CfP Heavy Metal Generations

Die mittlerweile vierte Tagung des Netzwerkes "Heavy Fundametalisms: Music Metal and Politics" steht an, vom 9.-11.5.2012 in Prag - hier ist das CfP, mehr infos gibts auf der Homepage:

The success of the heavy metal music movement is due in no small measure to its ability and openness to experiment, diversify and innovate. Throughout the 42 year history of heavy metal, these changes and innovations have led to a plethora of subgenres and spinoff musical styles, and also seen heavy metal interact culturally and artistically with other musical forms. Yet at the same time heavy metal remains doggedly ‘true’ to form. There is no doubt that heavy metal now exists across generations, languages and cultures. Now that some of its progenitors and orginators are no longer with us, what will the future hold for heavy metal?

As the identities that have been formed over heavy metal’s generations continue to make way for young blood, this the 4th conference in the series Heavy Fundametalisms: Music Metal and Politics abstracts on themes related, but not restricted to:

The Future of Heavy Metal
The Driving forces behind the movement: secrets of success
Too old to rock? Ageism and heavy metal
Live fast, die young!
Life after death
Somewhere in time: heavy metal and history
Heavy metal genealogies, heavy metal maps
Tribute bands and re-living the past
Globalisation of heavy metal
How local scenes sustain global metal across generations
Nu-metal vs old school
Heavy metal and the cultural voice
Genres and crossing over
Musical diversification metal and punk, jazz, blues, rock, rap, opera
Groupies at the age of 60 and beyond
How do time and place function in heavy metal’s signification
Is metal still too US/Euro centric?
Age, income and consumption of the heavy metal product
Heavy metal generations and festivals

Papers will be considered on any related theme. 300 word abstracts should be submitted by Friday 4th November 2011. If an abstract is accepted for the conference, a full draft paper should be submitted by Friday 9th March 2012.
