> Subject: 	Italian Popular Music - call for papers/ abstracts
> Special Issue of Popular Music (Cambridge University Press) on Italian
> Popular Music
> The journal Popular Music invites contributions to a special issue on
> Italian Popular Music.
> Popular Music is an international multi-disciplinary journal covering all
> aspects of the subject from the formation of social group identities
> through popular music, to the workings of the global music industry, or
> how
> particular pieces of music are put together. The journal carries articles
> by scholars from a large variety of perspectives. These include the
> anthropology of music, cultural studies, ethnomusicology, feminism, gender
> studies, geography, history, literature studies, media studies,
> musicology,
> sociology and any other disciplines or cross-disciplines that can be shown
> to have relevance to the subject.
> Popular Music Studies have a long history in Italy, closely associated
> with
> the work of such scholars as Franco Fabbri and Umberto Fiori.  However,
> Italian popular music itself has received relatively little attention,
> even
> in Italy where the concentration has been on issues and themes of general
> interest. It is only recently that Italian Popular Music Studies have
> become an accepted object of academic interest and research. This Special
> Issue will provide an opportunity to consider Italy's specific
> contribution
> to the wider popular music scene. It represents a first attempt to place
> the study and contribution of Italian popular music in the international
> literature.  We are seeking contributions, preferably but not exclusively
> focusing on the last three decades. Contributors might consider some of
> the
> following themes:
> Italian Recording Industry
> The New Neapolitan Song
> The "New Italian Rock"
> Italian Dance Music (from disco to techno)
> Italian World Music
> The "Canzone d'autore"
> Politics, Social Movements and the New Political Song
> Italian Popular Music and Local Identities
> Italian Popular Music and the International Music Market
> Popular Music and the "Belcanto" Tradition
> Scholars who are interested in contributing to the special issue should
> send a 3-500 word abstract by January 2003 to:
> Goffredo Plastino, University of Newcastle ((goffredo.plastino /at/
> and
> Marco Santoro, University of Bologna ((msantoro /at/
> Potential contributors are also welcome to contact the editors to discuss
> and develop ideas before submitting an abstract..
