Hard Wired VI: So Far, So Good, So What?: Approaching the Metal Realities
3-5 May 2018, Universität Siegen, Artur-Woll-Haus
From May 3 – May 5 2018, the department of Popular Music and Gender Studies at the University of Siegen, Germany, organises the sixth edition of the workshop/conference “Hard Wired”, an informal exchange forum for metal research. The talks, in form of an international conference titled So far so good... so what? Approaching the Metal Realities, aim to bring the variety of metal realities together and attempts to overcome geographical as well as language barriers in the field of metal studies. The interdisciplinary questions and problems will be approached by engaging with the various voices of the metal community, as to render visible the gaps and overlaps of the many metal realities.
Some of our confirmed speakers include Karl Spracklen from Leeds Beckett University, UK, Gérôme Guibert from the Université Sorbonne Nouvelle Paris 3, Holger Stratmann, publisher of Rock Hard magazine and Britta Görtz, singer of the band Cripper.
Register now as we have limited space at the venue. Further information about the conference can be found on our webpage: "hardwired6.musik.uni-siegen.de”.
