CFP: Technology and Private Music/Public Music

I am organizing a panel on "Technology and Private Music or Public
Music" for the upcoming 15th annual Kansas State University Cultural
Studies Conference on "Privacy" next March (March 9-11, 2006, in
Manhattan, Kansas).

Possible topics include the cultural impact of the iPod and other MP3
players, the super-miniaturization of music technology, the anonymous
"trading" of music over the internet, responses to or updates of Rey
Chow's landmark essay on the Walkman, the function or signification
of loud personal music in public places—for example, "boomboxes," car
stereos, leaky headphones, cell phones that play audible songs—etc.
