Popular Music in Canada

Call for contributions for an Edited Collection on Popular Music in Canada
Edited by Charity Marsh and Holly Everett

Working Title: Spanning the Distance: Reflections On Popular Music in Canada

The editors invite proposals for a volume of essays that take up one or more of the following five themes:

Popular Music Studies in Canada: Where Are We Now?
Space, Place, and Performance in Canada
Sounding Canadian: Representation, Identity, and Difference in Canada’s Music Scenes
Media, Technology, and the Industry: The Question of Local/Global Relations in Canada
Regionalism and Popular Music Scenes in Canada

With this collection of works the editors aim to encourage dialogue concerning the place of popular music and popular music studies within Canada’s cultural landscape and the academy. Inspired by the 2006 meeting of the Canadian chapter of the International Association for the Study of Popular Music (IASPM) in Regina, Saskatchewan, we also hope to offer a range of perspectives that are both discipline-specific and interdisciplinary. Contributions drawn from the full spectrum of popular music(s) are encouraged.Deadline for Submissions:
