  I am forwarding this from the VICTORIA list - of course, it may already
have been sent to Opera-l, in which case I apologise for duplicati0n -
haven't caught up with this week's post yet.
        If I can give a paper at this conference, it might make up for my
disappointment at not being able to go to Chicago next month - I had hoped
to give a paper at a conference on THE VICTORIANS AND THE GERMANIC, which
you will agree is exactly my topic!
        I think this will be of interest to many members of Opera-l.

Subject: call for papers (with date!):Opera and Popular Culture

Submissions are invited for proposals of articles, to be collected into a
volume, that address the relationship between popular culture and opera.
The papers might explore the work(s) of a particular composer; an aspect
of opera's role in the popular culture of the nineteenth century; or an
occurrence of opera in contemporary culture.  All articles should be
written for a general reader, rather than for a specialized, academic
reader.  Though we welcome papers informed by recent academic concerns and
theoretical models, we prefer that papers avoid excessive use of
theoretical language.  Topics for articles include, but are not limited
to, the following topics:

--opera in other media of popular culture (movies, pop music, television
shows, animation or comics, commercials, magazines)
--opera and fashion
--opera and gay culture
--opera and gender
--pop culture in contemporary opera
--opera and (off)Broadway musicals
--the twentieth-century diva or tenor (superstars and marketing
--European opera and changing views of ethnicity, colour, nationality
--opera and social issues

Please send two copies of detailed proposals (about 4 pages) to either
Grace Kehler or Gyllian Phillips by May 1, 1997.  For further information,
please contact Grace or Gyllian at one of the following addresses.

        Department of English
        University of Western Ontario
        London, ON    N6A 3K7
