2014 Conference Theme: "Individual, Community & Society: Conflict, Resolution & Synergy"

Abstract Submission Deadline: 15th May, 2014
Registration Deadline: 1st September, 2014

Conflict is an integral part of the human condition. The universal struggle between our personal selves – who we are as unique, separate and different from others, with our specific blend of experiences, abilities, attitudes, aspirations, needs and wants – and our social selves, intricately connected to, and interdependent on, others – our loved ones, our friends and favoured groups, our communities and cultures – leads inevitably to internal as well as interpersonal conflict.

Stability: International Journal of Security & Development

Over the course of the past two decades, interventions to end conflicts, prevent conflict recurrence and foster peace have been launched across the world. These have involved transitional administrations in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Kosovo and Timor-Leste as well as efforts aimed at countering insurgencies and gang violence in Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Colombia, Chechnya, Mexico and elsewhere. Research, policymaking and programming in this area has been on the rise. It has brought together militaries, multilateral institutions, national aid agencies, non-governmental organisations (NGOs), international financial institutions, regional development banks, charities, the private sector and others.

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."

RSA 2015 (Mar. 26-28), Music in Theory and Practice on the Early Modern English Stage

Early modern music theory was a complex web of intersecting ideas. Music was thought to be profoundly transformative for its listeners, entering through the ear and affecting the body, mind and spirit in ways that could be beneficial or destructive. It was deployed, too, as a metaphor for cosmic order, social stability and the health of the body and soul. But music was first and foremost a real sound in a real space, and the theatre in this period was unique in its capacity to place ideas about music into dialogue with its practice.
