SU Blog Nomination

Greetings!

My name is Jeremy Reed and I am presently serving as the Chair of the Student Union of the Society for Ethnomusicology. I am writing to you, the student populous of SEM, on behalf of the Student Union to present a call for nominations (including self-nominations) for the position of Blog Editor.

The Student Union Blog (https://semstudentunion.wordpress.com/) is a fantastic forum for publishing student ideas and opinions in an easily accessible and year-round format. Beyond social media sites, the Student Union blog not only gives SEM members and ethnomusicologically-minded individuals a glimpse into Student Union activities, but also showcases ethnomusicology student ideas and conversations. Recent content series on the blog include: “Ethnomusicology and Parenthood”, “Snapshots from Fieldwork”, “In Discipline” [Ethnomusicology student-life around the globe]

We also plan on using the blog as a platform for a larger SEM Student Union project on fieldwork challenges and ethics.

This position is a great chance for those interested in editing/publishing. It also offers a fantastic opportunity for students to become involved in the Student Union and, by extension, the SEM at large. The responsibilities for the position are as follows:
