Abstracts and papers are sought for a new book that will examine the world of reviewing and criticism in the media of all artistic performances and representations.
The goal of this collection would be to unite both scholars and professional critics into dialogue and conversation about the role of the review in the contemporary appreciation of the arts. All methodologies and critical approaches are welcome. Papers that identify trends, explore reviewing techniques and lend definition to new and emerging art forms are especially invited.
Topics may include, but are not limited to, the following:
The role of the review in arts marketing and promotion;
The phenomenon of Oprah’s Book Club;
The role of the contemporary critic;
Ethnic voices and talents in the arts—how are they being received?
The role of Awards ceremonies as arbiters of artistic quality and profitability;
Assessing the newspaper review section – is it dying or revitalizing?
Is the era of the "great critic" dying?
Presence and absence of arts reviewing on the radio and television
Reviewing culturally-defined arts for international audiences
How interactive media can influence the review of the arts.
