CFP: JPME Special Issue on Hip Hop

Call for Papers
Journal of Popular Music Education Posted: November 4th, 2016 | Filed under: Calls for Papers | No Comments » Special issue on Hip-hop Hip-hop is a highly marketized, global cultural phenomenon, also experienced and created in local, regional underground scenes. It is individual, tribal, subcultural, marginal and mainstream. Hip-hip is cliché and iconoclast, rebellion and conformity. It is characterized by aspirations to individual wealth, as well as embodying and embracing movements for democracy and emancipation. It is about lyrics and beats, ‘brain and booty’, defamation, reclamation, provocation, subjugation and emancipation. It is masculine, homophobic, misogynistic and sexualized.

It is music of the streets and the…

November 2016, ca. halbe Seite, per E-Mail. Website & Infos: bit.ly/agaudio2017 Vor drei Jahren fand die erste eigene Tagung der „AG Audio“ statt, die nach einer vorausgegangenen Umbenennung der AG von „Akustische Medien“ in „Auditive Kultur und Sound Studies“ den Blick stark nach innen gerichtet hat – ins Innere eines sich zunehmend formierenden und institutionalisierenden Forschungsfeldes, und ins Innere der AG selbst. Darauf folgten zwei sehr erfolgreiche Tagungen mit klarer thematischer Ausrichtung (2015, Lüneburg, „Treueschwur und Realitätsverlust. Phasen und Dispositive auditiver Medienkultur“; 2016, Basel, „Sounding Out the Anthropocene. Investigating Sonic Media Ecologies“). Die vierte Tagung wird nun wieder an die erste anschließen,…

AG Audio 2016, Call for Papers
Call for Papers International Exploratory Workshop der GfM-AG »Auditive Kultur und Sound Studies« und des Instituts Experimentelle Design- und Medienkulturen der Hochschule für Gestaltung und Kunst FHNW   10./11. März 2016 Critical Media Lab Basel, HGK FHNW Organisation: Shintaro Miyazaki, Felix Gerloff, Sebastian Schwesinger   Sounding out the Anthropocene. Investigating Sonic Media Ecologies   The past years have witnessed a shift in media and cultural theory towards an ecological understanding of human and non-human media cultures (Fuller 2005, Hörl 2011, Parikka 2015). Man-made technological infrastructures reshaped the planet earth to an extent that geologists are discussing the establishment a new geological era: the Anthropocene (Crutzen 2002). Conversely, this draws attention to non-human actors, perspectives and ecosystems of animals, insects or machines. An ecological and posthuman approach to auditory media cultures…
