Edited volume of essays seeks original and unpublished
contributions cohering around the relationship between
literature and music, as well as its impact on the
dynamics of cultural and historical memory.

Possible subjects and approaches include: literary and
musical texts as inherited cultural or historical
artifacts; remembering, forgetting, re-invoking or
repeating the past through popular, middle brow,
elitist, or avant-garde literary or musical forms or
modes of performance; writing and re-writing cultural
or national histories through music and literature;
indivdual and collective memories and their
inscription in "lieux de memoire"; memorializing the
lost or mourning the past in literary representation
and musical expression; and so on.

Comparative essays are welcome and highly desired.
Contributions that are selected for inclusion will be
thematically unified and cohere together as if they
were written as chapters of a book.
