The Artistry and Business of Queen  

Following a successful online conference about Queen, which took place in May 2021, bringing together academic papers, interviews with industry insiders, familiar with Queen’s career and the band’s most dedicated fans, we aim at publishing an edited collection, devoted to Queen’s career, artistry, representation in different media and fandom. In particular, we seek proposals for book chapters, covering but not exclusively such themes as:

  • Music and lyrics of Queen’s songs
  • Technology, studio craft, instruments, and instrumentation
  • Live performance
  • Album covers/ Artwork
  • Queen’s relationship with video, cinema and theatre
  • Queen’s solo activities
  • Queen post Mercury
  • Queen’s reception in the UK and abroad

Abstracts (in word, not pdf) of no more than 300 words with a short bio should be e-mailed by 31 October 2021 to Tony Rigg [email protected] and Ewa Mazierska [email protected].

Full chapters by 31 March 2022.
