CALL FOR PAPERS/EXPRESSIONS OF INTEREST Centre for Asian Communication, Media and Cultural Studies Edith Cowan University, Western Australia Third Annual Symposium: Cultural Values and Cultural Capital of Pop Music in Asia
The 3rd Annual Symposium is interested in questions of cultural value and cultural capital in relation to popular music in the Asian region. Some of the key areas of inquiry and debate that we consider significant include issues such as copyright, intellectual property rights, and market trends; culturally specific practices surrounding pop music; trans- national cultural and capital flows; cultural formations in relation to tradition, appropriation, and innovation in pop music; the relation between communication technologies, geographic boundaries of the nation- state, and audience constituencies for pop music in a global arena; relations between pop music and gender, race, and class. This Symposium will run in Perth for two days in late September, 1997. We expect to schedule 45 minute papers (including questions) from approximately twelve speakers. We also intend to organise a performance evening. Expressions of interest should be sent by 17 March 1997.
