UPDATE: [American] SAMLA Special Session: Country Lyricists: Dark Country

Thomas Alan Holmes

This year, our special SAMLA session on country lyricists will explore the
many dark themes of country music. Submissions may range from the public
tribulations of natural disaster, grave accidents, and war to the private
tragedies of addiction, abuse, and obsession. Papers may follow a single
theme as addressed by many songwriters (i.e., “The ‘Burning Bed’ Scenario
in 1990’s Country Music”) or may focus on a single songwriter’s treatment
of a theme (i.e., “Porter Wagoner and Revenge Fantasy”). Authors should
remember that this session emphasizes the work of the lyricists and not
the performers of discussed pieces. Send to holmest_at_etsu.edu by June 15,
2008.

Dr Maartje Abbenhuis and Dr Sara Buttsworth

We are seeking offers to contribute to a collection, provisionally entitled: Monsters in the Mirror:
Representations of Nazism in Post-War Popular Culture. The collection aims to bring together an
interdisciplinary range of studies on the perennial fascination with all things ‘Nazi’ in the modern
world. As teachers of the history of Nazi Germany, we are astonished by the lack of critical
attention paid to the proliferation of Nazi symbols, Nazi culture, Nazi ideology, and
characterisations of Hitler in the post-war era. Nazidom remains an obsession for many even
though more than sixty years have passed since the demise of Hitler’s regime. The archetypal
