The Grateful Dead - Special Topic 2022

Primary tabs

The Grateful Dead area invites scholars from all disciplines to join us for our second meeting in 2022!

 

Academics, professionals, and graduate students are all encouraged to submit proposals for papers, sessions, discussion panels, and special sessions on any aspect of the Grateful Dead and their associated contexts.

 

The area welcomes presentations on the Grateful Dead’s music, lyrics, performance, audience, critical reception, and history, as well as their associated contexts, including art, the counterculture, and fan studies. Proposals that address critical and theoretical perspectives are especially encouraged. Comparative analyses are welcome.

 

Sessions are 90 minutes. Presentations should not exceed 15-20 minutes. Panel proposals should include 3 to 4 papers; roundtable discussion panels should include 4 to 6 participants.

 

The area encourages audio/visual presentations. We also meet informally in the evenings and will have an area dinner.
