Impost: A Journal of Creative and Critical Work
The cognitivist turn sparked a renewed interest in narrative analysis that extends beyond the study of literature. It has expanded across media such as film, graphic novels, video games, and music. This conference focuses on the study of narrative and narrativity in music. While some critics are convinced of music’s capacity for story-building, others consider the use of narrative theory derived from literary studies for the analysis of music unsuitable. This conference takes music’s narrative potential as its point of departure but recognizes that musical narrativity is scalar.

Reaching the Summit: Reimagining the Summit Series in the Canadian Cultural Memory
The year 2022 marks the upcoming fiftieth anniversary of the 1972 Summit Series. This hockey series, played between Canada and the former Soviet Union, has become the subject of Canadian cultural mythmaking since Paul Henderson’s winning goal for Canada during game eight. In Home Game: Hockey and Life in Canada (1989), Ken Dryden and Roy MacGregor identified the Summit Series as a uniquely “Canadian memory” and marked 1972 as a “coming of age” for Canada as a nation (195).

Issue 33: “After Douglas Crimp”
As an increasingly popular genre, true crime has enjoyed a fascinating surge in both academic and cultural interest over the last twenty years. As a relatively new academic discipline, scholars such as Mark Seltzer, David Schmidt, Tanya Horeck, and many others have published ground-breaking studies of the phenomenon of true crime and our various responses to it. However, the gap between popular culture’s interest in true crime and the burgeoning academic discipline remains wide, and True Crime Index invites reviews that seek to close this gap.
