Commonalities: Imagining the Ordinary (September 23-24, 2011)

Tuesday, April 12, 2011 - 4:38pm
Rice University Department of English

The annual Rice University Symposium in Houston, Texas invites papers that examine the unexpected material and affective supports of the common, commons, and community. Papers might explore representations of communities as they develop across spatial and temporal boundaries as well as how shared background understandings connect to the experience of the ordinary. We are especially interested in how these issues relate to the question of the commons and the role collective life plays in various social imaginaries. Submissions that range across periods, theoretical orientations, and disciplines are welcome.

Possible paper topics:

"Contemporary Music"

This session, the only music session at PAMLA, calls for papers which critically engage with any and all types of contemporary music and either the effects of music on society or how society inspires the creation of music.
