“Catastrophe and the Cure”: The Politics of Post-9/11 Music (Deadline May 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. Topics may include, but are not limited to, the following:

Territories of Thought - theory@buffalo (Journal, Issue 14; 9/1/09)

full name / name of organization: 
theory@buffalo
contact email: 
lam1jd@gmail.com

Territories of Thought

The slogan “Land and Freedom” articulates a relationship between territory and thought; it suggests the interpenetration of materiality and philosophy. It is our claim that freedom – the central concept of political thought as such – is fundamentally predicated on the tension between the materiality and the mythos of land. Further, “Land and Freedom” suggests the spatial and republican underpinnings of a particular political ontology, one that resonates, for example, with “territory and desire” in Deleuze and Guattari and “world and Being” in Heidegger. What, then, is the relationship of this spatialized political ontology to new forms of territorial organization wrought by neoliberal and neocolonial policies? From structural adjustments to special economic zones (SEZ’s), from resource wars to private investment in third-world agriculture, the massive force of accumulation and capitalization indicates the emergence of a new class of spaces secure for the techno-political logic of capitalism. Within the space of this logic, what remains of freedom? Of philosophy?

We welcome all papers dealing with the spatial articulation of political/philosophical concepts. Possible topics might include: relations between property, territory, and law; old and new spaces of capital; territory and violence; the spatial unconscious of philosophical concepts; topographies of subjectivity; political ontology; cognitive mapping; any number of post-structural concepts from territorialization to geophilosophy, from mondialisation to dissemination; Lefebvre and post-Lefebvrian Marxism, including Situationist psychogeographies and the space of the spectacle; Foucault and geography; primitive accumulation and the dispossession of land; the “camp” as biopolitical paradigm; critical reflections on border studies and so-called globalization.

Submissions are welcome from any disciplinary field, including social theory, literary studies, political theory, philosophy, geography, postcolonial studies, architecture, cultural studies, media studies, etc.
theory@buffalo also accepts book reviews. These can be on any topic and must be 1,200 words or less. All other submissions must be 10,000 words maximum. Please send two blind copies with a cover page to the address below, or send an electronic copy as an attachment in Microsoft Word to: lam1jd@gmail.com or prc3@buffalo.edu, RE: theory@buffalo 14.

All submissions are due September 1, 2009.
