[UPDATE] “Catastrophe and the Cure”: The Politics of Post-9/11 Music (Deadline July 1, 2009)

full name / name of organization: 
Anthology Theorizing Post-9/11 Music
contact email: 
post911anthology@gmail.com

In current debates about the War in Iraq, it has become commonplace for politicians and journalists to conjure the specter of the Vietnam War as a means of quantifying the impact of the current war in American culture and throughout the world. Surprisingly, though, few have scrutinized these comparisons to examine the differences between the popular music of the Vietnam era and the music of the current post-9/11 era. While the Vietnam era found countless bands and musicians responding in protest to that war, there has arguably been a significantly smaller amount of contemporary musicians who have taken overt stances, in their music, about the politics of post-9/11 life, in America and elsewhere.

_“Catastrophe and the Cure”: The Politics of Post-9/11 Music_ is the title of a proposed anthology examining “post-9/11” music. Abstracts are sought for articles attempting to theorize what post-9/11 music is, if such a category can be said to exist, and what political action it takes (or needs to take), if any. Proposed articles should be theoretically engaged and should be written with an academic readership in mind. Of particular interest are abstracts that seek to extend discussions of post-9/11 music beyond the bands/musicians/albums—U2, _The Rising_, The Dixie Chicks, Toby Keith, etc.—typically associated with 9/11.
We are especially interested in abstracts on the work of underrepresented groups, such as non-white, LGBT, female, non-western, etc. bands and musicians. Topics may include, but are not limited to, the following:

"Utopian Spaces of British Literature and Culture, 1890-1945"
18 September 2009
University of Oxford

***NOTE: The deadline for submission of abstracts has been extended until 15 July. Registration will open after this date; the registration form will be available for download on the conference website.***

From the fin de siècle to the Second World War, the construction of alternative social and private spaces exerted a peculiar fascination for many British writers. The cataclysmic historical events of the period stimulated Utopian thinking and feeling even as they seemed to make them problematic or impossible. At the same time radical demands for new spaces, whether political, religious or aesthetic, also generated new ways of reading and writing the familiar urban and domestic spaces of everyday life.

The focus of the conference is on the spatial manifestations, geographies and practices of Utopianism, rather than on Utopianism as a category of millenarian anticipation. Papers are invited which address the various material and imaginary spatial forms of the Utopian impulse in the literature of period. How do certain spaces become associated with particular political or aesthetic visions of modernity? Does the Utopian bear a particular affinity to some spaces, rather than to others? Is the Utopian impulse articulated as a desire for order or anarchy?

Please send an abstract of no more than 250 words in length, including your name, position and institutional affiliation to utopianspaces@ell.ox.ac.uk. Deadline for submission: 15 July 2009.

Plenary speakers: Professor Jay Winter (Yale); Dr Matthew Beaumont (UCL); Iain Sinclair (London)
