Call For Proposals

Music, Conflict and the Politics of Identity
Edited by Susan Fast and Kip Pegley

Judith Butler recently wrote that “[t]o be injured means that one has
the chance to reflect upon injury, to find out the mechanisms of its
distribution, to find out who else suffers from permeable borders,
unexpected violence, dispossession, and fear, and in what ways" (2004).
We invite submissions for a volume of essays that examines the role of
music in geopolitical conflict, both historical and contemporary,
including wars, revolutions, protests, genocides, and the post 9/11 "war
on terror." We are interested in how music may direct and contribute to
conflict and how individuals or groups utilize it when coping with,
responding to, and/or resolving geopolitical conflict and the injury
suffered therefrom. We seek essays that engage with issues related to
identity, including individual, group, national, or transnational
identity, as well as topics that explore musical nostalgia, cultural
memory, fear, precarity and trauma. All perspectives and methodologies
are welcome; we hope to include essays that examine music and conflict
vis-à-vis live performance, institutions (war museums, war memorials
etc.), film, television, radio, and the Internet. We wish to include
authors and topics from a diverse range of ethnic, cultural and national
viewpoints. Abstracts of 500 words should be sent to Susan Fast at
fastfs@mcmaster.ca by May 31, 2007. Complete essays by December 2007.
