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

full name / name of organization: 
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."

Jeremy Braddock, in his Collecting as Modernist Practice, argues that the material collection and the anthology both be considered as an "authored work" and, following Bourdieu, a "system of positions." The history of collecting and publishing in the 20th century – from Peggy Guggenheim to the Harry Ransom Center in Austin, TX – illustrates a widespread development and framing of how literary and cultural materials are received. Publishers, editors, librarians, and curators have all played a fundamental role in authoring and shaping the reception, preservation, and influence of textual and cultural objects.
