media and the voice
  • Intercultural aesthetics of vocal practice
  • Voice training in conservatoire/Higher Education
  • The voice and gender/race/culture/politics/community/commodification
  • Practitioner-led critical reflections (own work)
  • Documenting the voice
  • Voice in practice
  • Historical approaches and practices of vocal performance
  • Notational practices for writing for voice
  • Extreme/extended voice
  • Voice in theatre, music, opera, musical theatre
  • Voice in sound art, performance art and sonic experimentation
  • Digitized, mediatized and posthuman voices
