CORRUPTIBLE SEED: Literary, Political, and Historical Perspectives on Bob Dylan
Kwantlen Polytechnic University, Richmond B.C., September 22-23, 2017
Bob Dylan, who was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature in November 2016, is one of the seminal figures of contemporary culture. Aligning with the 50th anniversary of his landmark album John Wesley Harding, this conference will explore perspectives on Dylan’s work from a variety of disciplines. Proposed papers should deal with any aspect of Dylan’s career and oeuvre, whether from a political, historical, or literary standpoint. More musicological analyses are also welcome.
