CALL FOR PAPERS: Punk NOW!! | 27/3/2015

Punk Scholars Network 2nd Annual Conference and Postgraduate Symposium

In Association with Birmingham City University, The Birmingham Centre for Media and Cultural Research and the London College of Communication.

 

CALL FOR PAPERS: Punk NOW!!

Following the dynamic emergence of punk in the UK, USA and Europe in the 1970s, the subculture spread widely. As punk and new wave gained commercial and critical success, together with an attractive notoriety, it soon began an ongoing journey around the globe – both as a product and as an ideology. Punk, then, despite its omnipresence in contemporary underground and popular cultures, is clearly more than legacy music. More than forty years after the proto-punk progenitors of Detroit and New York unconsciously launched an underground revolution, to continue what some of the 60’s and 70’s anarchic counter culture propagated, and after untold premature obituaries, it appears that punk – in terms of music, philosophy, and identity – remains in rude health.

Punk scenes continue to thrive as far afield as Russia, South America, India, Pakistan, China, Japan, Eastern Europe, Africa, the Middle East and Indonesia – 2011 saw the first official record release from a Saudi Arabian punk band, Sound of Ruby, while other scenes have established their mark in Madagascar, Algeria, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, even Tibet and the Himalayas. Meanwhile, nearer to home, an underground punk scene never actually went away and continues to ‘mutate and survive’– ranging from the continued support for longstanding bands and scenes, to the network of emerging small-scale gigs, fanzines, music distribution, (sub)cultural and political activities of a truly cross-generational subculture.

This joint conference and postgraduate symposium seeks to illuminate the current landscape of contemporary punk in all of its global, musical, political and (sub) cultural manifestations. Suggested topics include (but are not limited to)

·        International/national contemporary punk scenes and networks

·        Contemporary punk and politics

·        Contemporary punk and gender

·        Subcultural scenes, tribes and neo-tribes informed/influenced by punk

·        Contemporary punk identity

·        The Design and Aesthetics of Contemporary Punk

·        Contemporary punk fanzines and digital publishing

·        Ageing in a contemporary punk scene

·        The old and the new; inter/intra generational scenes, retro scenes, controversy and tensions.

·        Fan practices in contemporary punk;

·        Contemporary punk as resistance

·        Contemporary punk music: Musicology, performance, new genres and hybridization

·        Punk commodities and consumerism: From the role of the boutique to the online punk distro

·        Contemporary punk and digital media; digital production, distribution and consumption. DiY media, YouTube, social media.

·        Punk for Sale: New genres and hybrid musical developments in punk musical aesthetics

 

The programme will consist of keynote speakers (tbc) and a number of thematically grouped panels for both academics and postgraduates.  By creating a dual purpose to the conference the Punk Scholars Network aims to bring together established academics and the next generation of punk scholars in a supportive and colloquial environment, which we hope will encourage networking opportunities, ideas exchange and potential future research collaborations.

Post graduates and graduates can present work-in-progress papers on their PhD thesis, Master’s dissertation or graduate dissertation.

 

Alongside this the organisers plan to have an art exhibition exploring the visual identity of contemporary punk and live music from Birmingham’s resilient punk scene.

Each paper should last no more than 20 minutes and proposals should be submitted in the form of an abstract of c.250 words. All proposal submissions should also include:

§  Full title of the paper

§  Full name, contact details, 150 word biography and institutional affiliation

§  Your academic status-post graduate/graduate or ‘established’ academic (this is for the purpose of panel allocation)

§  Any requirements (projector, CD/DVD player, OHP, etc)

Deadline for receipt of proposals/abstracts is 31st June 2015

Proposals should be sent in the form of an abstract as an  e-mail attachment to matt.grimes@bcu.ac.uk  

The conference programme will be announced in September 2015.

It is intended that a book of conference proceedings will published

DIVULGANDO - Congresso sobre Heavy Metal

Helsinki, Finland, 8-12 June 2015 | 11/7/2014

http://www.modernheavymetal.net/


MODERN HEAVY METAL:
Markets, Practices and Cultures
 
International Academic Research Conference
HELSINKI * FINLAND
June 8-12, 2015
 
Hosted by:
Aalto University School of Business
 
Co-hosted by:
University of Helsinki; University of Turku; Sibelius Academy / University of the Arts Helsinki; Åbo Akademi University in Turku; Finnish Jazz & Pop Archive
 
In collaboration with:
International Society for Metal Music Studies (ISMMS)
 
 
BACKGROUND
 
Since its birth over 40 year ago, the music genre of heavy metal and hard rock has become not only a significant sub-culture but also an acknowledged subject for academic studies in various fields, even an interdisciplinary field of study in its own right. In the last few years, we have witnessed an increasing amount of events and publications in the metal academia, addressing the multiplicity of metal cultures, practices, and markets. The “International Society for Metal Music Studies” (ISMMS) and Metal Music Studies journal have also been established. In April 2013, the members of metal academia gathered in the “Heavy Metal and Popular Culture Conference”, hosted by the Bowling Green State University, in Ohio U.S. A decision was made there to bring the next main conference to Helsinki, Finland, the renowned metal capital of the Northern hemisphere.
 
Metal music has suffused to multiple directions, different markets and cultural layers – remaining marginal in some while enjoying mainstream success others. It has taken many forms, created a countless number of subgenres and representations, flirted and connected with other music genres and cultural products. Global and transnational communities have come into being simultaneously with the birth and development of local scenes. Moreover, the evolution of metal, as any other music genre, is impacted by the technological and economic revolution that has radically reshaped the forms of music production, delivery, consumption and culture – let alone the role of social media in communication, community building and fandom. Altogether, metal is embracing new fans and markets, creating new practices, forming new cultures, while treasuring the strong and polymorphous legacy of the genre. This brings along plenty of new challenges and opportunities for metal music studies in different genres.

The “Modern Heavy Metal” (MHM) conference will review, explore and discuss the current standing of metal; the plethora of its forms, cultures, practices, and markets. The conference will consist of research presentations, keynote speeches, industry/artist/media panels and other metal-laden program. In addition to the academic contents, the plan is to create close connections to the metal practice: the artists, their managers and other stakeholders, media, as well as the general metal audience. The event week will most likely include other metal entertainment spread over the evenings and the weekends.
 

 

CALL FOR PAPERS
Released on March 31 2014
 
To build up the academic program of the conference, we invite paper (and session) proposals from different fields of academic study to this interdisciplinary event. We are particularly interested in contributions shedding light on the markets, practices and cultures, faced by the metal practitioners and fans in the current multifaceted and global expression of heavy metal and its countless forms and sub-genres. The event is open not only for academics focusing on metal studies (in business studies, cultural studies, social sciences, humanities, musicology, arts, and other fields) but also for scholars from the wide range of popular music and popular culture studies. We warmly welcome also views from “the outside” to discuss and compare metal with other genres and cultural forms and helps in positioning metal in the bigger picture of cultural production and consumption.

The suggested themes include (but are not limited to):
 
  • Metal music industry and markets; global and local views, formation and structure of markets, entertainment and cultural industries
  • Metal management; strategic thinking, branding, visual communication in metal, metal export/import, leadership and roles, creative management
  • Metal practices; music, production, technology, performance, delivery
  • Metal cultures; fandom and fan communities, local communities, transnational/global communities, tribalism metal and social media, mainstream and subcultures, metal generations, gender and metal, artistic identity
  •  Form and philosophy of the metal genre
  • Sound and structure of metal music
  • Metal narratives, lyrics, and storytelling
  • Metal and belief systems, metal and religion
  • Politics, ethics and moral of metal
  • Artistic and aesthetic considerations; metal (in) art, metal representations, aesthetic experience, bodily experience
  • History, present and future of metal; transformations of the genre
  • Scope and methods of metal studies
  • Metal on the borderline; positions and connections of metal within the popular music and popular culture context
  • Various topics exploring the phenomena and representations of metal and related genres.
Alongside with more traditional research papers, novel and creative approaches to research are strongly encouraged. Theoretical reviews, practical case studies, conceptual studies, methodological papers, ethnographical reports, lyrical and visual analyses, qualitative and quantitative approaches, and various other forms and approaches are supported. With the long abstract and paper process, we hope that many new studies get ignited and completed for the conference.
 
Please note that the paper review process comprises two stages: abstract and full paper. Final acceptance is based on the full paper. Full papers will be included in the Conference Proceedings book (electronic and/or printed version) that will be launched prior to the conference.
