CFP: Who is He Now? The Unearthly David Bowie
Apologies for Cross-posting
In this Special Edition of the Forum Section of the journal Celebrity Studies, we are seeking papers that explore the stardom and celebrity of David Bowie. With his latest album reviewed as one of the great rock comebacks ever, the release of a series of portentous music videos that recall and reflect upon his artistic career, and the forthcoming record-breaking David Bowie Is exhibition at the V&A in London, the editors consider this to be a perfect moment to assess who Bowie is now?
The editors of this special edition solicit short papers of 1,000 to 1,500 words in length that assess Bowie in relation to his music, performativity, and identity. Suggested topics include, but are not limited to:
Bowie and androgyny
Performance and performativity
Ethnicity and whiteness
The V&A exhibition
Cultural, media memory
The Deadline for papers is 10th June 2013, with decisions made by the 1st July. Expressions of interest can be made anytime up to the 10th of June deadline.
All accepted papers will be double-blind peer reviewed with final drafts due by 31st August 2013.
The Special Edition Who is He Now? The Unearthly David Bowie will be published in the 2013 November edition of the journal.
