[UPDATE] CFP: Edited Collection on Bruce Springsteen for Routledge Studies in Popular Music Series

Bill Wolff / Rowan University

I am soliciting abstracts by scholars from all disciplines, including scholar-fans and fan-scholars, to be considered for inclusion in an edited collection on Bruce Springsteen, which will eventually be submitted to Routledge's Studies in Popular Music series. The editor of this series has expressed an interest in seeing a Springsteen collection proposal.

In the middle of Bruce Springsteen's 2012 Wrecking Ball tour promotional interview with the Paris media, one reporter observed, "so many people these past couple years look to you for your interpretation of events… . Look at us: when we were waiting for you earlier, so many people care about what you think, and what you feel about what is happening in the world."

The Golden Age Westerns / Deadline for abstracts June 1, 2014

The 2014 Film & History Conference, Madison, WI, 29 Oct to 2 Nov 2014

From the late 1920s to the mid-1960s, the Western genre underwent a series of surprising transformations, experiencing a decline, a rebirth, and finally, its Golden Age. From highly successful traditional "oaters" and musical "horse operas," Westerns developed into complex, "revisionist" forms during the Cold War that included the noir Western, the cult Western, and the Spaghetti Western. At the same time, the Western also dominated the small screen, its popularity peaking in 1959 when 26 shows were aired on television.

2nd Global Conference: Fan Communities and Fandom (November, 2014: Prague, Czech Republic)

2nd Global Conference: Fan Communities and Fandom

Friday 7th November – Sunday 10th November 2014
Prague, Czech Republic

Call for Presentations:
The words 'fan' and 'fandom' often conjure up images of screaming groupies, sports supporters adorned in the colours of 'their' team, die-hard messageboard participants and even stalkers who perpetrate actual violence against the object of their fannish desires. Whether viewed as a positive or negative cultural force, fandoms represent participatory communities that are so thoroughly inscribed within our social fabric, and integral to the way many individuals understand their identity, that it warrants holistic study in an interdisciplinary context.
