Call for submissions: Journal of Black Opera and Music Theatre
BORN is proud to announce the launch of the Journal of Black Opera and Music Theatre (J-BOM). We welcome submissions on opera and other forms of music theatre that center Blackness as a subject, methodology, identity construction, and/or critical lens. As a digital journal, we are excited to publish content in a variety of formats. The deadline for submissions for our first issue is 1 March 2024.
Who We Are
We’re a network of passionate people exploring complex questions
- wHow do we define Opera?
- wWhat constitutes Blackness?
- wWhy do we need to define Black Opera?
These questions have no easy answer and so, we approach them openly in dialogue with practitioners and scholars from a range of contexts, together with input from our community.
We invite you to join us as we explore the world of Black Opera in a global context.
Our active community collaborate in recommending a variety of resources as well as organising key events such as panel discussions, symposiums and much more.
