Probing the Borderland between Popular Music and Literature
9-9 juin 2023
University of Reims Champagne-Ardenne (France) and online - Reims (France)
One day symposium inviting contemporary research into the interplay between popular music (rock, blues, hip hop…) and literature. What innovative art forms erupt from the borderland between literature and popular music? To what extent do popular musicians rejuvenate literary modes? What does literature bring to popular music and vice-versa? How do sound and word feed off each other to create fresh artistic idioms? What does the alchemy between popular music and literature bring to the listening experience? The purpose of this symposium is to probe the confluence zone between popular music and literature as a transformative space where the two media alchemise into fresh artistic idioms.
