New Periodicals


Hansen, Lindsay, Notes


This semiannual column selectively lists new periodicals; describes their objectives, formats, and contents; and provides information about special issues, title and format changes, mergers, and cessations. The following resources were frequently consulted when assembling this column: International Index to Music Periodicals (IIMP; http://www.proquest.com/en-US/catalogs/databases/detail/iimp_ft.shtml), Music Index (MI; http://www.ebscohost.com), RILM Abstracts of Music Literature, (RILM; http://www.rilm.org), OCLC Worldcat and Ulrich's Periodical Directory (http://www.ulrichsweb.com/ulrichsweb/). All Web sites were accessed on 12 March 2012 unless otherwise specified.

NEW TITLES

South African Dance Journal. Edited by Gerard M. Samuel, Rob Baum, and Danie Fourie. University of Cape Town. Published biennially. Vol. 1, Issue 1 (Winter 2011). ISSN 2223-8425 (print). Print format. Subscriptions or inquiries: Angie Pearson, Administrative Assistant (School of Dance), Private Bag X3, Rondebosch 7701, South Africa. E-mail: angie.pearson@uct.ac.za. $25.00 individuals or institutions (print only).

South African Dance Journal is a peer-reviewed journal that examines "dance academic voices in South Africa, Africa, and the international community." The launch of the journal deliberately coincided with the international dance conference CONFLUENCES that is hosted by the University of Cape Town. Although the editorial board states that each issue will have no more than six articles, the debut issue features eight articles plus two editorials. The journal may not hold immediate appeal for non-dance scholars; however, many articles include some research related to music. Although most of the advisory board is based in South Africa, three members are affiliated with American universities.

The articles range from masculinity in western (South African) dance, improvisation instruction at the University of Stellenbosch (South Africa), and dance as obesity prevention.

Authors are instructed to submit articles in English or indigenous South African languages of up to 5,000 words including up to five black and white illustrations.

Unfortunately, no biographical or institutional information is provided for any of the contributors and as the journal is so new and clearly a grassroots effort, it is neither indexed nor abstracted in any databases. As of March, 2012, it was not included in Ulrich's. This journal has the potential to complement existing performing arts research and call attention to South Africa's burgeoning dance scene.

ELECTRONICA
