Over the past seventy years, neoliberal thinkers have strategically reinvented classical liberal ideals in order to privilege a sense of personal freedom over the perceived overreach of government intervention. Once considered a fringe movement, neoliberalism has steadily become the central tenet of American life. It is now nearly impossible, for example, to imagine any mainstream voice espousing tax hikes or championing the sorts of policies enacted under Franklin Delano Roosevelt or Lyndon Johnson. Promises of privatization today trump collective action in virtually every aspect of life.

Play a Song for Me: The Politics, Selectivity, and Power of Bob Dylan’s Live Performances

Description:

 

From his first major performance at Gerde’s Folk City in September of 1961, live performance has been a central part of Bob Dylan’s career.  More than the studio albums, Dylan’s concerts have provided him the opportunity to alter arrangements, change lyrics, and craft set lists further building his mystique as both artist and performer.  These variations and, at times, repetitions of or within the set lists, in particular, create their own text or texts ripe for analysis.

Constant transformation has been the norm in the new digital media environment since its inception. During the 2020 health crisis, the impact of this ever-changing digital world in our daily lives has been especially notable. Due to quarantine measures, the only opportunity to interact with friends and to consume culture was to rely on social networks, streaming services and video conferencing softwares. Web-based cultural activities have affected people’s relationships with cyberspace: many have visited museums, seen award ceremonies, and even been to concerts online. In other words, we are never disconnected from the Internet (DeNardis 2020).

Edited Collection on Adventure Time 

 

According to the AV Club, “over six seasons and 186 episodes (and counting), [Adventure Time has] blossomed into one of the most distinctive cartoons currently on the air.” With young male hero, Finn, and his dog, Jake, whose shapeshifting body gets them out of trouble and a colorful world of adorable characters and creatures, the stories appeal to children of all ages. Additionally, the political undertones make it very attractive to scholars and fans. 

This CFP requests papers applying theoretical concepts to different issues that have risen in the show:

-the absurd, the imagination

-bullying, intimidation, and torture
