U2 Conference - The Hype and The Feedback

So, I wrote last year some time about a conference being held this year about U2, their music, and their influence. The draft schedule of papers has been published here. The accepted papers cover a range of fascinating topics from the evolving performance of Bullet the Blue Sky live, including U2 in liturgy, and Bono's social activism and finding Jesus in the music of U2. Sound like a  fascinating conference and I'm looking forward to reading more about the conference - hopefully some papers, and keynote addresses will be made available online once the conference is finished.


  1. Greg Clarke's giving one of the papers! I suppose I shouldn't be surprised ...

  2. Yeah, I noticed that Greg was giving a paper too... made me more keen to go. I guess we can hope the conference becomes regular and is hosted in Australia ;-)
