Academic conference on Bob Dylan's lyrical works at Dartmouth College, August 11-13, 2006.
Previous conferences and symposia on Bob Dylan have addressed the complex composition of his works: their orientation toward (vocal, musical, live-concert, and/or recorded) performance; their links to and revisions of musical precedents; their social-historical significance; and Dylanís own status as a cultural icon. But the singular quality of his imaginative art clearly lies as much if not more in his songsí poetic density. The goal of the Dartmouth Conference is to give premier attention to this last side of Bob Dylanís works--in short, to offer variant critical interpretations of them, lashed firmly to close readings.
