The Arena Concert: Music, Mediation and Mass Entertainment

updated: 
Friday, June 21, 2013 - 10:19am
Benjamin Halligan / University of Salford, Greater Manchester

The idea of live popular music as mass entertainment is one that presents an arresting series of challenges and remains mostly unexplored in contemporary academic writing. And yet, it would seem, arena concerts are coming to constitute the commercial future of popular music, and popular music is being shaped by this phenomena. We ask: what, then, is this phenomena? And what then are the challenges that have blocked a critical engagement with this phenomena?

Friday, June 21, 2013 - 8:00am

Generative Constraints is an interdisciplinary practice-based conference that intends to interrogate the politics, poetics and performativity of limitation and production. Organised by postgraduate researchers across departments of English and Drama at Royal Holloway University of London, the aim of this conference is to foreground practice as a means of exploration and creative criticality. Considering the place of limitation and constraint within artistic production, we invite subversion, intervention and adherence in the form of performances, workshops, durational works, screenings, installation pieces and academic papers.

Digital America - A new journal on digital culture and American life

updated: 
Thursday, June 20, 2013 - 4:07pm
Digital America

Digital America is a new online journal venture from the University of Richmond that seeks to publish exceptional student work. We believe that Millennials have a unique perspective on the impact of digitization. We also believe that student work is often left undiscussed both in the classroom in in the larger academic community. We are looking for essays, commentary, new media projects, short films, digital art, and documentary pieces that engage digitization and/or digital culture and American life. Our definition of "American" life is broad and includes the role of globalization on American culture.
