Staging the Revolt of the Catalans: Early Modern Spanish Dialogues with Catalonia

The war of 1640 was a singular conflict in that it came to be not only a physical fight but also a propagandistic one. Printed pages were as powerful as guns.  Anonymous authors created hundreds of gazettes, notices, poems, and songs during the twelve years of the campaign, transforming the revolt of Catalonia into a war of papers. Profoundly interdisciplinary in its scope, The 17th century play, The Arrival of the Marquis de los Velez to Catalonia, is a riveting eyewitness account of a modern war.

Displaying the Guitar: The Rock Hall of Fame and the Museum of Pop Culture

In my presentation I will look closely at two museum sites, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio, and the Museum of Pop Culture in Seattle, Washington, in the context of the field of museum studies. I analyze how their representations of popular music, in particular their depictions of electric guitars, echo as well as shape racialized, gendered, and otherwise “identified” views of what can loosely be defined as rock and roll. While the Rock Hall largely strives to preserve a canonical version of the genre and primarily speaks to a baby-boomer audience, MoPOP offers a more interactive and broadly focused view of popular culture that includes rock and roll as one of many elements. Yet, even the more liberatory approach of MoPOP is clearly tied to capitalist notions of popular music distribution and commodification.
