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.

Latinx Representation in Popular Culture and New Media
Editors: J. Jesse Ramirez (University of St. Gallen) and Anna Marta Marini (Instituto Franklin–UAH)
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).
