Northwest Popular Music Studies Network
Friday 25th June 2010
Keynote speaker: Matt Hills (author of â€˜Fan Culturesâ€™)
While a range of researchers in cultural studies - notably Henry Jenkins, Matt Hills and Cornell Sandvoss - have moved the discussion about media fandom forward, much less work has been done specifically on popular music fandom. We invite contributors from a wide range of disciplines to discuss topics associated with popular music fan culture at this free one-day study event in Chester. Papers will be twenty minutes in length. Please send an abstract of up to 200 words along with your name, affiliation, paper title, postal and email address to: Dr Mark Duffett, firstname.lastname@example.org (marking your email title â€˜fan symposiumâ€™). The deadline for abstracts is Monday May 10th 2010.
