Call For Papers

Half a century after the Beatles’ break-up (1970) and forty years since John Lennon’s murder in New York (Dec. 1980), the ‘Fab Four’s popularity remains a global phenomenon, bridging up generations across spatial, linguistic, social and cultural boundaries. However, with a few notable exceptions, Academia as a whole has hitherto failed to pay critical attention to the Liverpool band and its manifold contributions to contemporary pop music (both then and now), and the “ways of life” emerging in Britain, Europe and the United States since the 1950s. This International Conference seeks to fill in this academic gap, by approaching, reassessing and reframing John, Paul, George and Ringo through a broad range of disciplines, themes and topics, such as:

1 The Beatles: influences, heritages and legacies;
2 The Beatles and contemporary Britain;
3 The Beatles, The British Sixties and “Swinging London”;
4 The Beatles, the British Invasion and the American rock scene: Them and US;
5 The Beatles and the emergence of (a) common culture(s);
6 The Beatles and the emergence of (a) youth culture(s);
7 The Beatles in the classroom;
8 The Beatles in literature;
9 The Beatles and contemporary pop/rock artists and bands;
10 The Beatles’ lives, loves and biographies;
11 The Beatles’ controversies;
12 The Beatles: peace and love;
13 The Beatles: sex and drugs and rock and roll;
14 The Beatles: power, politics and religion;
15 The Beatles and/in the media;
16 The Beatles’ performances: stage, screen and studio;
17 The Beatles’ discography and the record industry;
18 The Beatles’ songs: lyrics and/or music;
19 The Beatles’ filmography;
20 The Beatles’ iconography;
21 The Beatles and/in the visual arts;
22 The Beatles’ memorabilia and merchandising;
23 The Beatles and/in fashion;
24 The Beatles and the English language;
25 The Beatles in Europe;
26 The Beatles in Portugal;
27 Beyond the 20th century: Beatles Fo(u)r Ever;
28 Beatlemania: fandoms and revivalisms;
29 Other
Languages: English and/or Portuguese.
