CFP: Nick Cave (1/31/06; collection)

Tuesday, November 29, 2005 - 9:26pm

Cultural Seeds: new perspectives on the work of Nick Cave

Edited by Karen Welberry (La Trobe University) and Tanya Dalziell
(The University of Western Australia)

Rationale
Nick Cave is now widely recognised as a composer, curator, musician,
author, artist and screenwriter. From The Boys Next Door to The
Secret Life of the Love Song to author of the recently acclaimed
screenplay, The Proposition (2005), Cave's career spans nearly 30
years and has produced a comprehensive (and sometimes controversial)
body of work that has arguably shaped contemporary 'alternative'
culture. As such, an inclusive appraisal of Cave's work and its
significance is timely and necessary.

exappropriation, when applied to language, expresses the double move of how
language puts the human in place (hands it the qualities that are proper to it, appropriation) and at the same time
