Revisit: Music, Culture, and Heritage


Special issue of Consumption, Markets & Culture; Deadline now 20 Jun 2016

Deadline extended to June 20

Consumption, Markets & Culture
Special issue theme: Music, Culture, and Heritage
Submission deadline now: June 20, 2016

This call for papers invites both empirical and conceptual papers to consider music, culture, and heritage as a discursive site of human action and social interaction. In the societal context, music, culture, and heritage are symbolically embedded throughout the market, as well as within cultural and ritualistic practice. The complex and evolving social action surrounding markets, music, culture, and heritage are generating innovative, unconventional, and radical shifts in the way the market operates, the way music is presented to the market and consumed within, along with the associated cultural heritage. By considering music, culture, and heritage in a nonconventional, nonconformist manner, the goal is to generate innovative, radical, and even heretical schools of thought in consumer culture research.
