Edited volume of essays seeks original and unpublished contributions cohering around the relationship between literature and music, as well as its impact on the dynamics of cultural and historical memory.
Possible subjects and approaches include: literary and musical texts as inherited cultural or historical artifacts; remembering, forgetting, re-invoking or repeating the past through popular, middle brow, elitist, or avant-garde literary or musical forms or modes of performance; writing and re-writing cultural or national histories through music and literature; indivdual and collective memories and their inscription in "lieux de memoire"; memorializing the lost or mourning the past in literary representation and musical expression; and so on.
Comparative essays are welcome and highly desired. Contributions that are selected for inclusion will be thematically unified and cohere together as if they were written as chapters of a book.
Please send abstracts of 1-2 pages and
vitae by April 15, 2007 to be considered for inclusion.
