The international conference wil take place between 24 and 26 May at Media City UK at the University of Salford, UK and is hosted by The School of Arts and Media Studies, University of Salford, UK and the Department of Recording Industry, Middle Tennessee State University, USA.

The call for submissions is for work that responds to Prince's legacy and meaning. Work in any genre will be considered, including, but not limited to, fiction, non-fiction, poetry, multimedia, hybrid, experimental and innovative texts.
