“I'd like to help you, son, but you're too young to vote,” the Congressman says in Eddie Cochran's “Summertime Blues.” Music, especially pop music, tends to anticipate politics — young people give a dress rehearsal of what's to come, building movements or prefiguring new worlds. No less powerfully, music is shaped by politics, from rules of copyright, drinking ages, and noise volumes to crises of war and social injustice, rents in the fabric. Music's connection to politics goes beyond sloganizing lyrics; it organizes, stirs, performs possibility.
For this year's EMP Pop Conference, we invite presentations that relate music, of any styles or era, to politics, however that's defined. Topics might include:
Individual proposals for 20-minute presentations should be 300 words, with a 75-word bio. For three-person (90-minute) or four-person (120-minute) panel proposals, include a one-paragraph overview and individual statements of 300 words with a 75-word bio. For roundtables, outline the subject in up to 500 words, include a 75-word bio for each panelist, and specify desired panel length. We welcome unorthodox proposals: ask for submission advice. Please include emails for all participants.
DEADLINE : November 8, 2016 to conference organizer Eric Weisbard (University of Alabama) at Eric.Weisbard -at- gmail.com.
