Music Contingencies in Narrated Americas [update]; deadline Sept. 20

Saturday, June 19, 2010 - 10:49pm
NeMLA April 2011 New Brunswick NJ

The purpose of this session is to generate a forum for discussion and theoretical intervention among and within the musical and prosaic work of art. From Adorno to Nancy, the philosophical approach to music engendered a significant comparative debate with language, but can we still find a profitable assessment inside the sign-referent relation? Language follows a descriptive pattern in order to be expressive but, on the other hand, music creates a sort of impasse by articulating an emotional contour. In this sense, music and literature accompanied the euphoric condition that social and political changes developed in Latin America, especially during the first half of the 20th century.

Defiance College

I now have a dozen submissions and would like a few more by the July 15 deadline. I am especially interested in seeing more proposals on From Hell, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and Promethea.

Three presses have expressed interest following query letters. Read the below for full information on the collection.

With the publication of Lost Girls and 25,000 Years of Erotic Freedom, the centrality of love and sex in Alan Moore's work has become indisputable. Thus far, however, little scholarly attention has been paid to this facet of his work. This collection, provisionally titled Lost Loves: Why Men and Women Make It (or Don't) in the Work of Alan Moore, aims to remedy that situation.
