MUSIC AND POSTMODERN CULTURAL THEORY (AUSTRALIA)

CALL FOR PAPERS

International Conference
University of Melbourne
Australia
5-6 December 2006

Twenty years after the term "postmodernism" became common currency in
analyses of contemporary literature, architecture, visual arts,
philosophy and popular culture, we still find the editor of the recent
Cambridge Companion to Postmodernism (2004) lamenting "the strange
absence of a mature postmodernist discourse within music studies," and
suggesting that "the relative conservatism and autonomy of the world of
academic music study may account for its long resistance to
postmodernist formulations and arguments."

Iris Murdoch’s Scenes: An Anthology of Moral Imaginations

In this age of the Ethical Turn, considerations of Iris Murdoch’s work as
philosopher and novelist may be more important than ever. Her philosophical
influences and encounters, her vast literary production, her flashing insights
in interviews, all kept close faith with the value and mystery of the limited,
often eccentric, individual other and the difficult work of responsibly
encountering reality. As the Humanities engage with questions from the
geopolitical to the personal regarding the other, Iris Murdoch’s work presents one
model worthy of emulation, question, and adaptation to the concerns we face in
our present contexts.

Call for papers for a proposed special session for MLA '06 in

major world events such as the Second World War, the Sino-Japanese War,
the Chinese Revolution, the Korean War, U.S. imperialism, the American
Century, atomic bombs, the G.I. orphans are particularly welcome.
