Broken narratives abound in literary and cultural history. Serialized literary works, serial television, fragmented novels, and shuffle literature are among the many forms that use brokenness as a resource for unfolding narratives. The eclectic nature and the many avatars of "broken narratives" make them valuable sites for comparative studies. Arguably, brokenness remains integral to certain textual forms more than others: Segmentation and sequentiality, for instance, are identified as key to the comic form (McCloud) as well as narrative poetry (McHale; DuPlessis) and television series (O'Sullivan).

SPECIAL ISSUE: GLOBAL NIGHTLIFE CULTURES

THE JOURNAL OF POPULAR MUSIC STUDIES invites submissions for a special issue on global nightlife cultures. There's a myth that to be interested in nightlife -- to party, to seek pleasure in the night, to devote oneself to a club scene and its music -- is to somehow be less concerned with the more "serious" aspects of everyday life. After all, how can you feasibly go to work tomorrow if you've been out until 6 a.m. or later? Ears ringing from pounding dance music. Club stamps still visible on your wrists. Isn't it better to stay at home, safe in the bosom of domesticity and fully tucked away from the ribald dangers and creatures of the night?
