[2012 UPDATE: This issue has been published and is available online:
The purpose of this issue is to offer readers insights into the challenges and opportunities that music educators meet as a consequence of living and working in societies that are becoming increasingly multicultural. Contributions may particularly examine such issues from the perspective of music learners. Articles dealing with music education and multiculturalism in Finnish or Scandinavian perspectives are of particular interest.
We welcome articles representing a variety of approaches and disciplines. Submissions for the publication are requested to be sent to Sidsel Karlsen (firstname.lastname@example.org) by October 1, 2009.
The Editorial Board will consider manuscripts written in the following languages: Finnish, English and Swedish. Articles written in a language other than English must include an English summary of maximum length 200 words. The articles are reviewed by an expert panel. For further instructions, please read the guidelines for contributors (below).
