CFP: Nick Cave (1/31/06; collection)

Cultural Seeds: new perspectives on the work of Nick Cave

Edited by Karen Welberry (La Trobe University) and Tanya Dalziell
(The University of Western Australia)

Nick Cave is now widely recognised as a composer, curator, musician,
author, artist and screenwriter. From The Boys Next Door to The
Secret Life of the Love Song to author of the recently acclaimed
screenplay, The Proposition (2005), Cave's career spans nearly 30
years and has produced a comprehensive (and sometimes controversial)
body of work that has arguably shaped contemporary 'alternative'
culture. As such, an inclusive appraisal of Cave's work and its
significance is timely and necessary.
