Call for papers: Nostalgias A special issue of Volume! The French Journal of Popular Music Studies Edited by Hugh Dauncey (Newcastle University) & Christopher Tinker (Heriot-Watt University) Online: http://volume.revues.org/2914 This issue will explore the ways in which popular-music-related nostalgia is produced, represented, mediatised and consumed. Morris B. Holbrook and Robert M. Schindler define nostalgia as "A preference (general liking, positive attitude or favourable effect) towards experiences associated with objects (people, places or things) that were more common (popular, fashionable or widely circulated) when one was younger (in early adulthood, in adolescence, in childhood or even before birth)" (2006: 108). Nostalgia is a perennial feature of the popular-music field, and has assumed during recent years an increasing prominence within many national contexts. This issue represents an opportunity to contribute towards defining the field of popular-music-related nostalgia, engage with and build on existing studies in disciplines as diverse as popular music studies, cultural studies, psychological studies and consumer/marketing research, and situate nostalgia in relation to other associated phenomena such as memory, commemoration and retro.
