Call For Papers: 2nd INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF MOTORCYCLE STUDIES CONFERENCE, Colorado Springs, Colorado, June 7-10, 2012

The International Journal of Motorcycle Studies (IJMS), the only online, peer-reviewed journal dedicated to motorcycle culture, will be hosting its inaugural conference at the University of Colorado, Colorado Springs, June 7-10, 2012.

IJMS is dedicated to the study and discussion of motorcycling culture in all its forms—from the experience of riding and racing to the history of the machine, the riders and design to the images of motorcycling and motorcyclists in film, advertising and literature. We welcome submissions on all areas related to the cultural phenomenon of motorcycling worldwide. We invite contributions from all members of the motorcycling community.  Suggested topics include:

The motorcycle or riding in film, literature, art and music
The motorcycle as art

Motorcycle racing
Motorcycle history
The role of place/environment in motorcycling
Motorcycling and issues of safety and risk
Motorcycling and the law/legal issues

Motorcycle technology/design
Motorcycling and race, class, ethnicity, sexuality or gender
The psychology of the motorcycle, the motorcyclist and the ride

Motorcycle travel/tourism
Motorcycle rights and politics
The commodification of motorcycles, motorcycling and/or motorcyclists
Motorcycle clothing/fashion
Advertising/marketing of motorcycles, gear and motorcycle culture
Media representations of motorcycling

Other literary, anthropological, geographical, historical, sociological, political, economic/business or psychological perspectives of motorcycling culture

In addition to traditional academic paper presentations, we encourage submissions using alternate forms, such as photographic exhibitions or multimedia presentations.
