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.

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."
