Becomings and Unbecomings: COVID-19 and New Narrative Trajectories
Call for papers: Routledge Companion to Popular Music and Politics of the Balkans
Edited by Catherine Baker
This companion or handbook seeks to provide a comprehensive introduction to the vibrant and interdisciplinary field of research into popular music and politics in the Balkans, explaining the state of key questions and debates which have shaped the field so far while also signalling the many new developments and directions that have emerged in response to recent political, socio-economic and cultural dislocations.
The Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies (CMRS) of The Ohio State University invites paper abstracts for our biennial celebration of Popular Culture and the Deep Past (PCDP), which will take place on February 11-12, 2022. The theme is “The Experimental Archaeology of Medieval and Renaissance Food.” Papers of approximately 20 minutes can be given in person or via Zoom.
Topics might include recipe books as literary texts, cooking and eating as social practices, and the pleasures and perils of recreating historic dishes. Speakers may also propose small-scale cooking demonstrations.
