Aims & Scope


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.
