IASPM - ANZ 2012 Conference

I was pretty happy to find out yesterday that my abstract has been accepted for the 2012 International Association for the Study of Popular Music (Australia and New Zealand) conference, to be held in Tasmania in December this year (5th to 7th). The theme of the conference is Shifting Sounds: Musical Flow and my abstract is titled: “The Flow of Political Music on the Internet: The Get Up Mob’s ‘From Little Things Big Things Grow’ and the Legendary K.O.’s ‘George Bush Doesn’t Care About Black People’ as case examples of political music on the internet”. The paper I am going to present examines these two songs and the role the internet played in their dissemination and reception. I am particularly keen to discuss the regulatory factors that enabled/hampered their reception and how changes could be made in the future to better ensure the flow of political music on the internet. If you are interested in finding out more about the conference, check out the IASPM ANZ website here.
