The First World War was a truly momentous event. The rest of the 20th century would be shaped by this war and its consequence, the Second World War. The years 1914-1918 impacted decisively not only on the politics of anti-colonial resistance but also on the arts; in fact, the nascent movement of modernism gained considerable impetus because of the war. The First World War produced an unprecedented magnitude of devastation that left in its trail a frenetic search for new registers necessitated by the collapse of great truths. The Age of Empire had given way to automation, experimentation, and new schemas of drift and defamiliarization.

"What if there were, lodged within the heart of the law itself, a law of impurity or a principle of contamination?"
-Jacques Derrida, "The Law of Genre"
Unlawfulness, impurity, contamination: in the porous and scattered disciplines of gender, sexuality and diversity studies, these are the forces and strategies that impel our criticism and creation, the ethos of the fugitive journal Writing from Below.
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?
